When it comes to global warming, most people think there are two camps, “alarmist” and “denier” being their respective pejoratives. Either you acknowledge the existence of manmade climate change and consider it a dire global threat, or you deny it exists at all. But there’s a third group: the “lukewarmers.”

In Lukewarming: The New Climate Science that Changes Everything, Cato scholars 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. While that may not sound earth-shattering, it in fact changes everything.

Climate change is real and it is partially man-made, but it is clearer than ever that its impact has been exaggerated. Far more warming has been forecast than will occur, with many of the headline-grabbing predictions now being rendered implausible or impossible.

This fresh analysis will be of interest to those looking for an introduction to the climate debate as well as to veterans seeking the freshest science.
