Fun video from University of Bergen on a topic dear to us all

Greetings, I am most sure you will enjoy this fun video from the University of Bergen.

It is in Norwegian, but I am confident you will be able to get the gist of it--even if you don't speak Norwegian, as the developers have kindly provided English subtitles.

A new twist on Dicken's Christmas Carol, on a topic of vital importance for our time.
