Sen. James Inhofe: Pope Francis Ought to Stay Out of Climate Change Debate

Global Warming skeptics bashed the Pope at the Heartland Institute this year.
Senator Inhofe told the pope “stay with his job and we’ll stay with ours.”

Attendees at the annual Heartland conference agreed that Pope Francis ought to spend more time on how to lift the poor from poverty rather than on green politics that hurt the poor.

The Washington Times reported:

The chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee is telling Pope Francis to stay out of the ongoing debate over global warming.

“Everyone is going to ride the pope now. Isn’t that wonderful,” Sen. James Inhofe, Oklahoma Republican, said Thursday, according to the Guardian. The pope ought to stay with his job, and we’ll stay with ours.”

A few moments later, Mr. Inhofe said: “I am not going to talk about the pope. Let him run his shop, and we’ll run ours.”
