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.

Its opponents like to portray school choice as a radical and untested gamble with our children’s futures. They might be surprised, however, to learn that school choice is an established reality in other countries. Chile, Sweden, and the Netherlands are among several countries that allow parents freedom to choose the kind of school that is best for their own children. In a new Cato book, scholars examine other countries’ experiences with school choice and draw out the critical lessons for America. Please join us for a discussion of the book with several of the contributors. Patrick Wolf, author of Educating Citizens: International Perspectives on Civic Values and School Choice, will offer additional insights and observations about school choice policies in other countries.
