This video - titled "The Ocean" - is one of three commissioned for installation at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco as part of "Altered State," an ongoing exhibit on climate change that opened in 2008. These videos are intended to deliver an impressionistic view of the impact climate change is having on our planet. Much credit is owed to composer-performer Ed Mann who provided the haunting music. A complete list of credits follows the video.
Together these 3 videos - The Ocean, Hotter World and Melting - touch on the range of change we are facing from climate change: the melting of the polar ice and high mountain glaciers; the many changes warming is bringing to the oceans, and the direct impacts of a hotter planet.
