Sen. Inhofe Discusses Climategate, “The Greatest Scandal in Modern Science”

December 8th, 2009 Todd Thurman

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK), ranking Member on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee (EPW), spoke to bloggers at The Heritage Foundation’s weekly Bloggers Briefing today and focused his remarks on the controversial “Climategate” scandal — the series of leaked e-mails that have blown holes through the theory of man-made global warming.

As Sen. Inhofe sat down to speak, he opined that he was just in the Senate trying to convince Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA) to investigate the subject of the e-mails, instead of the people who uncovered the e-mails. Sen. Inhofe was the leader of the global warming opposition ten years ago when he chaired the EPW Committee; when a blogger asked him what he thought about the emergent news that the science was flawed, the Senator quipped, “Redemption.”

Senator Inhofe is not alone in his views on “Climategate.” The UK Telegraph called it the “greatest scandal in modern science,” and the UK MET is reevaluating over 160 years of climate data because “public opinion of man-made global warming has been shattered by leaked e-mails.” Sen. Inhofe seemed confident that neither climate bills would pass the Senate, but feared the Obama Administration would circumvent the legislative process and use the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to force regulation through the Clean Air Act. Sen. Inhofe fired back by releasing a YouTube video saying that the EPA finding that CO2 is a pollutant was based on faulty science.

Now, the United Nations is in the middle of the Copenhagen Climate Change Conference, where “the science is settled.” However, as we have stated, the science is far from settled. Now, the world has learned that the basis of the science that climate change was founded on could be proven faulty. This has not stopped the UN’s International Panel on Climate Change from creating a treaty that will be costly to the US economy and not have any real impact on the environment. And it’s a treaty that would infringe on our national sovereignty.

    Climategate has a little brother - the coverup by the formerly main stream press! They have refused to ask difficult questions of our so called experts - things like, "don't you think Americans are capable of understanding the raw data?" and... why did this data need to be falsified or manipulated if the case for global warming was clear and unequivocal?
  • Harrison
    It does not matter what is said or what information if produced Liberals are after the money to be made from CO2 and global warming. They will stop at nothing to get at it.

    Freedom Lovers: At least something will be rotten in the state of Denmark when the White House Squirrel (tied to Acorn) arrives in Copenhagen to find ways to CHEW us out and SNUFF out freedom! Speaking of Copenhagen, we've gotta find ways to cope with that squirrel which keeps hoggin' the spotlight! Squirrel Watcher

    At the rate the Liberals are ramrodding their ideals down our throats we may need to look at individuals running for office on the platform of repealing all this garbage. Can we charge these people for perjury or bring them before the Supreme Court for breaking their oath of office to protect and defend the constitution from enemy foreign and DOMESTIC! Wake up Washington.... This is how the last revolution was started.

    Back to the topic. Leave it to political folks to just hate hate hate. You guys sing to the choir like every day here so let me actually make it interesting. We ALL should be supporting alternate green energy and thats the bottom line. Preserve the EARTH and respect the EARTH its a planet and its here for future generations. It annoys me to no end that the argument is "oh its a lie, so now we can ignore the whole green energy thing and helping the EARTH". Who cares whether the data is right or wrong, its irrelevant for people like me who don't like or trust either party or the government as a whole in the U.S anyway. I'm here as a person who lives to do good things for people, animals and the earth. I don't root for colored teams e.g "republicans'(RED) "democrats"(BLUE). Politics isn't a sports game. Just because you like one side doesn't mean you shut out common sense and just throw away the the discipline and practice of doing right for the EARTH. Try supporting a cleaner greener EARTH and don't let the government make you believe that its not important because a democrat likes the idea. Seriously we all need to continue to reduce, reuse and recycle, seek out alternate energy sources and transitioning to cleaner fuels for our cars and more fuel efficient cars is a must. Bring this party of conservatives to the future and try to care about the planet. Thank you.

    Save the planet? In the US there are more forests, the water is cleaner, the air is cleaner than it has been in over 100 years. You should be preaching to the Third World and their corrupt politicians who keep their populations poor and starving. If you don't see how politics plays into this then you are naive my friend.

    Hybrids destroy the environment why don't you look at what the mining of these rare metals does. The gasoline engine is one of the most efficient, cleanest burning sources of power ever developed. I'm sure you wouldn't mind dumping hundreds of billions of dollars into wind power that doesn't work when it's not windy or solar power that doesn't work when it's not sunny. Are you in favor of nuclear power?

    What is this "cleaner fuels for our cars" of which you speak? There IS no cleaner fuel than what we have now my friend. Ethanol is wasteful and polluting as is diesel.

    be careful, mrspear... you speak logic...they don't get logic here... they don't believe in this.
    common sense "get rid of it!" they say... lend a hand to those that need it "who the hell cares!" they say..."I got mine the hard way, let them do the same, damn it!!" they say...
    assholes with legs- that's all they are- I have no time left to spend on such ignorance demonstrated on this site. Judging by the lack of comments generated by the posts now that the original host has also lost interest here - nobody gives a shit about this site, it's three inhabitants, and the crap/hate/lies/ and recycled debunked material they spew. Enjoy your stupidity- you wear it well.
