TUCKER CARLSON (HOST): Is this the science that you grew up with? 

MARK STEYN (GUEST): Well, I confess I was at first skeptical. If I understand this thesis, my insecurities about my masculinity are causing rising sea levels in the Maldives. And at first I didn't really buy that. But as I think about it, I think in fact it's actually one of the least visible climate science theses of recent years. So I'm kind of on board with where they are going on this. 

CARLSON:  How did we wind up with a country in which feminists do science? I mean, isn't that - we're sort of bound to get a study like this, right? 

STEYN:  I think, in fact, it's very difficult to tell with social science as with climate science whether or not it's an ingenious parody. It's almost impossible to tell in fact. But I think this goes back to -- I think the important point here is toxic masculinity. They're saying that they did a survey here, this is the kind of hard core science behind it, in which they gave someone a Walmart gift card and it was pink and had lots of flowery patents on it. So it looked a bit girlie, looked a bit sissy, looked a bit milk toast panty waist. So the guy given this gift card went out and bought a lot of very macho masculine things that melt the polar ice caps. Whereas if you give him something - he's so impressionable this toxicly masculine male - that if you give him a masculine type card, he just thinks oh that's really nice and he goes out and he buys a Sierra Club tote bag and saves the planet. This is the kind of social science that the higher education institutions of America are spending a fortune investigating.
