It's Never Too Late
I just stumbled across a really neat site, FutureLearn. It's a site that offers a wide range of free, online courses ranging from forensic science to climate change, business, acting, anatomy, even war studies. These courses are provided by several British universities - University of Sheffield, U. Warwick, King's College London, etc.
I just enrolled in the climate change course to check it out and I find it really informative. Here's an example. Until today I wasn't aware that our greenhouse gas layer adds 33C to our temperature. Without those gases our planet's average temperature would be -18C.
If you've got a little extra time on your hands you should think about checking it out.
