    Within the cool, Gothic vaulted walls of Innsbruck's historic Claudiana building, visitors sat comfortably on a sweltering hot afternoon to hear university professor Dr. Marc Landry present a fascinating study on environmental history:  "Europe's Battery: The Alps in the Age of Fossil Fuels".  In his presentation, Dr. Landry concentrated on energy policies in the 19th and 20th Centuries, but brought the discussion up to the present day.  He discussed the importance of hydro-power sources in the Alps and gave comparisons with fossil fuel statistics.  30 people attended and asked many questions during and after the presentation, providing a lively basis for discussion.
