Happy Earth Day! I've been out and about promoting the official Earth Day release of the new paperback Climate Change: The Facts. I started Tuesday with Bill Bennett, and then joined Brian Lilley, late of Canada's Sun News, on his brand new Blazecast for Glenn Beck's Blaze network. Also on Brian's guest list was Phelim McAleer, whose film Not Evil But Wrong was one of the first big pushbacks against the Gore machine's Inconvenient Truth and who very kindly kindly turned up to support me in the most recent Michael E Mann court date in DC. (Phelim's latest projects are on Ferguson, Mo, and mass murderer Kermit Gosnell.)
To hear Brian, me and Phelim, simply click below:
As Brian and I noted, Earth Day is the day when President Obama, Secretary Kerry and the rest of the gang demonstrate their commitment to saving the planet by flying in to plant a tree somewhere. And say what you like but, when you're looking for fellows who know how to dig a huge hole, Obama and Kerry are pretty much at the top of the list. (I gather Hillary misunderstood the brief slightly, and, after digging the hole, threw 30,000 emails down there.)
As I mentioned to Brian, my township in New Hampshire is 95 per cent forested, but you can never have too many trees, so on Earth Day I always like to plant a couple more, get the tree cover round here up to 97, 98 per cent, whatever it takes to send climate change into reverse. Of course, it's always a big pain in the neck the morning after Earth Day, when the holiday's over, and it's time to take down the trees. So these days I generally just plant artificial trees with the nice silvery tinselly branches, and then you can just take them down and put 'em in the attic till next year's Earth Day. Just a helpful ecological tip from yours truly.
~Meanwhile, Bill Nye the soi-disant Science Guy will be spending Earth Day bigging up his carbon footprint on Air Force One.
~On the radio, I'll be starting Earth Day proper on Wednesday morning live with notorious denier Brian Sussman on KSFO in San Francisco just after 7am Pacific. At 10.30am Eastern I'll be with Michael Graham in Atlanta and then at 1pm Joyce Kaufman in Florida. Full details in our On The Air box at top right.
As for Climate Change: The Facts, it features me and and some of the world's most eminent scientists and sharpest commentators on the science, the policies and the politics of "global warming". Personally autographed copies of the book are available from the Steyn store, but if you can't wait that long you can get it in eBook format via Kindle, Nook or Kobo, and be reading it in the next 90 seconds.
