Human induced climate change is one of the main drivers of the Anthropocene. The physical science of the earth's climate and its sensitivity to pollution is remarkably complex and an area of intense study. The resulting perturbations to the earth system permeate through and impact ecological and human systems. Businesses, ecosystems, industry, societies and political systems are all vulnerable to climate change. These systems also impact the earth's climate system and interact with climate change to create negative and positive feedbacks. This specialization will focus on the science of climate change, as well as effective ways to address it.
