Turning Climate Data Into Music

Turning Climate Data Into Music

Did you know that you can turn climate data into music? I’ve made music using climate data — and you can too!

Climate music is a small but growing body of music that references the climate crisis in some way. Most songs about climate change feature music and lyrics composed and performed by songwriters and musicians. However, it’s surprisingly easy and rewarding to create climate music that takes climate data sets and converts them directly into musical notes or chords.

I’m pleased to announce that my climate parody song, I Want Climate Justice For You, has been included in a new climate music collection!

Climate Christmas Carols is a new collection of climate-themed Christmas carols collected and edited by Franz for Future. This wonderful collection features 72 Advent and Christmas carols whose lyrics have been adapted to make a statement about the climate crisis. It includes some songs in English and others in German. Credit is given to both the original songwriters and the individuals or groups who wrote the new climate lyrics.

Some of these songs are funny. Others are serious. Some of them are both funny and serious. All of them help in their own way to raise awareness about the climate crisis and what we can do for climate justice.

On Monday, August 9, 2021, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released a major new climate report titled AR6 Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis.

This report addresses the most up-to-date physical understanding of the climate system and climate change, bringing together the latest advances in climate science, and combining multiple lines of evidence from paleoclimate, observations, process understanding, and global and regional climate simulations.

What does this report say? And what does it mean for the movement for climate justice?
