Professor Neelin is very, very nice. That said, yes, you will struggle mightily to remain awake during his morning lectures.

However, if you are north campus and you want to get a low-stress science GE out of the way, I cannot possibly emphasize enough that this class is one of the easiest GEs I have ever taken. There is no textbook, so it saves you money, too. The course materials are limited to powerpoint slides that he posts on the website. The handful of homework assignments are essentially free points if you spend a quality hour or so on them. He won't give you a study guide for his exams, but it's irrelevant, because his exams are impossibly easy. If you memorize all of the information on the lecture slides and take quality notes, there is no reason why you should not be able to pass this class with a very good grade.

Speaking as a polysci major, I am normally atrocious at math and science. However, I thought this was a very easy class that covered an interesting topic. Yes, you will need to be learning about scientific information, but it's very general. Plus, the second half of the course mostly covers policymaking aspects of climate change, so it almost feels like a north campus class after the midterm.

Dr. Neelin knows his subject and is passionate about it. He's a great professor and makes the material very simple to understand since he teaches out of a textbook that he wrote. He doesnt try and trick you, his exams are structured exactly around what he teaches and problems in the homework he assigns. The problem is that the subject is a little boring so its hard to stay attentive and take good notes in class. The class takes a decent amount of time and effort to study and learn the material for exams but nothing close to some others classes in the life of a south campus major. Overall I would reccommend taking the course with Neelin.
