Announcing a climate bumper sticker contest!

Ask me how I'm warming the planet bumpersticker

It's time to sharpen your pencils, cudgel your brains, and consult your muse: NCSE is running a bumper sticker contest! This is your chance to help to spread the word about climate change education. Your brilliant idea could end up on the tail end of thousands of (carbon-dioxide-emitting) cars. Your climate change-themed bumper sticker can be funny, fierce, fiery — whatever, as long as it's good. Full details of the contest, and a list of the luscious prizes on offer, are available on NCSE's website. The contest ends on May 31, 2015.
