And now something totally different –for Climate Change scientists:

 

One of the great conundrums of our times is to get a public who doesn’t want to hear more bad news to understand and address Climate Change.  It ain’t easy.  Folks just don’t want to hear that our fossil-fuel based way of life is unsustainable. 

The truth is that we are warming the planet to an alarming degree and every day that we don’t do something about it the worse we make our environment for ourselves and the next generations. 

Scientists have been bending over backwards to present the oftentimes difficult material on the science of Climate Change so the public can understand what awaits us.  They have livened up a series of very entertaining and enlightening videos on Climate Change:  NSF.gov - To What Degree? - What Science Is Telling Us About Climate Change - How Do We Know?

Ramping up the dialogue, Climate Scientists have created something totally different to reach the pubic on the most important issue of this century.  It’s pretty entertaining.  But, when you think about it, it’s profoundly sad that serious climate scientists have to resort to the public’s denial of such science-based issue and pander to their desire for frivolity.

Climate Scientists Rap About The Dangers Of Climate Change (VIDEO) "Fed up with reporters pretending to be scientists, scientists are now pretending to be rappers. Or rather, scientists are attempting to communicate their message on a level that average, rap-loving people will understand. The question is -- should everyone just stick to their job, or is it time for a remix, since clearly something's not working with the climate change message?
