You gotta read it!
In this post, Steyn Mannsplains a little bit about why he wrote the book:
(Featuring VERY STRANGE Jewish mother from Canada with her unique endorsement of said book, which is Steyn's "personal favorite quote on the book so far". He calls it the money quote, baby!!!)
UMMM.....IS IT HOT IN HERE?
(IS IT JUST ME? IS THAT A HOCKEY STICK IN THAT SAVILLE ROW BESPOKE SUIT OR ARE YOU "JUST" OH NEVERMIND AND SUCH... WELL MANN DID SAY THE EARTH IS HEATING UP OR SOMETHING AND WHATEVS. SORRY WHERE WERE WE?!??!)
"I wrote the book because climate mullah Michael E Mann attempted to sue me into silence, and it's necessary to let like-minded bullies know that that doesn't work. So my personal favorite quote on the book so far comes from Laura Rosen Cohen at Canada's Rebel Media in a piece on how fighting back works:
"So, let's get to Episode 3 of my trend - Mark Steyn's new book: A Disgrace to the Profession:The World's Scientists - In Their Own Words - OnMichael E Mann, His Hockey Stick And Their Damage To Science, Volume One.
"This is a must-read for many reasons."
"First of all, it is an entire book of pushback. An entire book."
It's not punching back twice as hard, or even thrice as hard."
It's punching back something like eleventy bazillion gazillion times as hard.
"It's probably the longest, funniest, most savvily organized and meticulous "screw you" in the history of Western literature. It's probably a new genre. I don't know of any precedent for a literary vehicle of this kind."
"Instead of waiting for the opportunity to flush more of his hard-earned money down the toilet, waiting for the sclerotic US justice system and Michael Mann to crush him into pulp, using their process as punishment, Steyn has gone on the offensive."
"It would have been easy to write a book in which I gleefully insult Michael E Mann's hockey stick and the rest of his science for 300 pages. But, given that his entire case rests on an appeal to authority (including false appeals to authority, like his fraudulent claim to be a Nobel Laureate), I decided to take him at his word and find out what other authorities - other scientists, bigshots with letters after their names, like PhD and FRS and whatnot - thought of his act."
(LOVE THIS PART!!)
"So, just to clarify that money quote, it's not just me saying "Screw you!" to Mann, but lots of other people, too."
