Win $500 in JunkScience.com's 'Climate Change Denier Tattoo' Sweepstakes!

Ready to be out and proud? Enter JunkScience.com’s Climate Change Denier Tattoo Sweepstakes!

Sydney Morning Herald columnist Richard Glover appallingly suggested that climate ‘deniers” be forcibly tattooed for purposes of future shaming.

While the chilling totalitarian mindset of this barely tongue-in-cheek commentary speaks for itself, we at JunkScience.com like to think of our status as climate change skeptics as a principled stand against shoddy science, public policy hysteria and unnecessary economy-killing regulation.

In that spirit, we’re proud to announce this opportunity for fellow skeptics to win $500 by entering the Climate Change Denier Tattoo Sweepstakes.

You don’t need to get a real tattoo to enter. Simply draw on some body part (obscenity prohibited) your concept of a climate change denier tattoo. Please provide a caption or short description for your photo. To inspire you, we have provided a sample entry below.

  1. I can’t draw…. but using the old MAD magazine Alfred E. Newman Logo head shot with his famous “What me worry” slogan underneath in a curved portrayal almost parallel to a curved bottom of the photo head shot would be my nomination. Sorry, I can’t draw so perhaps this disqualifies the entry, but, as noted above, what me worry?

  2. As if I didn’t have enough to do already . I could use the money though. it is hard to think right now maybe tonight while the kids are asleep . I am sure , maybe a polar bear eating a global warmer believer.

  3. At lease we have a sense of humor about our stands. I’ve been to Greenbuild a few times. If you want to be sure of eating lunch alone (shades of junior high) make a joke about green anything. Environmentalism is a religion and they have about as much of a sense of humor as some of the radical Islamists.

  4. I had to send the following e-mail to Richard as soon as I read this!
    Yo, Richard…
    Send me a list of properties as they become available. They should be pretty cheap as the current owners seek to unload them as a result of your column! Since I’m a denier I’m willing to take the risk and I want to buy up as many of those islands and low-lying coastal properties in your part of the world as I can!

    Thanks,
    Dave in Florida, USA

  5. How about we deniers have numbers tatooed on our arms? Nazis have done this once before so our econazi friends should be familiar with the concept.

  6. If Glover comes near me with that denier “tatoo” nonsense, he’ll get a tatoo on his backside of a 12 gauge shot pattern……and it will spell out the word “DECEIVER”…..

  7. My design is a red circle with bar, over the letters AGW. I propose to have it tattooed on the leather of my wallet, as that is where the impact of statist climate-controller ideas seems most often to hit, rather than on the environment.

  8. I would propose a tattoo (hate those damned ugly things) that shows an AGW True Believer getting a very short haircut (ala the French who collaborated with the Nazis during WWII) getting a very short haircut — with a guillotine!

  9. I believe that the tattoo should be Richard Glovers face with a giant phallus hanging down over it. Call me juvenille but the bloke is an utter douche!

  10. A tattoo? Okay, Yellow background, picture of planet earth. below the picture:
    “Earth”
    Ancient and Self- Renewing
    Gift to Humaninty
    Better yet put it on a yellow arm band and wear it, (like the Jews had to do), everyday from June 16,2011 through July 4, 2011. It will make a statement and have a greater impact because it will be visible.

  11. Is the contest open for international entries? We are also under siege here in America from the algore kool aid drinkers..

  12. Nullius in verba

    Or is the Royal Society’s motto copyrighted? They have abandoned it a bit in this matter. Or I guess adapted it to take nobody’s work for it, except those experts we support.

    The Royal Society’s motto ‘Nullius in verba’ roughly translates as ‘take nobody’s word for it’. It is an expression of the determination of Fellows to withstand the domination of authority and to verify all statements by an appeal to facts determined by experiment.

  13. LIKE ANOTHER RESPONDENT, I CAN’T DRAW WELL ENOUGH TO MAKE SENSE, BUT UNLIKE HIM I CANNOT SUBSCRIBE TO THE ALFRED E NEWMAN MOTTO “WHAT! ME WORRY?” INSTEAD I OFFER AUSTRALIA’S BEST-KNOWN AND BEST-LOVED COMIC CARTOON BY NOW LONG-FEAD GENIUS BLACK-AND-WHITE ARTIST. THE CARTOON SHOWS TWO RIGGERS WAY UP ON A BUILDING SITE; THEY HAVE BOTH SLIPPED FROM THE GIRDER THEY HAD BEEN WORKING ON. ONE IS HOLDING ON TO A HAMMER THAT HAS CAUGHT ONTO THE GIRDER, THE OTHER IS HOLDING ON TO THE FIRST RIGGER’S FEET. THE FIRST RIGGER’S TROUSERS HAVE FALLEN DOWN AROUND HIS ANKLES, AND HE IS SHOUTING TO HIS MATE BELOW -“DON’T LAUGH! THIS IS SERIOUS.” AND THAT’S TRUE FOR THIS CLIMATE LUNACY TOO BECAUSE NOT ONLY WILL IT COST UNIMAJINABLE AMOUNTS OF MONEY FOR ABSOLUTELY NO PURPOSE , BUT THERE IS EVERY POSSIBILITY THAT THE BLOODY THING WILL BE IRREVERSIBLE.
    SO MY HEART-FELT ADVICE IS -“DON’T LAUGH1 THIS IS SERIOUS1”.

  14. thank you Steve. You have a large following on the conservative forums in the US. Keep it up.

  15. How about an Earth dripping with snow and ice? I think it was vogue back in the early 70s.

  16. My tattoo would be my Blue Jay looking at the thermometer I hung in the tree where he would always roost outside my window which picture I took in February. It was -47 earlier in the morning. This was taken at 11:00am AFTER it had “warmed up.” If you respond with an email address, I will send the picture. Caption of the VERY cold Blue Jay is “Global Warming My Ass.” You would love it on your web site. I live in Canada so I don’t care about the prize money. You can use the picture anyway.

  17. Personally, I am up for Richard Glover’s challenge – but only on the basis that RG is prepared to submit to having a tattoo that is thoroughly relfective of his philosophy and scientific grasp. I rather think ‘CONGENITAL IDIOT’ would be about right. What think ye?

    And, for the record, I am NO blood relative (that I know of). Peter C Glover, UK (so can’t submit a visual entry)

  18. Great idea! Can’t wait to see the entries.
    BTW… I sent Richard an email asking where I line up for mine. I’ll be laughing my butt off in a decade or so as the Earth cools into another Little Ice Age.

    Like Bugs Bunny said, “Oh my, what a maroon.”

  19. We should not design a climate-change-“denier” tattoo. We should spend our money on finding a strategy to ensure that we will win the fight for public opinion.
    Our grand- and great-grandchildren shall live in a world that preserved fossil fuel use and nuclear power and all the other wonders of the industrial age. And a world that looks back at Al Gore and his ilk and at the environmental movement as one of the worst groups that ever appeared in history, possibly surpassing Stalin and Mao, or being very close to them in ranking. Children that wonder “How could they attempt to destroy a wonderful world (under the pretext of global warming), if they could just have enjoyed the wonderful world.” and get no answer and are happy it’s not them who have to fight such a movement. We did it for them. A world that looks back on us either as heroes who defended the good of the world, or as those who just happened to be immune to a mass manipulation and had to do a job.
    We should not invest money or time on a tatto design that serves for the eventuality, the world develops the other way.

  20. Rainer, I agree. Somebody has to stand on the wall and defend civilization against the warmist barbarians. Our professional soldiers, Lindzen et al, are being overwhelmed. Time for the citizens to arm themselves and take their places to defend their homes and their lives.

  21. My entry is an *invisible* tattoo. You can neither see it nor prove its existence, but you CAN insist that it’s really there if only the govt would fund the research to prove it.

  22. A flame within a broad stripe triangle just below the neckline: To symbolise global warming and what happened to the previous “untermenschen” who were forcibly tattooed

  23. Those guys are sure going to look funny trying to work the tattoo machine with their fingers all broken and their balls kicked up inside their bodies…..

  24. I’ve come up with an unambiguous, striking, and clever tattoo (or T-shirt or coffee cup) for us scorcher-scam scoffers. (It may not qualify for your contest, but if not I hope it will be endorsed by the site as a “winner” anyway.):

    A pair of upraised, chain-shackled hands decisively snapping a hockey stick (with its blade upturned at the right).
    It is based on the well-known (to many warmists) logo of the War Resisters League, in which the hands are snapping a rifle.
    A large, easily readable caption around the perimeter of the button would read, “Gore Resisters’ League.”

    In response to an earlier version of my suggestion that I posted on WUWT (which had a weaker slogan, a too-small typeface, and lacked the chain), a kindly blogger named S. Weasel created an image that came close to my vision, here: http://sweasel.com/archives/6403 (then hit page-down twice). I made a couple of comments on that thread about the design that document my claim to be its originator.

    I hope someone here will enhance his version in the way I’ve advocated—then I might take it to a tattoo artist and “get it on.” (He’d blow it up on a copier and use it as a tattoo-template.)

  25. This tattoo is what glover would have on his forehead. Multiple chicken littles each crossed out some starting to fade like tattoos do

  26. BTW, I would also prefer my winnings (there is no question mine is best (wink) ) go to charity too..

    but I do 3 signed copies of your best book. One for me and one for each of my brothers as “good stewards of the earth” awards (again, with a wink)

  27. I made up a fridge magnet / bumper sticker back in mid nineties with the earth as seen from the moon with the caption ” Save the Planet. Kill yourself.”

    Not origional. I got it from the Church of Euthanasia.

  28. My tattoo would be,

    Written on a turtles back, that is supporting a flat disc world,
    would be
    ” I DO NOT EXIST. ”

    Above the image / tattoo would be written,
    “The world ain’t flat.”

    And below the image / tattoo would be written,
    “0.04% CO2 does not control climate.”

  29. Hi – it’s not obvious how to enter (or is that just me?). Anyway I’ve emailed my entry to editor at … is that right?
