I just completed the audio college course Energy & Climate: Science for Citizens in the Age of Global Warming by The Teaching Company.

The course looks at the debate over whether or not global warming really exists… how earth’s climate regulates temperature… sources of energy… and many other topics related to energy. Professor Richard Wolfson of Dartmouth breaks things down to the component level and shows that detailed science can be understood without a background in the chemistry/physics etc. behind them.

The course is roughly ten hours in length and is 100% captivating as he puts into perspective things such as flipping the switch on a 100watt bulb and the conversion of carbon dioxide by plants into the waste product we all love – oxygen. It was one of the more interesting of the science based courses I have taken from The Teaching Company.
