Global Warming and Shrinking Manhood

by Mark Steyn

Readers have asked me for an update on climate scientist Michael Mann’s threatened lawsuit against National Review for mocking his hockey stick.

I don’t really have anything new to report on that front, but I heard Rush mention this story the other day — CBS News, in an alarming story headlined “Male Genitalia Shrinking,” is reporting that global warming may be responsible for a 10 percent reduction in male private parts over the last 50 years. According to this alleged Italian study:

Air pollution has been shown to ‘negatively impact penis size’.

So no hockey stick there.

We may have to call these Italian scientists as expert witnesses.
