TOP REVIEWS FROM GLOBAL WARMING I: THE SCIENCE AND MODELING OF CLIMATE CHANGE
A detailed and really knowledgable course. The course structure and the knowledge shared by Prof. David made learning simple and interesting. The assignments are also very well structured.
Extraordinary! Challenging, but really fun as well. A lot of work, but I have not learned this much in such a short time since leaving University.
This course gives a sense of the whole picture. Wisely designed, Intelligibly explained, full of metaphors and graphics. I'm grateful to David Archer. Recommend this course.
I found this course very interesting and informative and it has helped me understand and debate climate change to a much greater capacity
