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 Bruce Reed, President, Democratic Leadership Council; Ron Suskind, Author, The Price of Loyalty: George W. Bush, the White House and the Education of Paul O’Neill; and David Frum, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute and Author, The Right Man: The Surprise Presidency of George W. Bush.
The Bush White House believes that “good policies make for good politics.” But critics like John DiIulio and Paul O’Neill complain that the administration has sacrificed solid policy analysis on the altar of political expediency. They cite such policies as tariffs on steel, the Medicare drug benefit, and runaway federal spending as examples of politics undermining good policy. Have the hacks routed the wonks in the Bush administration? Please join us.
