Great course, most of the information in a project though.

First I would like to thank Professor Harald Winkler, for giving wide lecture on “Climate Change Mitigation in Developing Countries”.

Learned closes “Climate Change and Mitigation”. The lecture provides me with the knowledge, skills and teaching scenario for transitioning my idea to develop and motivate the students to plan/act a greener more in future.

This course gives me wide understanding about what and how often climate change is ruling the earth. Course which describes about what/how the response to be held to promote the event in safe in future is that of any event occur.

Able to understand how the earth revolves and act. Even the system of climate on general atmosphere circulation patterns with behavior on climate oscillations and able to understand the components of the Earth with carbon cycle and quantitatively revolving of CO2 to the atmosphere through burning fossil fuels will influence the climate issue.

Great courses

Only 1 week of study and I already got so much that I am excited to talk about MAPS all day long with everybody.
