Rush Holt, executive officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), will headline a panel discussing the role of scientists helping to shape policy. This course will provide students with science skills to make informed and responsible decisions. Calculations suggest that feedback with water vapor could make the climate acutely sensitive to changes in CO2 level. => Radiation math Boulder, Colo. meeting on causes of climate change: Lorenz and others point out the chaotic nature of climate system and the possibility of sudden shifts. => Chaos theory Emiliani's analysis of deep-sea cores and Broecker's analysis of ancient corals show that the timing of ice ages was set by small orbital shifts, suggesting that the climate system is sensitive to small changes. => Climate cycles International Global Atmospheric Research Program established, mainly to gather data for better short-range weather prediction, but including climate. => International Manabe and Wetherald make a convincing calculation that doubling CO2 would raise world temperatures a couple of degrees. => Radiation math Studies suggest a possibility of collapse of Antarctic ice sheets, which would raise sea levels catastrophically. => Sea rise & ice Astronauts walk on the Moon, and people perceive the Earth as a fragile whole. => Public opinion Budyko and Sellers present models of catastrophic ice-albedo feedbacks. => Simple models Nimbus III satellite begins to provide comprehensive global atmospheric temperature measurements. => Government First Earth Day.

Students take notes during the speeches using a Listening Guide. -Explain the difference between weather and climate. -Show how to describe an area's climate. -Summarize the factors that control climate and climate change. Something else was needed -- volcanic eruptions and solar variability were not enough. "It all comes out as indicating that you can't resort to (natural variability) to explain the recent warming," Crowley said. "The (recent) warming is consistent with a greenhouse effect but inconsistent with any explanation from natural variability."

With new green and environmentally friendly technologies emerging, it is possible to reduce the amount of pollutants entering the atmosphere. Our results reveal differences in time-magnitude error statistics for different flow conditions. Resources dealing with polymeric materials are listed in the Organic Chemistry/Polymer Science category. The field has recognized that climate is something that changes continually under the influence of physical and biological forces and so, cannot be understood in isolation but rather, is one that includes diverse scientific disciplines that play their role in understanding a highly complex coupled “whole system” that is the Earth’s climate.
