    Overall

    Global climate change is a complex subject. Unfortunately, many of those who write about it do not understand the facts and theories that are behind the current opinions. So, we have dozens of opinions written (or spoken) by people who don't understand the subject.

    If we are changing the earth's climate in ways that could harm us, we will need to do something about it. Something effective. But before you decide, try to understand. These lectures are a good place to start.

    They are lectures, not a popular science book. They can be dry and technical in parts, but they are fascinating. The lectures and course notes are thorough and understandable. You need only a high school science background to understand them.

    When you are done, will will know enough to be able to understand why environmental scientists feel the way they do. You will also understand a little of the politics and economics that are part of the current debates over global warming. You will know enough to develop an opinion of your own. You will be able to separate the science, from the economics and politics - and the facts from the opinions - on both sides.
