Okie Sen. James Inhofe: No Climate Change Because Bible Told Him So
Best and smartest US Senator by universal acclamation James Inhofe haslaideth down some Science on thee during an interview with (who else?) the Voice of Christian Youth America radio show "Crosstalk." Spaketh Inhofe, while evangelizing his new "book," The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future, "Well actually the Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that ‘as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night,’ my point is, God’s still up there. 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." In yer face, Science!
The ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works then whipped all the climate change conspiracists in the temple.
He went on to cite Romans 1:25 ["because they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever! Amen."] to criticize people, particularly evangelicals like [Richard] Cizik, who believe in climate change. Inhofe said that just as Scripture forecasted, people have now “worship the creation” when they support environmental protection, which seems to assume that humans won’t be negatively impacted by climate change.
Nobody tell Inhofe Man can now do earthquakes, too, okay? [Right Wing Watch]
