If they won’t listen to the science, then tell ’em in a way they will.
Climate change is real. There’s no other way to put it. At least 97% of actively publishing climate scientists agree that the world’s climate is changing and humans play a significant factor in its dramatic change.
And yet, there are still millions of people around the world who still deny the very real reality of global warming. “If the globe is so warm, how come Newfoundland got so much snow, hur?” Well listen here heavenly expert of all things, climate change, a.k.a. global warming, is a global phenomenon that affects the worlds climate, not day to day weather. Remember that difference between climate and weather they taught us in elementary?
So yes, you can still get snow even as the world’s average temperature rises. With it, you also get more severe storms, more extreme drought which in turn cause more extreme wildfires (ring a bell?), and more glaciers melting which leads to rising sea levels which leads to coastal cities flooding (trip to Venice anyone?).
We could go on and on but we know it’s not going anywhere. There have been thousands of articles, reports, studies, blogs, and pretty much every other type of media known to man published to educate the public about climate change. If those didn’t do it, what says this article will?
But that doesn’t mean there’s no hope. Maybe you aren’t a fan of reading, in which case, you probably aren’t even reading this. That is why students from Cappabue National School, in Ireland took a different approach. They took their fight straight to the soul, with a self-written rap that seeks to speak to your soul, since your mind ain’t listening.
Listen to their track, One Small Change, above and let us know what you think.
One thing is for sure. Whether you embrace what they’re saying or not, they are leagues ahead in their rap game compared to whatever it was that we heard during the #MAGAChallenge…
