A team of musicians and scientists the University of Minnesota have translated 133 years—from 1880 to 2014—of global temperature measurements from four bands of latitude—the equatorial zone, the mid-latitudes, the high latitudes, and the arctic—into music played on a cello, viola and two violins.

As the temperature of the world warms, the pitch of the notes go up. Listen to the entire piece and you can clearly hear that the world is warmer at the end than at the beginning.

What an interesting way to express climate change!
