Today's New York Times describes new music highlighting areas of rapid climate change. An article in the university's environmental magazine, Ensia, published by Consortium member center Institute on the Environment (IoneE), describes the project and provides a link to a video about the music. U of M student and composer Daniel Crawford collaborated with geographer Scott St. George, who says "We often think of the sciences and the arts as completely separate — almost like opposites, but using music to share these data is just as scientifically valid as plotting lines on a graph.”
