    Just watched it... we should take heed, the experts are saying that global warming will eventually eclipse any contagion. It's very poignant and superbly put together; thanks guys!

    I liked it, and I'm not really big into videos.  Wonder how they got Greta in the video, did they just reach out or was it a whole process.  I assume they couldn't just use her image without some authorization.

    I thought the guy shouldn't have been a middle aged white dude, but the art was unique and the message righteous.

    When is this flooding supposed to happen? 10 years now?

    "Wakely (Filmmaker) says Thunberg was “the only person” he could envision in the fortune teller role, describing the 17-year-old Swedish native as “an absolute stone cold hero” for her unflinching climate change activism. With her permission, Wakely utilized a variety of existing footage of Thunberg which was then grafted onto the body of another actress to generate the finished product. “She never had to act a frame, but she provided that emotion I was looking for. It was a huge thrill to see an email in my inbox from her saying that she loved it,” he says."

    And about the middle aged white dude:
    "In the same vein, the customer who braves a downpour to find his way in to see the fortune teller was initially to be played by a professional actor. But without the ability to film on a set, Wakely turned to “Avengers” and “Captain America” cinematographer Trent Opaloch to portray the character instead. “He was stuck in his house in the middle of Canada, so it wound up literally being me directing Trent as he set up the camera and placed himself in the shot,” he says. “It was a really interesting and sobering and in some ways energizing time to be creating art like this.”"

    THANK YOU Pearl Jam !!!

    I just saw the Video and got tears in my eyes ;) and so I am just overwhelmingly thankful right now for this wonderful peace of art that reflects so much my point of view, too... 
    Since 20 years I am following science on Climate change & the scaring forecasts and try to draw attention (n my little space) to that biggest problem of our times for all living beings on unique mother earth... and then, Greta started her actions and I started to believe in our youth, the young generation! ... and the movement grew and with it also my hopes - ...
    and now all is so perfectly set up in this Video, so Viva PJ, you just overtop again and again, you just rock and I am so grateful for your art and spirit, all again so perfectly combined,- now in 2020-  in this magic Gigatron flow - in your wonderful music, vision and ACTION! :blush:
    - so thank you so much, sent from the other side of the ocean - 

    ...and ps, I needed an outlet (again) after this stunning art experience that caused many emotions now, and hey, it is Saturday morning,
    10 o'clock here - when hope is still on the rise :) bee: 
    there is no way to peace, peace is the way!
    ...the world is come undone, I like to change it everyday but change don't come at once, it's a wave, building before it breaks.
