This course is designed to inform and educate people on Climate Change not from the mouth of a scientist but rather an impartial observer interested and educated in the topic. Often the issue is a hot political issue with vested interests duking it in media and social network platforms. This dilutes everything and makes it almost irrelevant to the average person. I present the most up-to-date science attempting to steer clear of biases. The course is designed for beginners and intermediate level students, though experts are welcome too!

Our journey will introduce us to a range of characters, such as the...
