Moving the Needle

The Pragmatist's Guide to Climate Change
Teaching Slides

Book: Ivo Welch and Bradford Cornell
Slides: Ivo Welch

The slides will be updated throughout early 2022. They are not yet debugged. They are better considered experimental.

The slides come in various formats. The base format are the markdown source slides (towards the end of this page, in light yellow). All other slides are generated from these markdown slides: beamer, powerpoint, and html slidy. The idea is that instructors should only have to work with the format that they prefer and ignore the others. For example, instructors who want to use powerpoint (not me) can fork (download) the powerpoint version. The actual contents should be the same across all formats. All the graphic figures used in the slides are also linked (at the end).

Instructors should be prepared to make their own changes to these slides. Modification is important here, because instructors may not agree with everything that we are writing, so they may need to add their own alternatives, remarks, comments, etc.

I hereby grant permission for others to use and modify these slides, as long as their origin is acknowledged. Of course, the slides work best in conjunction with the textbook itself—and because this is free for now, students should love it.

Beamer (LaTeX / Pdf)

You may want to replace the LaTeX preamble with your own for different themes, etc.

Markdown Source

These are the source for all the other slides. I edit these files and then generate the other formats from these files. They are probably only of use to you if you learn pandoc.
