This week Mark launched a new book Climate Change: The Facts, featuring not only Steyn but some of the most eminent scientists and writers analyzing the state of the global-warming debate after the total failure of the climate models. The book is available in Kindle at Amazon outlets worldwide, as well as in Kobo and in Nook at Barnes & Noble. It's a great way to support Mark's pushback against the climate alarmists.
As to the rest of the news, here's how the last seven days looked to Steyn:
The week began with - what else? - ISIS taking over the Pentagon's social media accounts: "Allahu Hackbar!"
~Fraudulent Nobel Laureate Michael E Mann's global-warming "hockey sticks" are getting ever more desperate. On Tuesday, Mark noted the strange similarity between the latest version and his own prescient criticism of it 14 years ago. If you're as excited about the upcoming Mann vs Steyn trial of the century as Mark is, we hope you'll consider partaking of our exclusive range of DC Superior Court trial merchandise, or an autographed copy of Mark's free-speech book, or our SteynOnline gift certificates. Proceeds go to support his campaign against the climate mullahs.
~On Wednesday, as the first post-slaughter Charlie Hebdo hit French newsstands, Mark looked at all the supporters and marchers, and wondered: "Where's the lead in the pencil?"
~On Thursday, the great songwriter Ervin Drake died at the age of 95, just a few days after Mark selected his classic ballad "It Was A Very Good Year" as our very first Sinatra Song of the Century. Our series continued with Sinatra song #2 - "The Song Is You" - and #3 - "Home On The Range".
~On Friday, a week after the murder of another four Paris Jews, Steyn wondered if Europe is about to be Judenrein. Fortunately, the United States Government is on top of things: John Kerry flew in James Taylor to sing "You've Got A Friend" to France, and Mark hailed the dawn of clapped-out boomer-pop diplomacy.
In the wake of the Academy Award nominations, he ended the week with an Oscar nominee from 20 years ago, The Madness Of King George.
Mark will be live in Toronto on January 28th, in conversation with Heather Reisman at Indigo's flagship bookstore at Bay and Bloor. He'll be talking about and autographing his new book. Admission is free, but first come, first served. For more details on the event, see here.
A new week at SteynOnline begins tonight with our Song of the Week.
