Well ,the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, Senator James Inhofe(R) took the time today to prove global warming is a hoax-by brandishing a snowball on the senate floor.
James Inhofe, the US senator who famously claimed that global warming was “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people”, attempted to underscore his climate denial on the Senate floor Thursday by brandishing a snowball.
“I ask the chair: do you know what this is? It’s a snowball,” said Inhofe, hefting the icy globe in his right hand, before tossing it at a Senate page.
The snowball stunt was part of a rambling speech to America’s most august deliberative body in which, amongst other points, Inhofe took aim at evidence by scientists that 2014 was the warmest year on record due to climate change. (According to detailed research Nasa and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, two of the top bodies of government scientists, it was.)
There is an old comedy routine from Firesign Theater in which one character attempts to prove he time traveled to ancient Greece by revealing that he has returned with a grape.
I doubt that Senator Inhofe was thinking about that routine today when he used a snowball found in Washington DC to dramatize his view that global climate change is a hoax, but he utilized the same flawless logic.
Senator Inhofe is no doubt, bound for grapeness
