Does global warming pose a serious threat?

Global climate change is an immensely complex issue involving myriad scientific disciplines, economic theories, and political ideologies. Accordingly, how the United States addresses global warming will have a profound impact on the world’s ecology and economy. The Manhattan Institute believes that good science and common sense is where a reasonable conversation needs to begin. For this reason, we are pleased to host a conversation between two of the finest scientific minds on the issue. They promise to deliver a stimulating discussion distinguished by serious consideration of the facts.
