Sign up NOW - Classes start Jan 30 - for Rick Nolthenius's Cabrillo College course "Astro 7 - Planetary Climate Science". He's designed it for "the intelligent layman" - there's no calculations required for students, although he will throw a few formulae up on the board at times to help explain principles. There are no pre-requisites, and no homework other than reading and digesting the PowerPoints to prepare for the 7 quizzes and 1 final exam. There are extra-credit opportunities, including most of the off-campus gatherings that the folks of CCL and and the Climate Action Network put on. He will also have a couple of my own public lectures this spring as well.

It's 2:45pm-5:50pm every Tuesday, in room 454 in the Erica Schilling Forum building (the "400 building) in the center of the Aptos campus. .
