This first lesson was intended to be a broad introduction to some topics we'll explore in more depth throughout the semester. 

Key takeaways:

  1. Understanding of the science of the human causes of anthropogenic climate change (this is probably a review for most of you).  
  2. The differences between proximate causes and driving forces of climate change.
  3. Familiarity with the IPCC terminology related to climate change.
