It was very informative, the discussions were lively and brought together thinking around the world and broadened my perspective on Climate Change and its possible effects if we do nothing now.
This course give quite comprehensive learning about climate science and makes you think how can you use this knowledge in your personal and professional domain as concrete action.

This is an excellent course on the status of our global climate crisis.
It's an huge and complex subject. It covers far more than can be readily covered in a four-week course, even if students could devote their full time to it.
Acknowledging that fact, it would be better if this course were less ambitious about the amount of material it covers. For example, many of the readings are listed as 10-minute tasks. In fact, the reading assignment may entail one or more scientific papers with some depth. To read these adequately would take several hours.
As of this date (November 2020), much of the material in this course is several years old. It's still pertinent and is not necessarily out of date, but when updates in climate science come so quickly, reading conference papers from 2013 makes you wonder how current it is.
The final assignment was to have students to prepare a video on climate change, how it affects them, and to think about what actions they could take to reduce the impact of climate change. This was a good exercise because it forced students to review and reflect on the situation and what can be done.
I certainly appreciate the immense effort that went into assembling the huge amount of material for this course. And I realize that updating the course would also be an immense task. That would be another reason for building a "lite" version of this course - it could be updated more often.
Overall, this is a great course, and I wish that more people would take it so they could learn what's happening to our climate and what we must do to avoid catastrophe.
The course is very well organized and provide a lot of interesting, useful, practical information.
It is a good course for students and also seasoned professionals as it covers a wide range of topics.
Please note the last assignment is a video. It is posted as it requires "2 hours" of work. But realistic speaking, between preparing the information required, plus editing, uploading, etc. I will give to this task no less than 8 hours.
