Through lectures, guest speakers, videos and discussion we will explore the science of global climate change (GCC) and how we know a seemingly trivial rise in global temperature is significant. We will examine the present and predicted physical, economic, political and social impacts of GCC and the techniques and motivations of the deniers. We will conclude with a review of the many actions individuals, institutions and governments are taking to address this ominous threat.
