Lyrics...

yo….we're climate scientists.. and there's no denying this Climate
Change Is REEEEALL..

Who's a climate scientist..
I'm a climate scientist..
Not a cleo finalist
No a climate scientist

Droppin facts all over this wax
While bitches be crying about a carbon tax
Climate change is caused by people
Earth Unlike Alien Has no sequel
We gotta move fast or we'll be forsaken,
Cause we were too busy suckin dick in Copenhagen: (Politician)

I said Burn! it's hot in here..
32% more carbon in the atmosphere.
Oh Eee Ohh Eee oh wee ice ice ice
Raisin' sea levels twice by twice
We're scientists, what we speak is True.
Unlike Andrew Bolt our work is Peer Reviewed… ooohhh

Who's a climate scientist..
I'm a climate scientist..
An Anglican revivalist
No a climate scientist

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
Heatwaves bigger badder storms
The Green house effect is just a theory sucker (Alan Jones)
Yeah so is gravity float away mother fucker

Who's a climate scientist..
I'm a climate scientist..
I'm not a climate Scientist
Who's Climate Scientists
A Penny Farthing Cyclist
No
A Lebanese typist
No
A Paleontologist
No
A Sebaceous Cyst
No! a climate fucking scientist! Yo! PREACH~!

Hi Martin - thanks for the transcript.

Can I suggest that, if you have an edit capability, you change the thread title to "Climate Scientists Preach"?

I would be interested to see what other examples people can pull up. There have been some good ones mentioned over the years but I've not seen them listed in one place.

Thanks.

nby - not sure that the title can be edited, but too late now anyway (14 mins editability only)

Ok - here's a steadier pitch to contrast with the above and with the MO "Act on Co2: Climate Change - the facts" brochure:

It’s quite a good rap and if we’d never heard of AGW it would not be a bad attempt to raise awareness. However, we’re past that stage by at least a decade. There’s this persisting idea that if only warmists could find the right hook, the public would embrace climate science and… and… what? I doubt they have a clear idea what is supposed to happen after people are aware. It seems to involve them writing the authorities a blank cheque to fiddle with any carbon cutting exercise they come up with. There’s also a bit of underpants gnome planning going on because there’s a whole load of question marks between raising awareness and having a very low CO2 footprint. Not gonna happen dude.

There seems to be a fundamental lack of understanding why people act or don’t act so they feel they have to turn to PR people to sell climate change. They think modern media somehow holds a clue on how to reach the masses but don’t realise that Twitter, You Tube, Facebook etc are merely the advertising media and it’s their product that’s failing to sell.

Kilez More – Climate Change Lyrics in English)

You thinking of climate change and you’re screaming for laws
You’re thinking about CO2 and saying “let’s stop it”
Global catastrophes happening all because of man
We did too much driving, now the planet is too warm
If we don’t do something soon then the ice will melt
A flood is gonna kill us and the future’s gonna fall
No it aint…I’m telling you you’re off the wall
Man aint causing climate change, yeah you
think I’m crazy and making no sense
But just look at the climate institutes and you’ll see
what they do, they’re fudging the data making it hot
We just found out…their studies are made up
A hacker got in the computer and the database
Now read the mails from the CRU - they’ll make you laugh
They’re cooking the numbers, the temperature is up
Listen to me! It’s all a fraud and enough is enough

Ref
Climate change was not made by man
No… It’s only to keep the world in fear
All those who are pimpin it are being called experts
And the brothers who diss it are getting labelled sick
Climate change was not caused by man
No…it’s only to keep the world in fear
But I don’t believe it, and so I’m getting labelled sick
But it’s the price you pay when you think for yourself

II
Climate change is normal, it’s always been around
We aint done a thing, history shows us so
History books show in 1100 the planet was warm
In North England people were pickin grapes and making wine
And that wasn’t because of factories run by knights and
The shield industry driving the climate up
Then in sixteen hundred the Baltic froze over and it
Wasn’t because they stopped CO2 with ‘reform’
That’s pure arrogance when man thinks he’s got the power
To control the whole climate on the entire globe
Truth is only 1 to 3 percent comes from man
Comes from processes that are natural – so they’re lying
Inside the brainless walls of these fear-mongering crackpots
They want more power, more money, more control, more global tax
And every skeptic is getting branded by them
Being defamed and compared to Holocaust deniers

Ref
Climate change was not made by man
No… It’s only to keep the world in fear
All those who are pimpin it are being called experts
And the brothers who diss it are labelled sick
Climate change was not caused by man
No…it’s only to keep the world in fear
But I don’t believe it, and so I’m getting labelled sick
But it’s the price you pay when you think for yourself

Nice one Martin!

Somebody mentioned "I'm a Denier" on the other thread, so how about this oldie (still a favourite):

There seems to be a fundamental lack of understanding why people act or don’t act so they feel they have to turn to PR people to sell climate change. They think modern media somehow holds a clue on how to reach the masses but don’t realise that Twitter, You Tube, Facebook etc are merely the advertising media and it’s their product that’s failing to sell.

And some of them (think Mann, Weaver, Laden, Gleick) use it so abysmally poorly - e.g. "blocking" the great unwashed on twitter (their "updated" version of ignore the contrarians except to badmouth them behind their backs) that one has to wonder about the extent of their critical thinking abilities (not to mention their "assessment" skills!).

About the best that can be said about their use of social media is that they are verrrrry slooooooowwww learners!

I thought that the Kilez More Climate Change rap was excellent when I first heard it two years ago ... and it's even better now!

And in the musical vein that started this thread ... here's another of my faves, as I had noted by way of introduction:

Derek Harrington, is a Dubliner transplanted to Canada who seems quite fond of Canada’s eastern-most province, Newfoundland – affectionately known to many as “The Rock”. IMHO, Harrington certainly rocks in this catchy satire on “global warming”!
