Senator Jim Inhofe

If Republicans win control of the U.S. Senate this year, Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK), a lawmaker famous for his belief that the entire body of climate science research is a “hoax,” will take control of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, which oversees matters relating to pollution and environmental problems.

So it should be little surprise then that Inhofe made an appearance by video last week at the Heartland Institute, a think tank famous for peddling big business-friendly viewpoints on behalf of corporate sponsors, during a conference for climate change skeptics. The group, like Inhofe’s political action committee, is funded through hefty donations from the oil and gas industry. Inhofe’s speech came during the lunch session led by Christopher Monckton, a British pundit famous for his outlandish views, including the belief that AIDS patients should be “quarantined.”

“You guys are the only ones out there that can be effective in this battle,” said Inhofe, cheering on the conference attendees. “Good luck you guys, let’s win this together.”

    A clear sign of reptile dysfunction among the extreme GOP –

    Evil Inhofe’s masters have yet to pay for any of the Oklahoma earthquakes from fracking, waste disposal, and regular killer AGW. Evil, his highness, has yet to bravely throw himself in front of the cameras showing all of his disgruntled citizens who have been turned into people in common with Iran, Gujarat, Yunnan, Sumatra, Guatemala, and other AGW quake victims.
