Greenpeace holds a historic performance with pianist Ludovico Einaudi on the Arctic Ocean to call for its protection Through his music, acclaimed Italian composer and pianist Ludovico Einaudi has added his voice to those of eight million people from across the world demanding protection for the Arctic. Einaudi performed one of his own compositions on a floating platform in the middle of the Ocean, against the backdrop of the Wahlenbergbreen glacier (in Svalbard, Norway). The famous musician travelled on board Greenpeace ship Arctic Sunrise on the eve of a significant event for the future of the Arctic: this week's meeting of the OSPAR Commission, which could secure the first protected area in Arctic international waters.

Trans-species cat-calling? Or would that be interspecies cat-calling? Can we even call it cat-calling if they're chimps? I'm so confused.
