TOP REVIEWS FROM GLOBAL WARMING I: THE SCIENCE AND MODELING OF CLIMATE CHANGE
Overall great course. A couple of assignments were unclear as to what was required. Thankfully there is enough discourse in the forms with other students to help put you on the right track.
I found this course very interesting and informative and it has helped me understand and debate climate change to a much greater capacity
Fantastic content, extremely well structured in bite-sized pieces, and the method of delivery is very engaging.
Thanks, Prof David Archer for teaching us. You may not know us but hope to see you face to face when I visit the US after the coronavirus pandemic.
