Do The Climate Change (Hoax) Rap

It has come to this

Fed up with reporters pretending to be scientists, scientists are now pretending to be rappers. Or rather, scientists are attempting to communicate their message on a level that average, rap-loving people will understand. The question is — should everyone just stick to their job, or is it time for a remix, since clearly something’s not working with the climate change message?

In this video for Hungry Beast on Australia’s ABC1, climate scientists rap about the dangers of climate change, “I said burn! it’s hot in here. 32% more carbon in the atmosphere.”

They also express frustration with mainstream media’s choice of people to speak about climate change science. The opening screen reads, “In the media landscape there are climate change deniers and believers, but rarely those speaking about climate change are actual climate scientists.” Clips are then shown of politicians saying, “I’m not a climate scientist,” but speaking on television about… climate science.

So, they’re saying that Al Gore, Barack Obama, John Kerry, Henry Waxman, Michael Mann, and most of the others speaking out should shut the hell up? Goodness!

The Reference Frame has the full lyrics, and says

Unfortunately, the obscene rap by the self-described climate f*cking scientists only reinforces my viewpoint. By the way, Natalie Portman is also a climate scientist.

    That is a serious insult to all scientists in the real world.

  2. Hey, they’re just trying to spread awareness to all the rap loving kids driving around in their hoopty mobiles 😉
