Climate Change Course


Below are details of a series of lectures by Professor John Midwinter on the subject of climate change. 5 lectures were given, and PDF versions of the slides presented can be downloaded below. They are quite large - 2 to 5 megabytes.

  • Lecture 1 - Is the climate actually changing and what evidence suggests we humans are the cause?
  • Lecture 2 - Why should we be concerned - wouldn’t it be good to be warmer? What impacts are expected and roughly when?
  • Lecture 3 - What can be done about it at the personal level? Can one save money and the planet?
  • Lecture 4 - What can be done about it at the National/International level?
  • Lecture 5 - some notes to accompany discussion. There is an accompanying list of sources.
