Our Earth’s Future
March 3, 2015
Our Earth’s Future is about the science of climate change—and how to talk about it. You will hear from scientists in the fields of climatology, oceanography, Earth science, and anthropology, and study how climate change is affecting people and their ways of life. You will explore the multiple lines of evidence that human-induced climate change is happening today and consider what that means for the future of our planet. By the end of this course, through understanding key scientific principles, you will be able to confront misconceptions and contribute confidently to conversations about climate change.
This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under grant number MA-10-13-0200-13.
