Playing For Time

During the past two years, I’ve had the opportunity to see the impact of climate change up close in Alaska and in Iceland. It’s beyond depressing to observe the dramatic retreat of ancient glaciers. Greenpeace continues to try and raise awareness about the climate crisis around the world. This powerfully moving video gets to the heart of the issue in a simple, but direct way. Renowned Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi performs his own “Elegy for the Arctic”, while floating past the Wahlenbergbreen Glacier in the Svalbard Archipelago. Located between mainland Norway and the North Pole, the islands are the front line for climate change.
