Pharrell Williams is using music to sound the warning about climate change.

The Grammy-winning musician appeared in Shanghai this week to debut a song titled '100 Years', which he described as "a postcard, a sarcastic one, to the people who should be ashamed to call themselves scientists and politicians."

The song addresses those who deny climate change.

President Donald Trump's administration has downplayed man's role in climate change.

Pharrell showed off the track he had recorded onto a record made from clay. Explaining that the record would be placed in a vault that was destructible only by water, he made a clear connection with climate change and rising sea levels.

However, the targets of Williams' song most likely won't hear it. The song, a collaboration with the cognac brand Louis XIII, won't be released until 2117.
