  • Sen. Inhofe, denier of human role in climate change, likely to lead environment committee

    Sen. James M. Inhofe, an the Oklahoma Republican who once compared the Environmental Protection Agency to the gestapo, is likely to lead the Environment and Public Works Committee when the GOP takes control of the Senate next year. If approved, Inhofe would replace Chairman Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), an avowed environmentalist, producing one of the most stark post-election changes in the Capitol. Committee assignments will not be made until Senate party caucuses meet in Washington after the election recess. Inhofe, who has served in the Senate for two decades, is an iconic figure to both environmental and energy lobbyists. He chaired...

    In handing Republicans control of the Senate on Tuesday, Americans effectively voted for the party's hostile plans against President Barack Obama’s environmental legacy. Their votes also put the Senate's environment and climate policy into the hands of the worst science-denier in national politics: Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe, who is almost certainly the next chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Inhofe claimed in 2003 that global warming might help humanity. “It's also important to question whether global warming is even a problem for human existence. Thus far no one has seriously demonstrated any scientific proof that increased global...

    It wasn’t long ago that coal executives were openly discussing their dream of Republicans seizing the White House and making Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe — who believes climate change is a “hoax” concocted by greedy scientists — the head of the EPA. Now, they have a second chance. As dark money groups and SuperPACs backed by millions of dollars from the fossil fuel industry are propelling Republicans to a Senate majority, climate science-denying politicians are likely to seize control of key committee chairmanships, a coup for companies seeking to pollute the atmosphere with impunity. What’s more, Inhofe is slated to...

    Reaction to the president’s prime-time speech on ramping up efforts to take on the terror group ISIS ranged, not surprisingly, from very supportive — loyal huzzahs from Democrats such as House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Richard J. Durbin — to openly dismissive: Sen. Ted Cruz called the president “unserious.” “Tonight’s speech was disappointing, but not surprising. The President’s approach to ISIS has been – and remains – fundamentally unserious,” the Texas Republican said in a statement. An even more withering assessment of President Barack Obama’s address came from Oklahoma Republican Sen. James M. Inhofe. “Tonight, the President’s strategy...

    It was supposed to be a hearing about the Environmental Protection Agency’s requested 2013 budget, but Obama’s energy policies still managed to take center stage for a time at a Senate Environment and Public Works Committee hearing Thursday. During opening statements at the hearing, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R., Okla.) and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) traded jabs over President Obama’s energy production numbers until Boxer, also the committee chairwoman, banged her gavel to put an end to the conversation. Full transcript: SEN. BARBARA BOXER: So all this talk about how the president is against this is incorrect. He is for...

    Sen. Inhofe tackles global warmingBy Kris Kitto - 02/29/12 07:24 PM ET Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) never planned on becoming an author, but his passion for questioning global-warming theories led him to write his first book. The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future hit bookshelves Tuesday. Q: What inspired you to write this book? When the issue first came up, I actually believed it because everyone said it, until I became chairman of [the Environment and Public Works] Committee. At that time they came out with the cost to install some type of cap-and-trade system, and...

    Leave it to Robert F. Kennedy Jr. to one-up Rush Limbaugh in the name-calling department. "Speaking of prostitutes, big oil's top call girl Sen Inhofe wants to kill fuel economy backed by automakers, small biz, enviros, & consumers," the New York-based environmentalist wrote Tuesday on Twitter. Kennedy was targeting Inhofe for a letter the Oklahoma Republican sent last week to EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson that questions the Obama administration's fuel economy and air pollution policies. Inhofe spokesman Matt Dempsey said Kennedy's tweet crosses the line, especially in the wake of Limbaugh’s apology to a Georgetown University student after calling her...

    I guess it just takes a little digging to figure out which synonym is appropriate.  Better break open your thesaurus, or maybe your slang thesaurus. I'm totally kidding.  It doesn't matter what the hell you say.  As long as you consist of a certain political orientation.  And it's pretty obvious which one. Anyhow, Robert F. Kennedy is a Rush Limbaugh-one upper -- at least, he thinks he is. “Speaking of prostitutes, big oil’s top call girl Sen Inhofe wants to kill fuel economy backed by automakers, small biz, enviros, & consumers,” the New York-based environmentalist wrote Tuesday on Twitter.Kennedy was targeting Inhofe...

    U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe years ago declared man-made global warming a hoax and more recently declared victory over his opponents in that long-running debate. Still, the Oklahoma Republican believes his work is not done. Next week, the senator said his plans for the book's introduction include interviews with several broadcast personalities known for being on the other side of the debate. Published by WND Books, which described it as a coup de grace to the global-warming movement, the book is titled "The Greatest Hoax," with the subtitle "How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future." Next week, the senator said,...

    Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe, who had been a Rick Perry supporter before he dropped out of the race, had some kind words for Rick Santorum in an interview on Aaron Klein's show on WABC radio. "In terms of the candidates that are there right now I’d certainly say Rick Santorum has a better record addressing the four major issues that concern me," he said, referring to defense, economy, energy and trimming the regulatory system.

    wo years ago, the Obama administration practically staged an airlift of leading Democratic officials to the UN climate conference in Copenhagen. Barack Obama himself made an appearance, as did Nancy Pelosi, Hillary Clinton, and even Republican Senator Jim Inhofe, who went to represent the AGW skeptics and demand answers to the then-breaking Climategate scandal. In the end, Obama could only produce a non-binding agreement that even he didn’t agree to sign, while domestic support for climate-change policy collapsed underneath him. Fast forward two years. We have Climategate 2.0 accompanying another UN conference on climate change, this time in Durban. The...

    Gov. Rick Perry's most recent endorsement came today from Sen. Jim Inhofe, a fellow climate-change skeptic, who said the Texas Governor is the strongest Republican to challenge President Obama in 2012. "I've known Gov. Rick Perry for a long time, and I am endorsing him because I know he is the strongest leader to run against and defeat President Obama. After three years of Obama's liberal agenda, Rick Perry is the right person to get America working again and turn our country in the right direction," Sen. Inhofe said in Tulsa, Okla., today. "We can't afford four more years of...

    Rick Perry will pick up a conservative endorsement from Capitol Hill, according to a report today from Tulsa, Oklahoma. Senator James Inhofe told a Chamber of Commerce audience at the Tulsa Press Club that he plans on making good to a promise he made Rick Perry a year ago to be the first to endorse him for President: “I called Rick Perry a year ago and told him, ‘If you’re running for president, I’ll be the first to endorse you,’” Inhofe said at a State Chamber of Commerce breakfast at the Tulsa Press Club.“I’m going to be that person on...

    The ink was barely dry on President Barack Obama’s nomination for Secretary of Commerce before congressional Republicans promised to oppose the pick. California Rep. Darrel Issa, chairman of the House oversight committee, took aim at John Bryson, the nominee, calling him a “green evangelist.” Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe promised to work “actively” to defeat Bryson’s nomination. Inhofe, ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, said Tuesday that Obama’s choice shows “that he has no intention of backing down from his job-killing agenda.” In a statement, Issa decried Obama’s choice to head the Department of Commerce,...
