The Friday Funny: I’m a climate scientist!

When there is disagreement about key findings in evaluation (or, in science, or the world in general), should some opinions – like actual expert opinions – be given more weight?

This group of Australian climate scientists thinks so, and have put their message in this creative video (if you can’t view it below, e.g. because you are reading it on the email or RSS feed, please click through to the site).

Who ever said scientists were boring?

[If you prefer to see the original version, which contains some rather more – er – colorful (i.e. potentially offensive) language, click through to the unsanitized version on YouTube.]

And hey, you can buy this song on iTunes too!

The clean(-ish) version of the lyrics follows:

In the media landscape there are climate CHANGE deniers and BELIEVERS, but rarely those speaking about climate change are actual climate scientists.

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 bidness 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 [muckin round] 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,

Heat 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 muther floater

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 Fox News Journalist?
No
A Paleontologist?
No
A Clean Coal Lobbyist?
No
A Cashed up Alarmist?
No!
A climate scientist!

Yo! Preach!
