I intent to update my review when I have finished the book.
Mel Gerst
After reading this book I became very sad because I feel that you'd have to be a little foolish to believe this stuff but I know that some people will.
Health Nut
Inhofe is not an authority on the climate or science of any kind.

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.'"

4 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Clear to Take Off on September 4, 2014
Format: Hardcover
Utterly despicable, ignorant, the 'senator' should be ashamed, held on charges for crimes against humanity and crimes against the planet. Just ask any Katrina, Sandy victim, Texas or California farmer or family suffering from 80% exceptional drought with no end in sight for the next 30 years and beyond. The 'senator' is an hypocrite, cynical fella, incapable of any love for his fellow man, of giving thanks to, or caring for the planet that keeps him alive.

The 'book' is a sewer of foul lies, falsehoods, misrepresentations and foul propaganda from beginning to end. Not worth the trees it is printed on, trees that gave oxygen to his lungs, and life to countless beings including his own.

The 'senator' has not done a single bit of research all his life other than searching for the ad section in the newspaper, nor published in any reputable peer reviewed scientific journal, neither have any of the 'scientists' he quotes. Where are the publications in Nature, Science, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, Nobel Prizes in Chemistry of Physics ? None. Zero. Nada. Absolutely nothing. Oldest trick in the bully book: call the others a hoax so that the bully's hoax goes unnoticed. This 'book' is a hoax.

I read the reviews before buying this book and I must admit all those 1 star reviews almost prevented me from reading it. What a mistake that would have been. This is an excellent, well researched book. If you want a great introduction to the book before you buy it google Senator Inhofe's July 28th 2003 speech in the Senate. As for the reviews.....I recommend only paying attention to the one's whose authors actually bought the book. Probably a good idea for all books.
