On Saturday afternoon, I joined my favorite piano-playing imam Andrew Lawton coast to coast on Canada's Roy Green Show to discuss my new book "A Disgrace to the Profession": The World's Scientists - in their Own Words - on Michael E Mann, his Hockey Stick, and their Damage to Science: Volume One.
As usual with Andrew, it was a jolly conversation. And, if you've always wondered about the identity of the most influential Canadian on the planet, it's not Justin Trudeau or Céline Dion, but instead one magic tree in the Gaspé Peninsula that Michael E Mann believes, all by itself, can divine the temperature of the entire Northern Hemisphere, from Sweden to Slovenia to Shanghai.

Is there any writer more apt, more prosaic or more entertaining? There are cartoons from Josh too.
Josh's illustrations of Michael E Mann are proving a very popular feature of "A Disgrace To The Profession". We're shipping copies (personally autographed by yours truly) right now as an exclusive to SteynOnline readers. But if you can wait a few days it'll be available at Amazon in both Kindle and print, where it's doing so well it's already attracting bestseller-sized discounts. In Canada it's bubbling under the Top 250 - which isn't bad for a science book. It's Number One on the Climatology Hit Parade at Amazon US, and also Number One on the Scientists' hit list in the United Kingdom - and Down Under, too.
~There are other ways to support Mark's pushback against Big Climate, if you're so inclined:
You can buy a gift certificate starting at $25 (and soaring way up from there), for yourself or your friends and family. The gift certificates have no expiration date, so if, in ten years' time, your favorite nephew has a sudden burning desire for $100 worth of Mark's disco CD, it'll still be valid. On the other hand, if you want to buy a certificate and sit on it until Mark wins the case, that works, too.
The gift certificates are available online here. Alternatively, US and Canadian customers can make a telephone purchase by calling (866) 799-4500 toll free from 8am to 3pm Eastern time on weekdays.
