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 i ...more

On 22 Jan 2015, the U.S. Senate voted 98-1 to approve a resolution stating that “it is the sense of the Senate that climate change is real and not a hoax.” The resolution was approved, and co-sponsored, by the most outspoken climate denier in the Senate, Jim Inhofe. So it's hard to take his book "The Greatest Hoax" very seriously. Rather, it appears to be just political posturing against Democratic Party initiatives.

I'd heard the claims and counter-claims about global warming over the past few y

Well done exposing the anthropogenic global warming hoax. Great documentation of the climategate e-mails admitting the pro global warming "scientists" outright manipulation of the facts to suit their modus operandi. Global warming/cooling is a scam, climate change is an ongoing phenomenon and has more to do with the sun, water vapour and ocean currents.

"In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine, and t

This book is a well written overview of Global Warming Alarmism, not an advocacy book. It's simply a report of what happened, about how the Obama Administration failed to pass Cap and Trade, even with a super majority in both houses of Congress.

This book just documents recent history. So why write it, when man-made Global Warming is totally debunked? As he says, "Because the environmental activist extremists are not going away." Man was he right!!!

The book is well written, and is, I think, the

Details Sen Inhofe's dedicated work in stifling and exposing the environmentalist's biggest jab at capitalism, American exceptionalism, and at making the world a mediocre place. Did not answer my core question as to what the rank-and-file "believer" thinks, and what motivates them to buy into the idea that we should regress, and tax ourselves into oblivion. Oh, I know what Algore gets out of it...it's the lame brained public, and undisciplines scientists and other apologists I don't get.

I am going to give you the main points of his argument as to why climate change is a hoax - climategate and the hockey stick graph. Most of the book focuses on the politics of climate change policy.

I read this book in preparation for meeting with the Senator's staff to discuss an environmental topic. I was surprised to find that the book hardly talks about the science of climate change at all. The biggest scientific point of focus is the "Climategate" email scandal, which ended up being a mining exercise for taking quotes out of context.

The majority of the book is devoted to the economic implications of the US taking on climate action without buy in from China and India (and other emerging
