Climate Change class begins April 25 in Berkeley

Tuesdays 1 – 3 PM, April 25 – June 7

A free 7-week class will examine questions on how important and rapid climate change will be, what kinds of policy changes are needed, and how quickly we must respond. First we’ll begin with the science and the expected impacts in many regions of the world. Then we’ll look at our own behavior in order to understand policy options. This short class will give an overview sufficient to understand the various aspects of an enormous problem facing us.
