This course addresses the scientific, technological and policy aspects of climate change. This is a global environmental issue that has potentially major implications for all life on earth, including human society. In recent years the subject of climate change has produced an intense international debate over the scientific basis of the measurements and predictions. The policy responses need to be understood in the context of the science and the controversy. This is a dynamic and controversial area and the subject matter and resource materials are undergoing frequent reassessment and change. Many of the sources are only available as research papers or from the web sites of researchers and government agencies.

Note(s): This course is web-based with online content only. Reliable broadband internet connection required. This course is taught under a joint teaching arrangement by staff at the Research Institute of Sustainable Energy at Murdoch University via their distance learning system to Massey University students. The dates of delivery will differ. Contact the course coordinator below if further information is required.
