Welcome students to the second part of your class on World Food Security: Elements of Climate and Climate Change. This two week course is divided into two portions, where I teach one and Dr. Mick O'Neill teaches the other half. You will have four lectures in my classroom and four in Dr. O'Neill's class. During the transition between the two classes, we will hold a two-day hackathon that will give you an opportunity to put into practice what you learned in the lectures. The second part that starts Saturday July 23 will give you a taste of the physical science basis for climate change.
You can download a copy of the lecture slides so you can view them at your leisure,
