A Song of Our Warming Planet from Ensia on Vimeo.
The score of this musical masterpiece is a little different than your typical song. In it, Daniel Crawford plots the global temperature since 1880 by scale--musical scales. If the temperature trend went down, the musical notes of the song go down. If the temperature goes up, so too do the tones. I love how the historical temperature graph is superimposed on the images, and the line graph moves with the music. The trend is quite clear.
I love that this approach takes a right-brained tackle on the left-brain global data. It left me wondering: could this be the type of thing that finally makes a difference between the deniers and the dedicated believers. My question is how many scientist need to be right in order for us to start believing it? 97% clearly isn't quite enough yet. Perhaps by approaching it in a non-scientific way, people will truly be able to see!
