Customer Reviews

Of course it's not bad guy/good guy: Is it evil to drive a hummer?
Bill Hurley
That really is a key point about global climate change--what steps should, or should not be taken by governments.
Dave Smth
And Senator Inhofe is one of the few really honest politicians to boot.

Format: Hardcover
The book gets off to rather an unfortunate start on the cover with the absurd contention that thousands of scientists working independently over decades, publishing countless papers in peer reviewed journals, have somehow managed to coordinate, or at least are complicit in constructing and perpetuating a "hoax". The enormity of that accusation is staggering in its implications and the lack of understanding of science and the scientific process and more importantly perhaps, the scientific community. However, one can reasonably assume that it is intentional and is basically intended to misinform. mislead, and support a political agenda rather than contribute to the global warming discussion. The problem I see with this type of book--and the potential harm it does--is that many readers don't have the background and/or have not done enough reading to really understand the science being discussed and, therefore, cannot assess its validity. Much of what the author says about climate science is simply incorrect and easily verified as such. Probably the reason that this book has such a pronounced bimodal distribution of reviews (i.e. either 1 star or 5 stars) is that readers are equally divided among those with and without some science education. The author's discussion of regulation and government policy is where his real expertise lies and worthy of reading & considering. That really is a key point about global climate change--what steps should, or should not be taken by governments. Even in this discussion, there are several (better) books available that provide some objective analysis of costs and efficacy of various proposals, rather than political campaigning for a particular agenda.Read more ›

The allegations Senator James Inhofe makes in The Greatest Hoax are unlike any since Senator Joseph McCarthy claimed to have documented evidence that Communist agents were overrunning our government. This time, liberals at the UN are corrupting science to scare us into accepting global governance, huge tax increases, and severe limits on our way of life.

When a U.S. Senator makes such an extraordinary claim, history teaches us to check the evidence. Inhofe's Green Scare could be as fake as McCarthy's Red Scare. If Inhofe is a second McCarthy, we will catch him fabricating evidence, manipulating data, and twisting truth.

We can verify Inhofe's truthfulness using Al Gore's marvelous invention, the Internet. Take, for example, Inhofe's argument that global warming is inconsistent with the "widespread global cooling scare" in the 1970's. He quotes the National Science Board as saying in 1972 that "judging from the record of the past interglacial ages, the present time of high temperatures should be drawing to an end...leading into the next glacial age." Not quite. Going to the source we find what they wrote was, "leading into the next glacial age some 20,000 years from now." We find talk of the cooling effects of air pollution and the warming effects of carbon dioxide, but no imminent ice age.

Inhofe's assertion that the "hockey stick" temperature reconstruction was rebuked in a journal holds up no better. He writes:
"Three geophysicists from the University of Utah, in the April 7, 2004, edition of Geophysical Research Letters, concluded that Mann's methods used to create his temperature reconstruction were deeply flawed. ... As they wrote, Mann's results are ... 'just bad science.'"

Format: Hardcover
Checked this out of the library because I wanted to be open-minded and see what this guy -- who I'd always regarded as a blowhard -- had to say. What I learned: 1) He's MUCH WORSE than a blowhard; and (2) It is not "open-minded" to seriously consider the opinions of someone like Inhofe, who is completely closed-minded; it's just an exercise in letting a deluded nincompoop get inside your head and rattle his chains up there for a while. And Senator Inhofe is definitely not someone you want in your head, because he's not just an incompetent jackass, he's a mean sumb*tch. Inhofe actually suffers from a form of egomania that is all-too common in Washington: He sees only what he wants to see, hears only what he wants to hear, believes only what he wants to believe. The best example of this in the book is when he quotes a Jon Stewart segment that, in reality, completely eviscerates him . . . but, see, he only quotes the first half of it -- which is to say, the set-up -- so that, if you didn't know better, you'd think Jon Stewart was praising him to the skies! His attacks on Dr. Michael Mann and the "hockey stick" (a discovery which has been confirmed by literally more than TWO DOZEN research groups, including long-time global warming skeptic Richard Muller) leaves out the enormous number of bloopers Inhofe himself has made over the years while trying to do battle with people who are far, far smarter than he. For instance, he was a longtime champion of the famous Soon & Baliunas paper, which proved to be such a piece of s***, the publisher admitted it should never have seen the light of day, but, still, the Journal's editor-in-chief and, indeed, half-the-editorial board, resigned, because the publisher didn't go far enough.Read more ›
