Here is an excellent opportunity for those who are interested in learning about climate science from a real expert.  This free on-line course is intended for folks not having a science background and will not involve any more math than simple algebra.  Dr. David Archer is the instructor, a very distinguished climate scientist at the University of Chicago.

Panel Discussion on Our Changing Climate

Dr. Weymann will be joined on the panel by well known PG&E meteorologist John Lindsey and Heidi Harmon, local representative of Citizens Climate Lobby.

Unfortunately, this course is now filled.  No further registrations will be accepted.
We hope to video tape this series of classes and make it available on

The aim of this website is to provide interested citizens with reliable and timely access to the rapidly expanding understanding of the Earth's climate system, a topic which will be of increasing importance to our nation and the
world. Development of the material on this website is in progress, so please check back periodically for new material.

We provide links to other websites and informative posts as well as respond to local inquiries about climate science, and post information about upcoming local events bearing on this issue.

If you are new to this website, please visit the Site Guide for a brief explanation of the content of the pages on this website.

An important feature of this website is the Tutorial and Essays page consisting of step-by-step "lessons" explaining the basic principals of climate science to those who do not have an extensive background in science.

In addition, if you are a member of any group that would like a free PowerPoint presentation on "Climate Science Basics", please send a request to ray.climate (@ sign) charter.net and a time will be arranged. The presentation runs about 35 minutes, with time afterwards devoted to questions and comments.
