This course is about the scientific foundations of the understanding of the global climate, its past, present, and estimates for the future. We will explain and discuss the climactic changes in the last few hundred years and the key role of the increase in atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations and consequences on the global climate, regional variations, and on human society over the next few decades and centuries. Energy technologies for the future, to reduce climactic effects, will be described and critically evaluated for global policy options.
