Our Earth's Future

Debra Tillinger

Overview

Climate change is finally the front-page issue it should have been decades ago. But the science behind it can still be overwhelming. What is actually causing it? What are its effects, and how certain are we of these predictions?

Our Earth's Future is produced by the American Museum of Natural History, in collaboration with scientists from NASA and the Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory. Dr. Debra Tillinger holds a P.h.D. in ocean and climate physics from Columbia University.

In this course, Tillinger addresses climate change's impact on society, the mechanisms that dictate how our climate functions, and the importance of good scientific communication. Only through objective information can we become active participants in the crisis our planet is facing, and fight for positive change.

"What's the use of having developed a science well enough to make predictions if, in the end, all we're willing to do is stand around and wait for them to come true?"

Frank Sherwood Rowland, Nobel Prize-winning climate scientist
