'Yo... I'm a climate scientist' preaches Aussie rap

Australian climate scientists have made an irreverent, expletive-laden rap defending their work against those who deny climate change is real and poking fun at politicians and sceptics, AFP reports.

Wearing white lab coats and sunglasses, scientists from universities and research units shelved their painstaking environmental work to make the video, hitting back at climate change deniers without a background in science.

"Yo! We're climate scientists. And there's no denying this: climate change is REEEEALL," raps Dr Jason Evans from the Climate Change Research Centre at Sydney's University of New South Wales.

The two-minute video, shown on the ABC's edgy current affairs program "Hungry Beast", has attracted more than 56,000 hits on YouTube since it was broadcast on Wednesday.

The song contains lines such as: "climate change is caused by people, Earth unlike Alien has no sequel" and "I said Burn! it's hot in here, 32 percent more carbon in the atmosphere".

It uses obscene language to describe global climate change talks in Copenhagen and warns sceptics to "deny this in your dreams, coz climate change means greater extremes".

Evans, whose work centres on looking at the global climate projections and working out what this will mean for particular locations, said he made the video after being approached by Hungry Beast.

"I'm a closet rap fan from way back," the 38-year-old told AFP, adding that he agreed that there was more media attention on climate change deniers than previously.

"I'm not entirely sure that there's mounting scepticism about it (climate change), but there's definitely a lot more media given to the sceptics," he said.
