End of Week 1...

19th January 2014
An interesting week with the Futurelearn course...

I won't regurgitate all I have picked up, I'll just add some of my own reflections on the week's content. It was a good recap of information I had a pretty good grasp of already, facts and figures were an eye-opener in the IPCC document as I hadn't really considered the absolutes of energy the sun provides and how the closed loop feedback system of planet earth 'deals' with this.

Week 2 to start tomorrow, it's going to be interesting to see what follows and how deep we go into the mechanisms and cause/effect of the various feedbacks to the climate. As a trained engineer I have a good understanding of feedback but not in such a complex way!
