As the signs of climate change can be seen all over the Earth, climate change and its dire consequences is one of the defining issues of our time. The course CLIM 101 – Global Warming: Weather, Climate and Society  is a Mason Core Natural Science course that provides a scientific understanding of the role of humans in climate change. Interest in CLIM 101 has grown every year since it was first offered in 2008, and enrollment in Fall 2020 is expected to reach 300 students. The course also surveys the scientific, societal, ethical, and political challenges associated with implementing science-based adaptation and mitigation strategies and policies to ensure that our children and grandchildren will inherit a sustainable future.
