Global Climate Change: Environmental Studies 245
This website is the homepage of the St. Olaf interdisciplinary course, Global Climate Change. The course focuses on how and why Earth's climate has changed throughout its history and how it is likely to change in the near future. The course draws from geology, chemistry, meteorology, oceanography, and policy studies. Much of the science involved in this topic is cutting-edge, so quite a bit of the reading will be from scientific journals. Users can follow links to a PDF syllabus and assignments

Climate and Water in Ghana
shows the dramatic contrast between the rainy and dry seasons in West Africa and helps students define and identify the features of climate. They apply this knowledge to the study of how climate affects people and the environment.
17.441 International Politics and Climate Change (MIT)
This course examines the interconnections of international politics and climate change. Beginning with an analysis of the strategic and environmental legacies of the 20th Century, it explores the politicization of the natural environment, the role of science in this process, and the gradual shifts in political concerns to incorporate "nature". Two general thrusts of climate-politics connections are pursued, namely those related to (a) conflict – focusing on threats to security due to envir
