😈 Watts Ships Out On Alaskan 🦖 Wingnut Cruise With 🐉 Steyn,  🦕McIntyre and  🦕 McKittrick

Yesterday, Anthony Watts announced he was taking a week-long cruise at the invitation of Mark Steyn, a man known probably best known for his Islamophobia, and occasionally filling in as a guest host for both 👹 Rush Limbaugh and 👹 Tucker Carlson. (Apparently Steyn’s who you call when you need a pinch-hater.)

As Watts put it, being given a free ride on Steyn’s week-long Alaskan cruise is “one of the few perks I get as a climate skeptic.”. Along with him will be Steve McIntyre and Ross McKittrick. The three will appear on a climate panel during the cruise, and then sign books with the lucky ducks on board.

Like Watts, McIntyre and McKittrick are hardly relevant in the climate conversation these days. McIntyre is a former mining executive turned blogger who mostly faded into obscurity after getting called out for manufacturing Climategate quotes and making elementary errors in attacking climate scientists, like confusing annual and monthly data.

McKittrick, to his credit, didn’t let making a fool out of himself by mixing up radians and degrees in his haste to attack the climate consensus slow down his output of misleading and cherry-picked denial pseudoscience.

Steyn, meanwhile, is not exactly an up-and-comer. The conservative CRTV (now BlazeTV) canceled his show after just two months in 2017 (although  the lawsuit over it seems to be carrying on, far outlasting the show itself). His former employees accused him of being verbally abusive, wasteful with the company credit card, unrehearsed and ill-prepared, and generally “not interested in help with the creation of his show,” which he allegedly “intentionally sabotaged.” 

Oh, also, Dr. Michael Mann is suing him for defamation. Even those who aren’t fans of Mann’s approach consider Steyn’s behavior “disastrous,” describing his moves as “antics” and “a very risky gambit.” And one example of this? Steyn’s chosen to defend himself. Of course, as the old saying goes, he who represents himself has a fool for a client.

Between the four of them, and everyone else who signed up for a Steyn cruise, it’s a regular Ship of Fools.
