Mark Steyn skewers junk social science around environmentalism

From Mark Steyn at his site:

Last night Mark kept his regular Thursday date on “Tucker Carlson Tonight”. The subject was a new study on whether climate science and environmentalism have such a feminine image that insecure men would rather destroy the planet than be associated with it. More.

Reality check: Social science today mainly provides “science” cover for intrusive and destructive government policies.

The fact that social science journals are frequent victims of hoaxes actually helps them. That way, hard sciences can play the game of sometimes pretending that the social scientists are real scientists – but disowning them when they gets too obviously bonkers.

Only the rest of us are losers.
