A Fun Video on Climate Change

September 18th, 2012 | Simcha Weinstein | Comments Off on A Fun Video on Climate Change

One of the challenges that I encounter when writing about climate change is that it’s difficult to establish a tone or style on the subject that is anything but serious and heavy. In my own defense, this is not completely unreasonable as climate change is pretty serious and heavy stuff. But the truly gifted communicators are those who can take the most serious of topics and deliver them to us in a way that not only clearly presents the information, but at the same time makes us smile. Such a talented artist is John D. Boswell – the creator of the Symphony of Science – a musical project designed to deliver scientific knowledge and philosophy in musical form.

Boswell’s most recent video on climate change has just been released. The piece mixes together quotes from Bill Nye, David Attenborough, Richard Alley, and Isaac Asimov, into a delightful musical highlighting climate science and solutions. This short, three and a half minute video has an excellent chance of being the best thing you’ll see all day. Enjoy.
