Think someone should do something to save our planet from Climate Change?

Take this Easy-to-understand STEP-BY-STEP course on Renewable Energy and Climate Change, if you want to help. Even the smallest things YOU DO can SAVE our planet!

But first, let's start with a ... 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Fun Fact: Did you know ... the world is covered by around 70% water. But only around 2.5% is fresh, drinkable water (NatGeo).

and now a...

Scary Fact: Did you know ... that animals (mostly COWS) contribute to global warming?!! Yeah, around 20% of all world's greenhouse gas emissions (methane) is BELCHED by 1.5 billion COWS! Just to bring meat to your dinner table. Over 40% of the farmland in the USA is used for grazing cattle.

Fun Fact: Did you know ... that the Earth receives more energy from the sun in a single hour than the world uses in an ENTIRE year. Currently, we capture only 1% of the sun's energy to produce electricity

and now a...

Scary Fact: Because the world's oceans absorb about 30% of the CO2 that humans spew out, the oceans are now much more acidic. Together with a warmer ocean temperature has resulted in 50% of the world's Coral Reefs now EXTINCT, with the remaining living reefs expected to disappear in about 20-30 years!! Leaving behind green, slimy algae.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The Earth is in a CLIMATE CRISIS, and needs you. Yes, YOU!!

I have TWO courses on Udemy related to Renewable Energy and Climate Change


This FIRST course that you've landed upon is this one: Renewable Energy and Climate Change - Lite.

With 8 lectures, I'll walk you through each lecture in a series of videos.

This course provides a quick overview of:

  • Climate Change and the Environment

  • Fossil Fuels and How they are formed

  • Fossil Fuels and the environmental costs

  • Energy Efficiency and Conservation

  • New Renewables

  • Biomass and biofuels (innovative jatropha and algae-derived oils)

  • Introduction to Power, with a little Math too

  • Solar power (PV and solar thermal)


SPECIAL PROMO: Be sure to visit www. mnmichaels. com and GET your COUPONS! Don't Miss Out. Get them before they're gone!!


The SECOND course is a JAM-PACKED, comprehensive course and covers the following Renewable Energy topics:

  • Energy and Electricity

  • Climate Change and the Environment

  • Fossil Fuels

  • Renewable Energy Technologies, including:

    • Biomass and biofuels (innovative "jatropha" and "algae-derived" oils)

    • Solar power (PV and solar thermal)

    • Wind power (horizontal axis, vertical axis, offshore, 'Turbines Integrated into Buildings')

    • Fuel Cells

    • Hydroelectric power

    • Wave and tidal power

    • Ocean thermal energy


In both courses, you will have a unique and thorough understanding of the basics, terminology, concepts, and technologies to be proud of. 

Plus you'll receive a Certificate of Completion too!


Take this course because you want to:

  1. save our planet Earth! and

  2. learn about climate change and the environment (so what's all the fuss?) Or

  3. learn about fossil fuels (what's that all about) Or

  4. Live or Work OFF-THE-GRID  (you want a sustainable family, life and business) Or

  5. make an investment in YOURSELF and Jumpstart Your CAREER with a Certificate of Completion for:

    1. 'GREEN' Job Or

    2. college/university admission Or

  6. learn more as a professional whose already in the renewable energy industry

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

After taking this course you will know where oil comes from, what coal is, what CO2 and Methane are and how they contribute to our warming climate.

You will have a unique and thorough understanding of the basics, terminology, concepts, and technologies to be proud of. Plus you'll receive a Certificate of Completion too.
