Ever wondered where all those climate change forecasts come from? And how do we know that the climate is changing, anyway? In this class, we'll start at the beginning and work our way through the history of climate modeling up to the current giants of the field. We'll talk about climate models look like today, how they're built, and what they can (and can't!) tell us about the future. We'll finish by discussing the shortcomings of climate modeling and the pressing issues of the field.
