Summer Online Course Global Climate Change

Take my summer online course!  It's my first online course and I've been attending workshops all semester to learn how to make it fun, efficient, and worth taking!  I'm working on some really fun videos for the course.

MTR 1600 Global Climate Change.  It fulfills the Natural and Physical Science requirement as well as the Global Diversity Requirement, so it is a true double-dipper!
It meets online from May 28-August 2nd. 

A new textbook!  Hot off the press for 2013, up to date with even last September's sea ice minimum!  I can't wait to switch over, it is going to be so much fun!  It is a very easy to read book with tons of color figures.  There's also lots of awesome videos in each chapter to help present the material in a fun way. 
Description:  This course presents the science behind global climate change from an Earth systems and atmospheric science perspective. These concepts then provide the basis to explore the effect of global warming on regions throughout the world. This leads to the analysis of the observed and predicted impacts of climate change on these regions; the effect of these changes on each region's society, culture, and economy; and the efforts of these regions to mitigate or adapt to climate change. The interdependence of all nations will be discussed in regards to fossil fuel-rich regions, regions responsible for greenhouse gas emissions, and regions most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change.  3 credits. (General Studies:  Natural and Physical Science, Global Diversity requirements)
