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.

Imperial America: The Bush Assault on the World Order
Featuring the author John Newhouse, Senior Fellow, Center for Defense Information; with comments by Christopher Preble, Director of Foreign Policy Studies, Cato Institute; Anatol Lieven, Senior Associate, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
John Newhouse, who covered foreign policy for The New Yorker and served in two different administrations, argues that the Bush administration squandered a unique opportunity in the aftermath of 9/11, when a headline in Le Monde proclaimed, “We are all Americans.” Newhouse describes the ways in which America’s relationship with much of the world went wrong after the events of September 11, the moment when most nations were ready to accept U.S. leadership in a war against terrorism. He contends that the imperial path exemplified by the Iraq war being charted by the Bush administration will make the United States more vulnerable. Is America becoming an empire? And will empire make us safer?
