Well it had to come didn’t it? There have been quite a few science raps over the last few years touching on nuclear physics, the American astronomer Edwin Hubble and even the Large Hadron Collider at the CERN particle-physics lab, so it seems about right there is now one about climate change.
The rap video for I’m a climate scientist was produced by the Australian current affairs television programme Hungry Beast.
Featuring lines such as “climate change is caused by people, Earth unlike Alien has no sequel”, the video features a raft of climate scientists doing their best Beastie Boys impression.
I will let you decide whether using rap as a means of communicating climate science is a worthwhile endeavour.
