Climate is an original composition by Erik Ian Walker
created in collaboration with The Climate Music Project.
Tracking historical and projected variations in the climate system from 1800–2250,
the composition is guided by four key markers of climate change:
carbon dioxide concentrate, near Earth atmospheric temperature,
Earth energy balance, and ocean pH.
Carbon emissions from human sources impact each marker,
which is assigned a musical analog—tempo, pitch, distortion, and compositional form—
 to manifest the data as a fully realized musical work.

Climate follows two possible future scenarios:
“business as usual,” in which we do little or nothing to rein in carbon emissions,
resulting in an approximately 9º Celsius rise in global temperature and catastrophic impacts by 2250,
and a more hopeful “2º” scenario (modeled briefly beginning in 2150)
where society succeeds in reining in emissions during the first half of this century.
