    I enjoyed every bit of the class.. Really insightful, opened my horizon about alternative and renewable energy, also the effects of greenhouse gas emissions.

    I am a few videos into the course. While I find the content to be presented well, and also while I plan to continue with the course, I have a huge issue with the cartoon (slide 20 - "The Environmental Cost of Coal and Petroleum"). We can debate the merits of biblical beliefs and how they support scientific LAWS or even environmental phenomena all day long, but why do I, as a bible-believing Christian, need to also be portrayed as a racist? I find this offensive.
