Climate modelling: key to our past and future

Climate is complex. Since climatologists don’t have access to hundreds of Earth’s to observe and experiment with, they need virtual laboratories that allow ideas to be tested in a controlled manner. Learn the history of climate modelling, what are types of models? How are they validated? Can we predict the future? Can we rely on them? Are they a perfect, flawless tool? 

This lesson is particularly recommended for Mathematics or Physics - as a description of possible career path, however other subjects will fit in well.

If there are not places available to take part in that lesson, please sign up on a standby list. I would like to know how many classes are interested in extra lessons on that topic.
