Learn about climate change's past and future

Earth’s Climate: Past and Future (GEOG/EARTHSC 4911), A new co-taught climate change course, will be available for students this spring. This class will examine Earth's climate and its natural development as understood from the geologic record spanning the full history of the planet, as well as how the future climate is likely to evolve.

Only by understanding the mechanisms controlling Earth's climate over millions of years – plate tectonic cycles, solar cycles, biogeochemical cycles – can we fully grasp the ways in which human activity now dominates the changes to climate.
