Jim Inhofe is still an idiot (Part III)


Welcome back to another edition of the way-to-easy-to-write series "Jim Inhofe Is Still an Idiot."

Earlier this week, the Huffington Post took a look back at Inhofe's 2012 book "The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future." They pointed out that Inhofe, fresh off his snowball stunt, thinks global warming cannot exist because of a passage in Genesis where God promises to maintain the seasons.

Via Huff Po:

In his recent book on climate change, which he titles The Greatest Hoax, he assures readers that the scientists -- which he refers to as "alarmists" throughout the book -- can be ignored because a greater Authority has already spoken.

"I take my religion seriously," Inhofe writes. "[T]his is what a lot of alarmists forget: God is still up there, and He promised to maintain the seasons and that cold and heat would never cease as long as the earth remains."

For those still skeptical of his climate change skepticism, Inhofe quotes from the source material, "one of my favorite Bible verses," Genesis 8:22:

As long as the earth remains
There will be springtime and harvest
Cold and heat, winter and summer

Inhofe was asked about this particular piece of Scripture during a radio interview when his book came out. The passage, he said, is so conclusive that it's simply outrageous that scientists continue to address the matter.

"The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous," he said.

You know what else is outrageous??? That a US Senator would try to use a 2,000 year old compilation of myths, legends and fairytales to dispute an accepted, modern scientific theory.

Seriously, what a looney. If Inhofe really believed that nonsense, you think he would actually do something about global warming. I really doubt he wants God to take action and cast a plague on all the people, politicians and corporations that are causing the seasons to change.

Anyway, that concludes this edition of "Jim Inhofe Is Still an Idiot." I assume we'll have more next week.
