Really enjoyed this and learned new terminology, plus difficulties of prediction, use of risk assessments for varying aspects of climate change. Interesting papers to read and additional resources.

Lectures are interesting and understandable. It brought the role the ocean plays into sharp focus and told me things I had not heard before. Now if our politicians would just take the class!

This course has a fair amount of science in it, and the quizes are more challenging than in some others, but I would definitely recommend giving it a go. It's not the easiest course, but it still is quite accessible, and definitely will teach nearly anyone some things. I'd say give week one a try; the lectures are very interesting, and if you like it you can keep going. This is the best course I've found in terms of understanding the science and evidence of climate change.

This is a very enjoyable and instructive course. The lectures are excellent, the videos are high quality, and the essays are interesting and not too long or intimidating. The links provided are very helpful; you can study the topic of climate change to whatever academic level you wish to.
I live in Southern Africa, and believe me, climate change is having a dramatic effect on we who live here. Never mind 2100, the time of change is here, now - today.

Me encanto el curso! Quisiera que el curso durara mas de 5 semanas, me gustaría que No termine. Y me gustaría seguir aprendiendo de la Dr Debra Tillinger, y me gustaría aprender mas sobre el cambio climático, es decir aprendí bastante en este curso, pero me gustaría saber mas así como la Dr Debra Tillinger, y todos los demás científicos que están en este curso.
Y si me encanto este curso, y si aprendí BASTANTE.

This was a very well-put together class. I thought that all the presenters were excellent. The course included a lot of technical concepts that I was not familiar with. I had to go through some of the presentations more than once to grasp the information. Even with going back to the course material a second time I had trouble finding answers to some of the questions I had missed on the quizzes.

The lectures on Forcings and Feedbacks made me understand climate systems in a much advanced way. I was particularly engaged with all the videos and found them informative. Oceanography, climate models and learning about climate forecasts were also learnt during this course. Many questions that I had in my mind were answered lucidly while navigating through this course.

I have learned the basics of climate science and gained a deeper understanding of climate change. I feel better prepared to have conversations about the state of our planet and to attempt to enact positive change for the environment. Thank you for making this course available and for the thought and planning that designing this program took!

This course is really a good one to improve our knowledge on our earth. Every topic give knowledge and also good attitudes. Guest lectures, vidios and Dr. Debora Tillenger also did a great job.
I'm really thankful for entire coursera team, American Museum of Natural History for your contribution and dedication .

A brilliant oportunity to start learning about Climate Change effects around the world. Since i am an Agronomist from Chile, we can see how climate change is affecting the Andean livestock/wildlife environments. It is fundamental to add scientific data (or uncertainty) to the discussion. Thanks a lot, it was very very useful.

One of the most complete courses on Coursera, if you have previous knowledge about climate change, this course will complement it with a more scientific and professional language, in addition to providing you with the necessary tools to understand the phenomenon in-depth, I am very grateful to you!

Sirve para aprender sobre el cambio climatico, no solo en un aspecto relacionado con las ciencias naturales, sino que tambien con los impactos sociales y economicos. Me parece fantastico que hayan incluido especialistas en ciencias sociales, como antropologos, para la creacion de este curso

The quality of content, as well as the style and approach of the instructor made this course a valuable learning experience. Assessments were tough, but helped review course material thoroughly. Overall, I would recommend this course to those who are inclined to learn about climate science.

I love this course. I'm a biologist and should know some of these concepts, but it's amazing that I've learned so much in such a short period of time. Everything is explained in a simple manner, and with the additional reading you can make it as elaborate as you like. Thanks!

Though this course, l learned a lot about climate change and how to discuss this problem. Besides, the parts involving geography were explained in a charmingly simple and clear way. Above all, it was an extraordinary experience and I has recommended it to my best friends.

The best course I made in this topic. Well collected, informative, understandable even for me. I am not related to science nor to climate science, I am just a guy would like to understand what is going on. Thank you to bringing me one stop towards my purpose!

As my very first course here in Coursera I think this one is the perfect and every beginner should pick this course. Not only it tackles basic things about climate change but also as you progress through the topics it'll become more interesting and diverse.

I enjoyed taking this course! I realized just how litte I knew about the climate and how it effects our planet. I have a new found appreciation for the responsibility of our actions and how we can all make a difference in our Plant's future!

This was a great course! A variety of teaching styles (lectures, guest experts, videos, & readings), very well presented, & just fun. The "this is what I do for my research" bits add a personal touch, even tho this is a MOOC. Nicely done.

I've tried taking other courses on this subject and found the lessons difficult to understand. This one was perfect. Dr. Tillinger explained everything clearly, and now I feel I understand the basics of climate change.

This is an excellent course. It provides a clear explanation of many climate drivers. Dr Tillenger, especially, is worth listening to. Her clarity is exceptional and her enthusiasm (and concern) are infectious.

This is a very good course that has hardly aged over the years. As any learning process it requires concentration and attention but gives great satisfaction from the perceivable increase in understanding.
