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.

Featuring Bruce Fein, Chairman, American Freedom Agenda; Andrew C. McCarthy, Director, Center for Law & Counterterrorism
Foundation for Defense of Democracies; and Moderated by Timothy Lynch,
Director, Project on Criminal Justice, Cato Institute.
The conservative authors of the new American Freedom Agenda charge that since 9/11 the Bush administration has chronically usurped legislative or judicial power and has repeatedly claimed that the president is the law. Others argue that the administration has responded appropriately to the nature of the threat. For 18 years, Andrew McCarthy was an assistant U.S. attorney in the Southern District of New York where he led the terrorism prosecution against Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman and 11 others in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and a plot to bomb New York City landmarks. Bruce Fein served as associate deputy attorney general under President Ronald Reagan. Please join us for a vigorous discussion of a crucial topic.
