Scand30: Impact of Climate Change on the Trolls of Norway
David S. Battisti, Professor, Atmospheric Sciences, UW

In this talk we discuss how the climate of Norway will change over the course of the century due to the burning of fossil fuels. We then assess the impact of these changes on two species of . . . trolls . . . that reside in Norway, exploring some novel adaptation and mitigation strategies for preserving the trolls. We focus on these species of trolls because they are a charismatic megafauna, but the methodology used in this talk is relevant for all species, trolls or otherwise.

Scandinavian 30 is a series of free, thirty-minute talks by Scandinavian Studies and other UW faculty held on the second Thursday of each month at the Nordic Museum. Grab a drink at our café, Freya, enjoy the evening, and learn about Scandinavia!

Doors: 6:30pm | Lecture: 7pm

Cost: Free; RSVP appreciated
