We should all be well aware of Eddie Vedder and company's dedication to spreading the message of and ultimately reversing the devastating effects of climate change.

On the heels of the release of their first music video in seven years for “Dance of the Clairvoyants,” Pearl Jam has just offered up another visual for the track "Retrograde" off their latest album Gigaton.

The clip, featuring a paint-like effect washing over the entire story, shows Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg peering into a crystal ball in her psychic shop as the story's main character arrives to get a glimpse of his future.

Greta's shop is situated in a strip mall which, if you have a keen eye, you'll notice shows the names of past Pearl Jam albums on the store awnings.

Inside with Greta, the man sees not only his bleak future in her crystal ball, but all of ours - as Paris' Eiffel Tower and Britain's London Bridge are seen covered by the sea. Be sure to keep a look out for the members of the band on her Tarot cards as well.

At the very end of the clip, the lyrics "It's gonna take much more than ordinary love to lift this up" are displayed in neon above the strip mall -- a warning to each and every one of us that we must all do our part to fight the effects of climate change.
