Introduction to the physics of climate change and sustainable energy. This course is intended for students with little previous exposure to science or math. We will learn about the value of rough estimates and simple calculations. We will apply this approach to energy and power; atoms and heat; the history and basic modeling of earth's climate; energy sources including fossil fuels, nuclear, and renewables. No prerequisites.
