British Columbia’s Climate Chanteuse
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
By day, government climate change analyst Heather Bauer crunches data and prepares plans about how best to communicate science. But Heather has a secret—a secret that is now out. This girl can sing.
Last week I had the pleasure of attending Social Change Institute, an annual gathering of people “who work to strengthen capacity, collaborations, and success of the social change sector.”
This was my second SCI, but it was Heather Bauer‘s first. In her day job, Heather (@hb2cents) works for British Columbia’s provincial government as a senior climate action analyst. But as conference participants found out when talent night rolled around, she also has a gift. Damn, she can sing.
Heather performed her original song, ”In The Event of an Emergency,” one evening before an audience of gobsmacked conference participants. The piece is, in effect, a sultry shout-out to those who fight climate disruption. Here it is, as Heather says, ”nearly naked: acoustic with a tiny bit of reverb and recorded in one shot with no editing.”
