This week The New Criterion posted Ben Weingarten's in-depth interview with Steyn on Big Climate and its ever more naked hostility to free speech and intellectual inquiry. Here's their exchange on the similarities between the Islamic supremacists and the climate mullahs:
If you enjoyed that, you can watch the full Steyn/Weingarten interview here.
Speaking of the climate mullahs, Christian Thalacker, "environmental journalist" and one of hockey-stick inventor Michael E Mann's few remaining Mann-boys, attempted this week to revive Mann's fraudulent claim to be a Nobel Prize winner by posting Mann's photocopy of an actual Nobel Prize certificate. Mark linked to the Director of the Nobel Institute declaring "Michael Mann has never been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize", and the spokesperson of the Nobel Committee saying "He has never won the Nobel Prize", and even audio of the latter, but the last devoted Mann-boy on earth was determined to go down with his master's melting ice-floe.
(For more on the subject of the most notorious scientific graph of the 21st century, see Steyn's book on the subject.)
~In the US presidential race, it has been a long drawn-out contest on both the Democrat and Republican sides. But Tuesday's primaries made this November's match-up all but certain (with due allowance for an Indiana surprise). Mark considered the state of play here, and with Toronto's Number One morning man John Oakley on AM640 - where he also discussed the reaction of Justin Trudeau, Captain Quantum, to the beheading of a Canadian citizen by jihadist barbarians. You can hear the full Steyn/Oakley interview here.
~Listeners continue to enjoy Steyn's new cat album Feline Groovy: Songs for Swingin' Cats, dedicated to his own beloved cat Marvin, and starring him on the cover. The CD has a four-and-a-half star rating over at iTunes and a lot of five-star reviews at Amazon. Among the satisfied customers is Jim Grichar of Woodstock, Virginia:
I just received my copy of "Feline Groovy" yesterday - It was superb!
My only question is "What gin does Marvin prefer in his martini and
do you prefer the same?"
I regret to say that Marvin's favorite gin is Tanqueray's Old Tom.
If you buy only one feline concept album this year, make it Feline Groovy.
~As mentioned above, Steyn's book The [Un]documented Mark Steyn is out now in audio format - and narrated by Mark himself! It's a Top Five bestseller on the political humor hit parade, so, if you need some companionship for a long car journey, we hope you'll consider taking some Steynian apocalyptic wit along for the ride.
