Two Possible Climate Futures for the Great Lakes Region (One Much Better than the Other)

  • Friday, March 13, 2020
  • 1:30 PM–2:30 PM
  • Science Building 010

Guest Speaker: David Karowe, Western Michigan University

*UPDATE- This seminar has been canceled and will take place in the Fall 2020 semester. Please check back for further information at a later time.*

This talk will address the consequences of climate change for species, ecosystems, and human health in the Great Lakes Region, and how those consequences would change if we decide to reduce greenhouse gas emissions enough to limit warming to 2C.


Dr. David Karowe, a Professor of Biological Sciences at Western Michigan University, received his B.S. in Biology from Harvard University and his Ph.D. in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from the University of Michigan.  Dr. Karowe teaches courses about the causes and consequences of climate change, conducts research on the effects of rising atmospheric CO2 on plants and higher levels in the food chain, and directs national undergraduate and graduate training programs in climate change research.

Over the course of his career, Dr. Karowe has received numerous grants from the National Science Foundation, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and Department of Defense in support of climate change research and training activities.  He has also published many scientific papers, given over 150 public climate change talks, and received several teaching awards.
