This song illustrates global warming with the help of a cello and NASA data

The is one of the most discussed topics in recent decades, but for many it can be a bit complex to visualize the changes that have hit the planet for the last 100 years.

For Daniel Crawford and some researchers at the University of Minnesota this topic is an opportunity to show he can be explained through music. Daniel became a table of data to represent musical notes increasing temperature.

With data from the Goddard Institute for Space Studies at NASA , an agency that is dedicated to studying in recent years, Daniel wrote a tune called A Song For Our Warming Planet, translating air temperature of each year in a musical note through a process called ” Sonification “.

The high notes are intended warmest years, while the bass is fresh for years. To see the video, accompanied with the graph is interesting to see how the notes soar from the late seventies until the 2013.

The video shows that to keep the song in the coming years will see notes beyond the range of human hearing.
