 Brief course description This course will begin with an overview of what drives climate change now and what has driven it in the recent past. We will then discuss the physics of the greenhouse effect and our planet’s energy budget. Moving on, we will leave the present for a Deep Time perspective on climate, ranging from the extreme cold 650 million years ago to the end-Permian hot house. Before lunch, we end closer to home with the climate oscillation of the recent ice ages (last few millions of years) and its effect on North American floras.
