Another Dumb Statement!

Found at Americablog and they found it at Senate Majority:

In Saturday’s Tulsa World, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), the Chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, reiterated his stated belief that global warming is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people” by comparing it to the lies told by the Nazis during the Holocaust.

If I were from Oklahoma, I would be very embarrassed to have a complete idiot like Inhofe as a Senator. Obviously, the guy doesn't believe in science. According to Project Vote Smart, Inhofe has a B.A. from the University of Tulsa. Do you think he took any science courses at the University of Tulsa?

Global Warming is an established scientific fact. It is not my fault that some people aren't smart enough to understand it.

Here is more from the interview at Tulsa World:
...Inhofe insists that the number of polar bears is not dropping and that some of the glaciers in the national park are actually getting bigger.

As for the Kilimanjaro glacier, which reportedly is disappearing, Inhofe said the loss can be blamed on the cutting of trees, which once held the moisture.

"One by one, you can refute everything they are saying," Inhofe said.

He includes in that claim the warnings by some that the planet is closing in on a tipping point or a point of no return when it comes to climate change.

Inhofe recalls the warnings a few decades ago that another ice age was coming.

He dismisses even the suggestions that Americans could help by giving up big cars or using more energy-efficient light bulbs.

"It is not going to make any difference," the senator said.

"But if it makes them feel good, they can do it."

Lucky for the people in Oklahoma Inhofe is up for re-election. I hope that they pick someone smarter than Inhofe.
