ENSC 405 - GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE
This course examines the scientific evidence for global climate change in the modern era, and the natural and human causes of climate change on various timescales. The probably effects of climate change through the 21st century and beyond, including 'global warming' as well as localized cooling, the effects on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and natural resources such as soil and water, are examined. The human dimension of climate change is also addressed, particularly the effects on settlements, infrastructure and health. Finally, the scientific and technological options available both now and in the near future that may help to decrease the rate of climate change, as well as the policy and economic considerations that will be required for humans to adapt to the changing global environment are explored.
