Hillary Clinton is telling Arab- and Muslim-Americans how our government should not be persecuting members of their community while endorsing federal surveillance and related programs that do precisely that.
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.

The 2012 election may be among the closest in U.S. history. Many Americans are concerned about voter fraud, while experts wonder if the conduct of American elections has improved since 2000. In an effort to clean up our election laws, reduce fraud, and increase public confidence in the integrity of the voting system, many states have passed laws requiring a photo ID be shown at the polls and curbing the widespread use of absentee ballots, which can facilitate fraud. Critics argue that such measures seek to suppress voter turnout. Yet public confidence in the integrity of elections is at an all-time low. One poll found 62 percent of American voters thought that voter fraud was very common or somewhat common. Another survey found that 82 percent of Americans support photo ID laws. As Americans prepare again to elect a president, please join us for a lively discussion of this provocative new book on the integrity of the vote.
