I’m looking for an introductory course on climate change. Does the Institute offer something like that?

National Wildlife Federation (NWF) has partnered with former US Vice-President Al Gore and the makers of An Inconvenient Truth to bring the issue of global warming from the big screen to the classroom. An Inconvenient Truth in the Classroom is built around the Academy Award-winning documentary. Designed to encourage analysis of the science of global warming and its relevance to current events, this resource can be found at http://www.nwf.org/~/media/PDFs/Eco-schools/AITInTheClassroom7_08.ashx.
