In a stunningly blatant display of true motivation being revealed, view the antiscience, global warming denier Sen. James Inhofe admit that it’s all about money…
Did you see the big smack down last night between MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and Senator James Inhofe (R-OK)? The dean of disinformation mostly just repeated his well-worn falseshoods about global warming, which Maddow shot down.
But there was one remarkable admission from the former Chair of the Senate Environment Committee:
“I was actually on your side of this issue when I was chairing that committee and I first heard about this. I thought it must be true until I found out what it cost.”
Oh, yes. It confirms what has always been suspected. Extremists like Inhofe HATE the idea that we have to change our ways, and that costs money, in order to deal with global warming.
So, they will find ways to justify their views anyway they can. That means invoking The Bible and manufacturing doubt about the science.
Having extensive experience in environmental policy, I would not argue that the costs we must all face should play into the ultimate decisions we make. However, to use this as an EXCUSE to deny reality is abhorrent.
This is so not a disputed issue anymore. Global warming is happening and Inhofe is a denialist who values his selfish, personal ideology over facts and the greater good for humanity.
