David Archer's lectures (U. Chicago)

Global Warming: The Science of Climate Change

David Archer

This class is an introduction to the science of global warming for students without a science background. Students will examine the evidence surrounding climate change from a variety of perspectives and approaches, and, in the process, gain a multidisciplinary understanding of the scientific process.

The class has been entirely redone as Global Warming: The Science of Climate Change within the far slicker Coursera platform.

  • What’s the coolest thing about this course?
    Online climate simulations developed by the instructor will allow you to play with the physics and chemistry central to global warming.

Here is an interesting course from MIT-OCW:

Global Climate Change: Economics, Science, and Policy

Course Features

Course Description

This class introduces scientific, economic, and ecological issues underlying the threat of global climate change, and the institutions engaged in negotiating an international response. It also develops an integrated approach to analysis of climate change processes, and assessment of proposed policy measures, drawing on research and model development within the MIT Joint Program on the Science and Policy of Global Change.

You can see the list of MIT OCW earth, atmospheric, and planetary science courses HERE.

MIT OpenCourseWare (OCW) is a web-based publication of virtually all MIT course content. OCW is open and available to the world and is a permanent MIT activity. Here is an interesting course:

What’s the Picture? Answer: The MIT "Roulette Wheels" 

Climate change odds much worse than thought  

The wheel on the left depicts their estimate of the range of probability of potential global temperature change over the next 100 years if no policy change is enacted on curbing greenhouse gas emissions. The wheel on the right assumes that an international policy stabilizes CO2 (equivalent) at 550 ppm.

New Scientific Paper Rebuts Contrarian Cloud Claims Last Updated on 2011-09-06 00:00:00   New Scientific Paper Rebuts Contrarian Cloud Claims Video Press Release Background Information Published Paper Other posts Video HERE: PRESS RELEASE Clouds only amplify climate change, says a Texas A&M University professor in a study that rebuts recent claims that clouds are actually the root cause of climate change.     Andrew Dessler, a Texas A&M atmospheric sciences professor considered one of the nation’s experts on climate variations, says years of data support the mainstream and long-held view that clouds are primarily acting as a so-called feedback that amplifies warming from human activity.  His work is published today in the American Geophysical Union’s peer-reveiwed journal Geophysical Research Letters.   ...
