Climate Change Class

How do we know our climate is changing? What impact is this change having on our planet? How does this differ from extreme climate change in the past? Using evidence from fossils, rocks, maps, and scientific data, students will learn how scientists understand paleoclimates. Together, we will construct a model to compare the temperature, greenhouse gases, and sea level of two ancient time periods with today’s changing conditions
