Climate change 101—and beyond

Sean Carr at The University of Chicago Magazine,
"Undergraduates in David Archer’s Core class, Climate Change: Understanding the Forecast (PHSC 134), don’t have a choice: they have to do the math. ...

"For the more casual learners in his online course Global Warming: The Science of Climate Change, launched in fall 2014 and open to anyone with a fast enough internet connection and a curiosity about climate science, Archer is more lenient. He doesn’t avoid math altogether but says, 'I would hate to have you get turned off by not wanting to deal with math.' The online version also skips over quantum mechanics; otherwise the two courses cover much of the same information."
