Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour Raises $21 Million For Climate Change By Auctioning Off 126 Guitars

Pink Floyd guitarist and songwriter David Gilmour is serious about climate
. He’s so determined on raising awareness about the phenomenon, in
fact, that he sold off 126 of his guitars in June and gave the profits to

to Guitar
, Gilmour’s guitars auctioned for a massive total of $21 million. Maybe
the most noteworthy guitar to be auctioned off was the iconic black
 that the songwriter used to record “Comfortably Numb,”
“Shine on You Crazy Diamond,” and “Money.” That axe was bought by the owner of
the Indianapolis Colts for $4 million. The English rock star said every penny
would be given to the environmental nonprofit ClientEarth.

global climate crisis is the greatest challenge that humanity will ever face,
and we are within a few years of the effects of global warming being
 tweeted Gilmour.
We need a civilized world that goes on for all our grandchildren and beyond
in which these guitars can be played and songs can be sung.”

97% of climate researchers agree:
the Earth is changing because of a high output of carbon releases produced by
human activity. Unluckily, not sufficient action is being taken to stop cataclysmic
disasters, prevent species from going extinct, and to lower releases in the
present and near future. Thanks to Gilmour, ClientEarth is well equipped to
tackle the challenge.

like to express my deep and heartfelt gratitude to David Gilmour for this
utterly remarkable gift. David has a long history of supporting charities and I
am honored that he has chosen ClientEarth to benefit from this landmark

said James Thornton, ClientEarth CEO.
