Aussie Climate Scientists Rap

with one comment

I’m not normally a big fan of Rap music, but I love this:

A transcript from the Wonkroom:

So begins a new rap video by actual climate scientists from Australia, one of the continents hardest hit by global warming pollution. The group of scientist-rappers, in coordination with the Australia Broadcasting Corporation’s comedy show Hungry Beast, rap about science, politicians, and right-wing deniers with an amusing combination of fact and irreverence. Here’s their take on the dangerous risks of positive feedback loops and intensification of extreme weather:

Feedback is like climate change on crack.

The permafrosts subtracts: feedback!

Methane release wack : feedback!

Write a letter then burn it: feedback!

Denialists, deny this in your dreams,

Coz climate change means greater extremes,

Shit won’t be the norm,

  1. I prefer another “REAL” Aussie Climate Scientist’s (Dr. Bob Carter’s) “Rap” on the subject. I believe that it’s the best brief & concise introduction to the Global Warming / Climate Change debate available anywhere.

    BTW: This debate has been going on since the earliest days of human society. I discuss the history of this debate for the last 159 years in the pages of the New York Times in one of my articles on the subject
