There is no evidence here that Medicaid coverage leads to reductions in utilization in other dimensions. In fact, Medicaid coverage makes people more likely to visit the Emergency Department, and increases their number of visits relative to their baseline.
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.

A Harsh Climate for Trade: How Climate Change Proposals Threaten Global Commerce
Featuring Sallie James, Trade Policy Analyst, Cato Institute; Gary Hufbauer, Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics; and Clayton Yeutter, Senior Advisor, Hogan and Hartson LLP and former United States Trade Representative.
As the Senate prepares to consider a climate change bill, a new study from the Cato Institute lays out some of the dangers in trade provisions ostensibly designed to “level the carbon playing field” between countries that sign carbon-limiting agreements and those that do not. Using the latest data and thinking on trade law, Sallie James shows how linking tariffs to greenhouse gas emissions would be harmful to the U.S. economy and counterproductive for achieving climate change objectives. Gary Hufbauer and Clayton Yeutter will also present their views on the intersection between climate change and trade policy.
