Course Description:

The earth's climate has changed dramatically over time and will continue to evolve into the distant future. Join Dr. Ed Clifton as he leads us on a fascinating two-part exploration of the past, present and future of climatic conditions on our planet. The first session will focus on the factors that influence climate as well as the techniques used by scientists to reconstruct ancient climates. The second meeting will review the earth's climate over time with special attention given to where our present climate fits in. We'll also look at both short- and long-term predictions of what lies ahead for our planet.

Change of Format:

We had planned to send videos of Dr. Clifton's talks for viewing at home before joining him via Zoom for live Q & A:
1. Instead, to our delight, Dr. Clifton will deliver his talks live on Zoom fielding questions at the end.
2. Following each talk, you'll receive a video recording to watch or rewatch as you wish.
