Climate Science Explained: Understanding Current Issues on Climate Change NEW Climate change is in the media, politics and public discourse, but few people are all that familiar with the history, issues and science.

Includes the basics of climate science; changes in climate versus weather; current issues; and the chance to interact with climate scientists. You will learn to make more informed decisions when presented with climate topics in general conversation or political decisions.
