Hungry Beast - I'm a Climate Scientist

As we all get ready for the Hungry Beast special on uploading next Wednesday night I thought it worth another look at their "I'm a Climate Scientist" rap from last weeks show. I have spent many a day searching for music on global warming only to be completely frustrated by the lack of search results and can't but think that there must not be very much music on this topic which I find surprising given its immediacy. Take a look at this clip, it features real climate change experts with a message about the environment and the impacts humans are having:

You can also read an interview with some of those that participated here. Described as a 'fun and light-hearted' way of getting the message across lets hope this is one of many songs that are written on this topic as a way of educating and empowering people to take action.
