We thank Michael Duffy of the University of Minnesota’s School of Music, who directed the recording and production of A Song of Our Warming Planet and Planetary Bands, Warming World. We also thank Julian Maddox, Jason Shu, Alastair Witherspoon, and Nygel Witherspoon for their skillful performance on Planetary Bands, Warming World. The video for Planetary Bands, Warming World was shot on location at Northrop. Temperature data were obtained thanks to Reto Ruedy of NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies. Support for this work was provided by the University of Minnesota’s Institute on the Environment, Department of Geography, Environment and Society, and College of Liberal Arts.
