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.

U.S. Institute for Peace; moderated by Justin Logan, Associate Director of Foreign Policy Studies, Cato Institute.
The week of April 11, Sudan held its first open election in 24 years amid widespread legitimacy concerns, an indictment from the International Criminal Court, and a last-minute boycott by leading opposition parties. Although the parties participating have declared they will honor the results, the United States, the European Union, and other observers have stated that the elections failed to meet international standards. Even so, some commentators believe the elections may represent an important turning point in Africa’s largest nation. What do the elections mean for Sudan’s future? Could the elections help create the conditions for a new era of peace in that war-ravaged country? Finally, what do the elections mean for U.S. foreign policy? Please join our panel for a lively discussion of these questions.
