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 Marian Tupy, Assistant Director, Project on Global Economic Liberty, Cato Institute; Julius Coles,
President, Africare; and Robert Guest,
Washington Correspondent, The Economist.
As trade liberalization talks get under way in Hong Kong, many of the world’s media outlets continue to focus on protectionism in the developed world and its negative effect on poor countries. But trade liberalization in rich countries as a cure for world poverty is often overemphasized. Based on his new study, Marian Tupy will demonstrate that the main causes of African impoverishment are internal; namely, political instability, high trade tariffs, and a general lack of economic freedom. Please join our distinguished panel to hear suggestions on policies that Africa should adopt to increase trade and growth.
