Obscene climate scientists' rap

Your humble correspondent was brought up to like the classical music and to play the piano but I actually like pretty much all genres and my tastes are arguably close to the mainstream.

However, let me admit that I consider rap to be an inferior genre specifically produced for consumers whose IQ is mostly between 70 and 80.

[I'm not a climate scientist]
[I'm not a climate scientist]
[I'm not a climate scientist either]

[Yo, we're climate scientists]
[and there's no denying this]
[Climate change is real!]

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
The Greenhouse effect is just a theory sucker (Alan Jones)

Yeah so is gravity float away mother fůčkéř

Who's a climate scientist..
I'm a climate scientist..
A Penny Farthing Cyclist?
No, a climate scientist.

A Lebanese typist
No
A Paleontologist
No
A Sebaceous Cyst
No! a climate fůčkíňg scientist! Yo! Freaks!

Unfortunately, the obscene rap by the self-described climate f*cking scientists only reinforces my viewpoint. By the way, Natalie Portman is also a climate scientist.

They just look so stupid and obscene. Because of their inability to include a single intelligent sentence into the lyrics, you may say that there is probably not a single person among the "musicians" who should be a scientist in a properly functioning system of institutionalized science.

Still, the names of the people are genuine and they're various kinds of climate graduate students and similar stuff. These obscene imbeciles are actually being paid as climate scientists. It is not hard to predict the quality of the scientific results that these "climate scientists" are capable to produce.

Poor Australia. And it's not just Australia.

If you look at the actual scientific output of all the people in the rap, it's, of course, poor or non-existent. For example, the blonde chick Ailie Gallant (a postdoc) is showing a paper, claiming that unlike Andrew Bolt, their work is peer-reviewed. But what she's showing is actually a paper that none of the people in the rap co-authored. For example, Ailie Gallant only has one 2007 paper co-authored with 2 more people that has 29 citations. Otherwise her work has been non-existent. But she surely looks attractive in a stupid rap video.

Climate science vs particle physics

Just compare the content of the rap with a rap produced in another discipline, particle physics.

Sung by Kate McAlpine and L.M. although the latter had to speed up his singing by a factor of 1.5; this was just sssooooo fffaaassssttt :-), especially in a language that I only learned as an adult.

Among other things, the 2008 rap above explains the LHC proton-proton collisions, their speed, the size of the experiment, the differences between the four detectors, LHCb, ALICE, CMS, and ATLAS and their main purpose, the fact that the device will either detect the Higgs boson or a serious reconstruction of the particle physics theories will have to be done, the method of finding new particles via missing transverse energy, the characteristic locations of black holes, the role of dark matter in cosmology and the differences between the astrophysical and terrestrial detection, fundamental weakness of gravity, the method how large extra dimensions may explain it and how the corresponding Kaluza-Klein modes may be detected, among other things.

And the bad rapper doesn't even claim to be an expert. AlpineKat is a self-described science journalist. Still, her video couldn't be recorded by a generic rapper - unlike the climate rap - and it is something I am ready to call a self-evident exception from the rule the rap is addressed to audiences with IQ between 70 and 80. In her case, it is not an actual rap; it may be viewed as a parody of rap.

But what about the rap from the "climate scientists"? It is the real thing. It is composed by the same kind of people who are dumb as soup which is why they listen to rap and produce rap. The "climate scientists" are not just pretending to be mentally limited idiots; they are idiots.

The content, focusing on childish attacks against "deniers" (who are 10 times more educated in the climate science than the rappers) and cruelly making fun of the fact that the politicians who attended the insane Copenhagen conference are homosexuals, is not a parody of raps; they're actual rappers driven by the same hormones and using the same primitive content of their brains that drives most other rappers.

When I am listening to this rap, I can't fail to recall my shopping in a supermarket in New Brunswick. I had no problems to visit the black neighborhood but I was always feeling more pleasant when there were cops on a nearby sidewalk. ;-)

Well, when it comes to similar genres focusing on free-minded teenagers enjoying some wild life, punk rock bands such as Horkýže Slíže (Slovakia) would be more likely to be my choice.
