Americans are over-regulated and over-taxed. When regulation escalates, the result is an increase in regulators. In other words, bigger government is required to enforce the greater degree of regulation. Bigger government means bigger budgets and higher taxes. More simply doesn't mean better. A perfect example is the entire global warming, climate-change issue, which is an effort to dramatically and hugely increase regulation of each of our lives and business, and to raise our cost of living and taxes. In The Greatest Hoax, Senator James Inhofe will reveal the reasons behind those perpetuating the Hoax of global warming, who is benefiting from the general acceptance of the Hoax and why the premise statements are blatantly and categorically false.

The senator's deliberate attempt to misinform the public is instructional if only to reveal how oil-funded legislators have successfully blocked all hope for a common sense climate bill.

Inhofe is amazingly able to thread together paranoid delusions into a fairly consistent story. It's scary to think he is a senator! This is a good read for those wishing insights into the mind of a delusional near psychopath. But if your not into the study of pathology you will just find a long boring list of idiotic and false statements.

This guy refuses to believe the overwhelming evidence on this subject. He has no business being published, or elected.

While one might enjoy reading the opinions of a right-wing Republican in order to get a good laugh, his point of view is clearly based on partisan politics and not on climate science.  In a larger context, the argument for de-regulation espoused and set in motion by the Reagan administration, is always a corner stone for the Right and is the philosophy that justifies unfettered commercialism and corporatization, which is where we are now in the West and especially in the U.S.  If we were to follow the path and philosophy of the market-driven among us, we'd still be in the stone age.  My favorite comparison in this regard is the lamp lighter at the invention of electric lights.  We would argue that we couldn't pursue this "crazy" notion of electricity! I mean, what would become of jobs?  Well, what became and will become is that MORE jobs are created in new technologies--technologies that will clean up our messes and create solutions to our pollution problems. On a note about partisanship (which is the driver to these type of arguments), it seems to me that upon observation, Liberals are the ones who by nature will cooperate, have a long view, a global perspective, and a heart for the health  of the planet and all the living creatures on it.  The political conservatives are the more intransigent and short-sighted who have (for the most part) sold out to corporate interests.  This has led to our polluted soil, water, air, and atmosphere due to those individuals who are supported by the various big corporations (oil, pharma, gun lobby, military).   Anyone who doesn't see that our society is in trouble, that the middle class has shrunk to a pitiful percentage of the whole, and the disparity between the wealthy and the poor, is at a level not seen since the first recorded Gilded Age in modern times, doesn't understand history and doesn't care about the real suffering of people (psychopaths of a sort).  Mr. Inhofe is a member of the latter group or at the very least is a spokesperson who is incapable of connecting the proverbial dots), using the same familiar tropes outlined herein.  To use a point  of argument often used by the Right (that being the Bible)... remember how Noah was received when he spoke of the flood or was observed building his Ark?  Yes, well, according to text, actual geologic finds (observable science), who was right?   So, if we are not THE cause of climate change, could we at least agree that we aren't helping the health of our world and by extension our very existence?  Unfortunately and apparently not.   Thankfully, and apparently, the growing aggregate opinion is that we ARE the root cause.

The real hoax in this book is that building a more energy-efficient economy would bring real economic gains regardless of global climate change's impact. Overall, the author is delusional, so find a better book to read.

Don't even stock this book in your Science Fiction section; it ignores 97% of climate scientists and the in-your-face evidence of the extreme weather we've been experiencing in recent years. Surely Barnes & Noble, a fine bookseller, isn't desperate enough to sell trash.

Wow! This man thinks he knows more than most of the world's scientists. Scary that so many people will believe this stupid senator over all the highly educated scientist out there. I need to find out what publisher puts out this kind of garbage.

How does a do-nothing senator know anything about science?

Everyone is entitled to their opinion...but not there own facts...This guy is a dangerous right-wing nut.

It is completely unscientific and obviously intended to advocate businesses that benefit from destroying nature. Such books are the ones that threaten your future!

Nothing more than the rantings of a reactionary nut. It breaks my heart that trees were killed to produce this garbage.

I can't believe the monumental ignorance of Senator Inhofe. His views are so far from scientific, so far from the mainstream, that he must also believe the world is flat and that he will fall off the edge if he sails too far out to sea. My recommendation: Spend your time reading almost anything other than this book. If you want some science fiction, let me recommend Orson Scott Card.

Well one thing is certain, this book is for people who liked Harry Potter but thought it had too much science in it. Since when was truth, data, and statistics considered a "hoax"? Don't buy this, it will save you brain cells not to read it.

this book is full of Scientific inaccuracies. there is little to it other than the uninformed beliefs of a politician wanting to push the agenda of his contributors

Complete nonsense or non science written by a paid shill for the oil companies. He can't possibly be that stupid, but he can be that corrupt.

It's terrifying that someone with as little sense of reality as Sen. Inhofe has can get a book published, let alone be elected to the Senate. He has the ability to block governmental actions to help mitigate climate change, and we can't stop him from doing that, but we can discourage people from buying his book. It's sad that B&N is willing to stock this thing.

I was intrigued by the negative reviews and wondered if they were written by people who still believe in anthropogenic climate change. The book chronicles the Senator’s efforts from his point of view and one may not enjoy that perspective, but I enjoyed reading it. It answered lots of questions and made some connections that had not occurred to me. I always wondered why proponents of climate change are primarily liberals while most skeptics are conservatives. This book sheds some light on why the argument over climate change shakes out over political philosophy. You might not like this book if you are a believer in anthropogenic climate, but if you are skeptical or undecided this is a worthwhile book.

A humble suggestion to producers/Al gore: Solar storm scare threat will bee even scarier than green house gas emission: Why did Mr. Al gore stop with Atmospheric gases-co2/green house family of gases? he could make it more sexier by taking it all the way to Sun/solar storm effects to life on Earth, and correlate unexplained anything in this planet, including mysteries(pyramids, aids, giants etc) to solar storm. as no one will have the time to proof check it. they will gladly be done allocating a budget Dollars to 'stop the solar storm' i.e. stop his rant at the door. Ideas for al gore: solar storm causes climate change and that creates man made co2: Little more difficult to comprehend ,hence more money making chances -more for longer. A movie think about it: hollywood has the technology to show such armageddon movies based on solar storm etc. Climate change anyone can produce movies/docs. So hollywood lost an opportunity to monopolise movies on solar storm with d.c. approval.

This book was very boring and also sounds almost completely made up. I am planning to return it.

Inhofe is as good an example of a corrupt right wing politician as any.  To call his book delusional gives him too much credit,   He is owned lock stock and barrel by the fossil industry.

this book was written by a totally uneducated person, who enjoys contradicting most scientist's views on Climate Change. If I were into burning books "The greatest Hoax" would be the first one on the pile.
