Senator Inhofe, ranking member of the Committee on Environment and Public Works, says global warming is a hoax because the Bible tells him so.
In a radio interview with Voice of Christian Youth America Inhofe stated that we are arrogant to think that man has the ability to change God’s plan for the climate. He presumably said this in an air-conditioned room.
Talking about his latest book The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future, Inhofe was asked about the significance of using scripture to deny climate change:
“…the Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that “as long as the earth remains there will be springtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night.” My point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.”
Senator Inhofe recieves $1,352,523 in campaign contributions from oil and gas companies which includes $90,950 from Koch Industries which makes Koch Industries Inhofe’s number one campaign contributor. The Koch Brothers are ardent climate change deniers.
So while there’s overwhelming scientific evidence to suggest that climate change is happening, that the earth is getting warmer and that there’s more man-made Co2 in the air since the industrial revolution to draw any correlation between these things is arrogant and outrageous because God controls the climate.
Maybe God’s against microwaves as well.
