In the history of this world, wingnuts always prove to be wrong. Flat earth? Support the King in the American Revolution? Don't you think it's time that a few of them woke up?
From Raw Story
Sen. James Inhofe (r-OK) on Wednesday explained that Al Gore and the
United Nations get most of the blame for what he called a global warming
"hoax," but filmmaker Michael Moore and billionaire George Soros
deserved some credit too.
At a Environment and Public Works
Committee on President Barack Obama's nomination of Gina McCarthy to be
the next head of the Environmental Protection Agency, Sen. Bernie
Sanders (I-VT) said that he wanted the agency to listen to scientists
instead of climate change deniers like Inhofe and Sen. John Barrasso
"What Sen. Inhofe has written and talked about is his
belief that global warming is one of the major hoaxes ever perpetrated
on the American people, that it's a hoax pushed by people like Al Gore,
the United Nations and the Hollywood elite," Sanders told the committee.
"I think that is a fair quote from Sen. Inhofe. Is that roughly right, Sen. Inhofe?" Sanders asked the Oklahoma repugican.
"Yes," Inhofe agreed. "I'd add to that list MoveOn.org, George Soros, Michael Moore and a few others."
exactly the issue," Sanders said, turning back to the committee. "Do we
agree with Sen. Inhofe that global warming is a hoax and that we do not
want the federal government, the EPA, the Department of Energy to
address that issue? Because it is a -- quote -- unquote -- hoax,
according to Sen. Inhofe and others? Or do we believe and agree with the
overwhelming majority of scientists who tell us that global warming is
the most serious planetary crisis that we face, and that we must act
boldly and aggressively to protect the future of this planet? That is
what the issue is."
