Author Meets Readers invites Carleton students and the community to join an informal discussion on new books published by members of the Carleton University Faculty of Public Affairs.

About the Author: Michael Hart is a Professor Emeritus and the former Simon Reisman Chair in Trade Policy at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs (NPSIA).

About the Book: "Hubris: the Troubling Science, Economics and Politics of Climate Change" concludes that every solution put forward by the UN and activists poses more problems than might ever emerge from the marginal human impact on natural climate change. Rather than mitigation, governments should focus on adaptation. As is, climate change discussions have become captive of a utopian agenda that is using climate change as a stalking horse to drive alarm in the hope that it will convince governments to act.

About the Panel: Michael Hart will be joined by Ian Clark, Professor at the University of Ottawa, Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences and Mark Cameron, Executive Director of Canadians for Clean Prosperity.
