As we are reading Storms of my Grandchildren it is also relevant to check out the updates to the climate science on James Hansen's website and blog, where you can also find loads of other presentations, videos, and information that he has contributed to. Excellent source of information!
Tomorrow we are in Geocentrum and will meet in Norrlands I. Looking forward to the pecha kuchas!
Some information before Thursday's conference!
Each group is responsible for being the discussant for one other group during the conference presentations. This means asking questions and leading discussion afterwards. Prepare by reading the paper for which you will be a discussant. You will find them on studentportalen.

As we said last Thursday, we will be doing a time-lining activity during Seminar 2 and have divided you into time periods based on your conference paper groups. In order to prepare for this, please spend just a few minutes INDIVIDUALLY to find out some events that you find important and/or relevant to Sweden's environmental history. You should bring these with you to the seminar. Everyone is responsible for a 25 year period.

Next week we will be discussing the politics of natural resource management with a focus on a specific case in Jokkmokk in Northern Sweden. We have divided you into groups which are posted in studentportalen and assigned you an actor for next week's meeting. You should focus on this actor when you read the article before class and we encourage you to try to search for more information about each actor as well! Use the questions on padlet to guide your reading.
There is also a pdf copy of the Robert Yin book on studentportalen now.
