I’m teaching a new class this spring on climate. It is an upper division capstone course. I am doing some new things — flipping the classroom, running the class as a semester-long workshop and carrying individual and group projects (focused on decarbonization analyses) throughout the term.
I’ll be a lot of fun. Here is a link to the syllabus.
Comments, suggestions welcomed!

It turns out. Clark et al. 2019 is fatally flawed. I have been in touch with Clark et al. and the editor of the journal for the past six weeks. Read on for the details, which I am publicizing for the first time today.
