Climate Change: Challenges and Solutions

 
Course Detail
 
<p><span style=The free course is open to absolutely everybody – whether you are a student considering coming to university or are simply interested in learning more about climate change. The course is delivered entirely online covering a different topic each week. 

Course content

‘Climate Change: Challenges and Solutions’ has been produced by eight leading academics from the University of Exeter – from mathematicians to marine biologists – and is led by Tim Lenton, Professor of Climate Change and Earth System Science, working in partnership with the UK Met Office.

The aims of the course are to explain the science of climate change, the risks it poses, and the solutions available to reduce those risks. It sets contemporary human-caused climate change within the context of past nature climate variability, balancing the ‘bad news’ about climate change impacts on natural and human systems with the ‘good news’ about potential solutions. These solutions can help avoid the most dangerous climate changes and increase the resilience of societies and ecosystems to those climate changes that cannot be avoided.

This course is an exciting opportunity for you to examine climate change from a fresh new perspective.

 

Issues we will cover include:

  • We have reached a real tipping point in Earth climate systems. For example, the Greenland ice sheet is melting, raising sea levels, and there’s simply no going back.
  • We’re entering a new geological era – the Anthropocene. We are no longer going through natural traditional climate cycles. The Anthropocene is driven by man – and how much carbon we are putting into the atmosphere.
  • Geo-engineering may come into its own. Cloud-seeding. Carbon storing. Mirrors in space. Iron fertilisation.
  • Climate change will have a dramatic effect on food production around the world, rendering traditional patterns unviable but opening up new opportunities elsewhere.
