In a new book out this week, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) traces the history of global warming hysteria and concludes it’s a downright hoax. He also reveals how climate-change champions are benefiting financially by promoting the idea.
Inhofe’s book, “The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future,” is sure to inspire heated debate on the controversial subject of climate change. As the ranking member on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Inhofe has been at the center of that debate for the past 10 years.
He’ll visit Heritage on March 14 for a detailed presentation that examines why global warming is a hoax. (Click to RSVP.) We spoke to him this week about the book as well as his views on rising gas prices and energy policy.
Inhofe recounted that when he first began to question conventional wisdom about global warming his phone rang off the hook as scientists complained their work was rejected because it didn’t fit with environmentalists’ preconceived conclusions about the issue.
Ten years later, Inhofe is still an outspoken critic. Today he warns that Americans are facing costly new regulations from Washington. “The regulations that come with this are much more punitive to my kids and grandkids,” he told us.
