Elegy For the Arctic

Elegy For the Arctic

Fires are raging, ice is melting. In a bid to save the singular "purity and fragility" of the rapidly-melting Arctic ice - and in support of eight million voices calling for its protection - Greenpeace has released a video of renowned Italian pianist Ludovico Einaudi performing on a floating platform before Norway's Wahlenbergbreen glacier, cracking and groaning even as he plays - a haunting reminder of what's at stake.

I had to get the box of tissues whilst watching this. Like the old add with the Indian. So sad, so madding, so beautiful.

Thanks, I never knew it was possible to piss, cry, and laugh all at the same time...
