Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) brought photos of the family’s DC igloo to the Senate on Monday. Inhofe then proceeded to give junk scientist Al Gore a thrashing during his speech on the Senate floor.
Senator Inhofe called global warming junk science “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.”
The Politico reported:
Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) attacked former Vice President Al Gore on the Senate floor Monday, calling climate change “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people” and claiming that Gore is now “running for cover.”
The “hoax” line is an Inhofe standby, but he raised the level of attack on Monday.
In front of the backdrop of a blown up Weekly Standard cover featuring Gore, Inhofe railed on the former vice president.
“After weeks of the global warming scandal, the world’s first climate billionaire is running for cover. Yes, I’m talking about Al Gore,” Inhofe charged. “He’s under siege these days. The credibility of the IPCC is eroding. The EPA’s endangerment finding is collapsing. And belief that global warming is leading to catastrophe is evaporating. Gore seems to be drowning in a sea of his own global warming illusions nevertheless. He’s desperately trying to keep global warming alarmism alive today.”
Inhofe also floated a political conspiracy theory focused on Gore.
He cited a secret “high-level meeting with all [Gore’s] global alarmists,” called a recent Gore op-ed in the New York Times a “sure-fire sign of desperation” and compared Gore to an ostrich.
