The University of New South Wales has recently made several important contributions to climate change research. Scientists at the Australian university have fine-tuned their models of how variables like temperature, rainfall and soil conditions can interact to cause extreme weather conditions in the South Pacific region. They’ve collaborated with researchers around the world for the 2009 State of the Clime Report, which determined that the past decade was the Earth’s warmest on record.
And they’ve written and starred in a rap video. An excerpt:
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 muther f**cker
OK, not the illest flow. But it does get the point across a little better than a typical climatology video.
