The latest in our continuing lecture series Scholar'd for Life, in which we invite great professors to share a lecture on their area of expertise!

Ankur Desai, Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Studies at UW-Madison, presents a lecture entitled "Are We All Doomed? An Optimist's Guide to How Research and Policy Can Reduce the Harmful Effects of Climate Change, Protect Wisconsin's Landscapes, and Grow the Economy."

Ankur Desai is Associate Professor of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences at the UW–Madison's Nelson Institute for Environmental Studies. He is a faculty affiliate of the Center for Sustainability and Global Environment (SAGE), the Freshwater and Marine Science Interdisciplinary Graduate Program, and the College of Engineering. He studies how ecosystems respond to climate variability and how the climate responds to ecological patterns and processes.

Scholar'd for Life is a lecture series presented by the Middleton Public Library in partnership with the UW Madison Speakers Bureau. Taking the "Wisconsin Idea" as its starting point, this series aims to promote lifelong learning, intellectual curiosity, and engagement between academics and the community as a whole.
