Jim Inhofe, a real estate developer with a B.A. degree, pontificates about the lack of evidence for global warming on the floor of the U.S. Senate. Watch him grin like an idiot as he demands that those concerned about climate change need to explain the recent late spring snowstorm to people in Oklahoma.
No one needs to explain it to me. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand how ice melting in the Arctic and rising sea levels could have an effect on the climate in Oklahoma.
Inhofe's ignorance is deliberate. The world's premier school of meteorology and the National Weather Center are in his district. There are plenty of experts around who could explain the evidence for global warming to him. Inhofe doesn't care to listen to experts who disagree with him.
He also has enough power to influence the careers of those who either agree or disagree with him.
