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.

First Among Equals: The Supreme Court in American Life
Featuring the author, Kenneth W. Starr; with comments by James L. Swanson, Editor in Chief, Cato Supreme Court Review.
What is the proper role of the Supreme Court in American life? Kenneth W. Starr—former law clerk to the chief justice of the United States, Justice Department official, federal appeals court judge, solicitor general, independent counsel, and now appellate lawyer—answers that question in his provocative new book. In chapters on the First Amendment, religion, privacy, affirmative action, voting rights, and criminal justice, Judge Starr argues that ours is a government of limited powers and that the Supreme Court has, since the New Deal, strayed from first principles. Starr offers pithy character and jurisprudential sketches of the justices and pinpoints decisive moments in the Court’s history, including the perversion of the Commerce Clause in the 1930s; the descent of law into politics; and, more positively, the Rehnquist Court’s restoration of federalism. Join us for a wide-ranging discussion of the Court and the Constitution.
