It’s Hug a Climate Scientist Day!

Hey Science fans! Today is international Hug a Climate Scientist Day. Time to get your low carbon hugging pants on!

Here at Crikey, we are not ashamed to say we totally dig Climate Scientists and are quite upset that people want to threaten and frighten them (or anyone else ever of course).

That is why we launched a pretend campaign to encourage people to Hug A Climate Scientist. And then like all First Dog on the Moon’s ideas it was so good we needed to make it reality.

Accordingly, you should now send us actual photos of you hugging a real Climate Scientist or if you are one, you being hugged. If you don’t have access to a Climate Scientist (they are all hiding) a photo of you clinging desperately to a fellow warmenist and/or pet will do just fine. We will send some low carbon ¬†Cooty Notes* to the best ones. Hop to it! Send them to boss@crikey.com.au with “hugging a climate scientist’ in the subject line.

*Have no idea if Cooty Notes are low carbon at all.

  1. Will a Christian Scientist do?

  2. How about a Scientologist? They have the word science in the name so they must be scientists!

  3. John64 – that would involve taking a survey, and touching their voltmeter thingy. Eugh.

  4. Firsty, perhaps there should be some exclusions to this campaign. If you were a climate scientist would you want Mr Rabbott to go the grab?

  5. zut: that depends on whether one is a ‘”carroted” climate scientist or (my favourite) vote female.

  6. Hear hear First Dog, the jihadist of the pen is of higher virtue than the jihadist of the sword.

    Ants colony, if only human learn from them to resolve future population problem. Ants are the most populated creature in this world. Their colony or nest is ingeniously built with natural air-conditioning and farming inside.

    Bio mimicking that’s the way to go. If only the journos could learn from First Dog and do great service to our nation.
