This class describes the science of global warming and the forecast for humans’ impact on Earth’s climate. Intended for an audience without much scientific background but a healthy sense of curiosity, the class brings together insights and perspectives from physics, chemistry, biology, earth and atmospheric sciences, and even some economics—all based on a foundation of simple mathematics (algebra).

by Sara is taking this course right now, spending 2 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
It has a great content and the teacher gives good explanations but in the quizzes you have to use climate models from certain websites and if you have a very slow internet connection (like me) sometimes they just don't work, that means you don't have the answer to the questions and that is frustrating.

This is a great course for the non-scientist to understand the scientific mechanism and models behind climate change. I requires quite a bit of work but the lecturer explains things extremely well. Overall, some of the quizzes could be better thought through but this is a very good MOOC.
