Some of the folks at one of my favorite sites on the internet, Skeptical Science, are going to make t-shirts and mugs broadcasting one portion of the scientific consensus on global warming, the fact that 97% of climate experts conclude global warming is happening and is caused by humans (while 2% are undecided and 1% are/is “skeptical”).
Here’s more from John Cook of Skeptical Science on the impetus for this:
A new survey by George Mason University shows only 15% of Americans correctly understand that the great majority of climate scientists think that global warming is caused mostly by human activities. This is not a happy statistic. Back when I posted an infographic on the scientific consensus on climate change, Skeptical Science reader veryred suggested putting the infographic on a T-shirt. I was immediately taken with the idea of climate geeks walking the streets with the 97% scientific consensus on their chest. Okay, not quite a fashion statement that will attract the opposite sex, it might even get you beaten up in the schoolyard, but certainly a creative way to get the climate message out there. So I’ve set up a Skeptical Science CafePress store and the scientific consensus on climate change is now available as a T-shirt.
Last I heard, John was looking to get help deciding on the best design. Take a look at option A & B below and head on over to skeptical science to chime in.
