Live Stream: Resonate! How 90 Seconds of Cello Music Is Helping People Connect With Climate Science

November 20, 2013 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Watch a live stream of the weekly Frontiers in the Environment talks at the University of Minnesota!

Daniel Crawford, Undergraduate, College of Liberal Arts;
Scott St. George, IonE Resident Fellow and Professor of Geography, College of Liberal Arts;
Todd Reubold, IonE Director of Communications

Anthropogenic climate change is one of the most challenging problems humanity faces, but public opinion surveys show that many people are skeptical about global warming. In this seminar, Crawford, Scott St. George and Reubold will share their experiences with using music to help climate science reach out to new audiences. Their first collaboration — a music video that reconfigures global temperature data as a cello composition — has been described as “amazing, and eerie” and “an effective tool to show people that our planet is changing.” Join us to learn what global warming sounds like!
