I believe

More inspiration via Trenberth and Willis from Josh, now available for an automobile near you.

The other iterations aren’t too shabby either:

  1. Great bumper sticker, but most who see it will probably misinterpret it. Which may be good, as the alarmists seem more likely to key your car.
    (ok, that was mean…)

  2. Actually, I do believe in “climate change” — the natural kind — and don’t believe climate “science” will change much; I expect CAGW proponents to ride their gravy train to the end of the line.
    CAGW: The luminiferous ether of the 21st Century.

  3. I gaurantee you if the pot smoking Gaia lovers in my area actually figure out what that bumper sticker says, they’ll key your car or burn it to the ground.

  4. Can I get a translation for those of us who didn’t grow up with our hand-written book reports being hand-corrected? It seems like someone is adding science in between climate change, and I am humiliated to admit I don’t see the humor there. Perhaps I’m just low on sleep, it happens.

  5. Hmm, I think I gotta get one. Or several.
    Makes me wish I had a Prius to put it on.
    Jeremy – a staple in grafitti is to take a statement and modify it to mean something else. In this case, “I believe in Climate Change,” which could be grafitti itself, and which has a double meaning expressing sarcasm about the neo-religion of AGW worship, is “improved” to “I believe in Climate Science Change.” E.g. back to an era when science was more open and the scientific method regarded with respect. A lot of institutions need changing – GISS, UEA, NSDC, NCAR….
    Is it too late to give one as a thank you gift to Dr T after his speech at the AMS meeting?

    Much closer to phlogiston !

  7. It’s simple and requires a double-take – not bad. I have a sense that a simple revision could make it much better, but I can’t put my finger on why yet.
    I did meet someone with a Prius and “McCain/Palin” bumper stickers who had been keyed twice – and I don’t even live in a liberal stronghold.
    I don’t do extra stickers on cars as a rule anyway, and I’m not sure if I want to know if any of my liberal cow-orkers are that far out.

  8. Here in the emerald city, a Hummer on the street may be vandalized overnight. I would prefer something more blunt, but I’d do the T shirt so they’d have to face me to try anything.

  9. Click on my handle above and you’ll see some other Climate Realist stickers, hats, and T-shirts, including (my favorite): “Cooking the Books, Not the Planet—Turn Up the Heat on Climate Alarmists.”
    Not my products, but created by folks I know.

    Somehow that is not at all obvious, and it still doesn’t seem funny. Perhaps it’s the abstract nature of the argument here?
    Wouldn’t it be more straightforward and potentially effective if it were perhaps that alien flying saucer picture that has the caption “I want to believe” and sub-caption it “in CAGW”, and replaced the flying saucer with perhaps an image of the hockey stick? Or maybe Manns image with his tree section? Maybe some bristlecone pines? Perhaps just show a cartoon image of Pachauri and say “I want to believe in voodoo science!”… just some thoughts.

  11. Bumpers? bumpers? I thought you had fenders over there.
    Just as we don’t have automobiles here but motor cars you know.
    Kindest Regards

  12. Does cafepress do haiku? If so, I donate these gratis in the unlikely event they may be fundraisingly useful.
    Anthropogenic
    Catastrophic heat
    Polar bears deny
    Marxism debunked
    Desperate adherents seek
    Aha! Global Warming
    Blower of hot air
    So righteously indignant
    Climate con artist

    No, what we call a bumper Americans also call a bumper. What they call a fender we call a wing (I think it has something to do with parking abilities ;>p).

  14. I gotta get me one of them T-shirts and bumper stickers!!! Australian (English) to American translation, via Babel fish…
    Bumper = Bumper
    Wing = Fender
    Bulkhead = Firewall
    Shock absorber = Spring
    Damper = Shock absorber
    Headers = Extractors
    Blower = Turbo
    Corner = No word for corner exists in American automotive history
    Maybe next month, the Australian NSW RTA and compulsory insurance companies are about to extract the best part of AU$1k, to keep my car on the road.
