Chicken-Fried News: Smooth move



It’s happening. It’s really, really happening.

Sort of.

Oklahoma’s own James Inhofe, new chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, admitted climate change is real. Mom, check our forehead. Do we have a fever? It feels a bit ... warm in here.

Last Wednesday, the U.S. Senator requested to co-sponsor Whitehouse Amendment No. 29 to legislation S.1, which included this phrase: “climate change is real and is not a hoax.”

Holy shit, guys. Inhofe, a longtime climate change debunker, urged his Republican colleagues to vote for it, too. And they did! It passed 98-1.

“The climate is changing, as it always has been changing and always will. There’s archeological evidence of that, there’s biblical evidence of that, there’s historic evidence of that — it will always change,” Inhofe said.

However, it doesn’t mean that he supports spending billions of dollars to help slow climate change. He blocked language “that would have blamed human activity,” Politico reported.

Well nevermind.

“How arrogant is it for people to say that man can do something about changing the climate?” Inhofe asked.

Well played, Inhofe. Well played.
