21H.421 Introduction to Environmental History (MIT)
This seminar provides a historical overview of the interactions between people and their environments. Focusing primarily on the experience of Europeans in the period after Columbus, the subject explores the influence of nature (climate, topography, plants, animals, and microorganisms) on human history and the reciprocal influence of people on nature. Topics include the biological consequences of the European encounter with the Americas, the environmental impact of technology, and the roots of t
Global Warming: Science and the Message
When you hear the words "Climate Change", what do you think of - last week's, thunderstorm, or something longer-term? Do you think the media gives credence to climate change deniers? In this video Dr Ben Newell from UNSW's School of Psychology talks about the difficulties for climate scientists in cutting through misconception and misinformation to get their messages across. Dr Newell has written a paper on the Psychology of Global Warming with Professor Andy Pitman of the UNSW Climate Chang

Robert Higgs, of the Independent Institute, talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about the Great Depression, the New Deal, and the effect of World War II on the American economy. Using survey results, financial data, and the pattern of investment in the 1930s, Higgs argues that New Deal policies created a climate of uncertainty that prolonged the Great Depression. Using consumption data, he argues that prosperity did not return during wartime, but rather after the war when government interventi
Robert Laughlin of Stanford University and the 1998 co-recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics talks with EconTalk host Russ Roberts about energy use and the future of the earth's climate. Drawing on his forthcoming book on energy, Laughlin predicts that we will continue to use cars and planes and electricity long after coal and petroleum are exhausted and speculates as to how that might play out in the future. The conversation concludes with discussions of other concerns of Laughlin's--the outl

It has been known for centuries that a secret society called the Illuminati was formed by a Prussian King in 1742. It appears that a family tree if you will was created down through the centuries, through only the powerful elite.

This course introduces students to climate studies, including beginnings of the solar system, time scales, and climate in human history. It is offered to both undergraduate and graduate students with different requirements.
Throughout Earth’s history, mass extinctions of species were closely related to physical and chemical changes in the atmosphere and the oceans. These variations were controlled by heat from the sun, the distribution of oceans and continents, the extent of ice sheets; volcanic eruptions and asteroid impacts, air-borne particles, the eruption of methane and greenhouse effects. Greenhouse episodes were amplified by carbon dioxide and methane feedback effects from warming oceans and drying ve
Near Space is an introduction to some of the scientific concepts of the global climate system, and to the concept of anthropogenic climate change. In this module we will look at physical, chemical and biological influences on the climate.
The Earth Through Time module examines our planet in terms of its major systems; the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, geosphere and the biosphere, all of which are constantly interacting. The module explores the topic of climate change throughout Earth’s history; climate change is not just a contemporary phenomenon, it has happened in the geological past at times abruptly and catastrophically.
These Second Life training guides have been split into three parts. Part 1 takes you through your first steps in achieving a Second Life by setting up your account and creating your avatar (your virtual persona in Second Life). Part 2 reminds you of the basic skills you require to operate in Second Life and enjoy the experience. Part 3 is about taking part in or directing groups for learning in Second Life.
