In Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything, Pat Michaels and Chip Knappenberger explain the real science and spin behind the headlines and come to a provocative conclusion: global warming is not hot—it’s lukewarm. Climate change is real, it is partially man-made, but it is clearer than ever that its impact has been exaggerated—with many predictions now being rendered implausible or impossible. This new paperback edition of the book is an expanded edition of last year’s ebook-only edition of Lukewarming, and includes updates in science and policy following the accords reached at the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris.

Seven years after the invasion of Afghanistan, coalition troops are no closer to winning the war against the Taliban. With security getting worse and a violent insurgency raging in western Pakistan, can the “war on terror’s” central front be won? Will a heavier combat presence, endorsed by President-elect Barack Obama, provide a solution or contribute to the widening problem? Please join us for an in-depth discussion on this critical and turbulent region, and what the next administration can do to save this deteriorating mission.
