What Will You Learn?

Climate change is an increasingly vital component of scientific understanding. This course will introduce you to the many facets of climate change – providing you with information about the development of Earth’s structures, its biomes, climate regulation, and oceans. You’ll also explore the anthropogenic influences of agriculture and industrialisation, humanity’s response to climate change and what the future of climate change may look like.

The course begins with an exploration of climate, climate science, and the greenhouse effect before moving onto the history and development of Earth’s structures and their relation to surface climate.

We’ll learn about specific climates associated with Earth’s biomes, their reaction to climate change, and how to differentiate Earth’s most important climate regulation biogeochemical cycles. We’ll also consider how oceans react to increased atmospheric carbon concentrations, and their role in material and energy exchange.

You’ll become familiar with climate effects on weather, ecosystems, and human enterprise, including culture and development. We’ll look at the anthropogenic environmental effects that agriculture imposes on Earth and the geographic implications of city and industrial environments on the climate, including modern contributions of atmospheric fossil fuels.

Finally, we’ll consider climate response strategies in regard to sustainable energy, renewable resources, and types of production. We’ll also explore climate trends, climate change timelines, and response efforts toward policy development, renewable energy sources and sustainable cities.

By studying this course, you will:

  • Understand the development of Earth’s structures, its biomes, climate regulation, and oceans
  • Become familiar with the anthropogenic influences of agriculture and industrialisation on climate change
  • Learn about the effects of climate change on the planet and humanity
  • Explore climate response strategies and the possible future of climate change

Brilliant set of courses. I recently completed an Egyptology course with them and was so impressed I enrolled into Greek mythology diploma. (I'm doing a masters in classical studies so the Greek mythology course will help). I'd recommend them to anyone who wants to learn new things at their own pace
