  1. The Senator has a famous snow fetish. 🙂

      Frosty Inhofe

        Sing along with me…….new opening lines

        Frosty the senator
        was a jolly sappy troll,
        With a cowflop brain
        and an oil-coated nose
        And two pockets full of coal (money).

        Still working on the chorus……

        “dumbetty dumb dumb
        dumbetty dumb dumb
        Look at Inhofey go….”


  2. It takes a special kind of mind to think that scientists are all in on this in a conspiracy, fudging with data, meeting in secret places, talking in secret codes (formulas), all while they get grant funding… I mean, I can understand people doing quackery if they know there is money in it, I mean like under the table WillieSoon-dollars – but a normal scientist?!?

    It’s such a ridiculous idea, that if he really really believe this himself, it’s really strange that such a person is even allowed to speak publicly at all and not committed to some asylum for treatment.

    Oreskes: “Conspiracy? Scientists are not that organized”
    That, in a nutshell, explains how ludicrous the denier claims are.

  5. The Strom Thurmond of climate change. Very apt. The mentality of climate change denial and denying the immorality of segregation, even slavery, is closely related but rarely acknowledged. http://achangeintheweather.com/2013/01/21/climate-change-is-a-civil-rights-issue/
