“Man can’t change climate,” only God can, says Senate chair of Environment & Public Works

“Climate is changing, and climate has always changed,” said James Inhofe, an Oklahoma Republican who has previously pointed to the Bible as evidence that human-caused global warming is a hoax. “There’s archeological evidence of that. There’s biblical evidence of that. There’s historic evidence of that.” He continued: “The hoax is that there are some people who are so arrogant to think that they are so powerful, they can change climate. Man can’t change climate.”

For some very depressing reasons, this video clip from a recent U.S. Senate hearing is going viral. Senator James Inhofe believes the climate may be changing but that it has absolutely nothing to do with human activity like burning fossil fuels, because The Lord.

“Climate is changing and climate has always changed and always will,” Inhofe told the Senate last week.

“There’s archeological evidence of that. There’s biblical evidence of that. There’s historic evidence of that.”

“The hoax is that there are some people who are so arrogant to think that they are so powerful, they can change climate. Man can’t change climate.”

Sen. Inhofe chairs the Senate’s Environment and Public Works Committee.

  1. To produce Electricity, there are two lobbies in USA, one for Coal and the other is for Wind, Solar and Natural Gas, the clean energy. On their TV screens I saw ads for Coal saying the future is with coal. Lobbyists use even biblical sayings to justify their ideology. 

    Recoverable Coal Reserves by Country:  http://www.c2es.org/docUploads/coal-2-05-14.png

    As of January 1, 2014, EIA estimated that the remaining U.S. recoverable coal reserves totaled over 256 billion short tons, from a DRB of 480 billion short tons. In the United States, coal resources are larger than remaining natural gas and oil resources, based on total British thermal units (Btus). 

    Presently the Govt and general public opinion is for clean energy. Lot of incentives are given for Solar and Wind Power.  A scientific approach is the answer of climate change.
    Human interference in Nature is one cause of change of environment because we do disrupt the Ecosystem of this world.

    بِسمِ اللَّهِ الرَّحمٰنِ الرَّحيمِ
    1.  وَٱلْعَصْرِ
    2. إِنَّ ٱلْإِنسَٰنَ لَفِى خُسْرٍ
    3. إِلَّا ٱلَّذِينَ ءَامَنُوا۟ وَعَمِلُوا۟ ٱلصَّٰلِحَٰتِ وَتَوَاصَوْا۟ بِٱلْحَقِّ وَتَوَاصَوْا۟ بِٱلصَّبْرِ

  2. What you have to remember is that this man was put in office with oil money and has stayed in office with oil money. He will always choose on the side of oil. His religion is an excuse.

  3. Oh would you people please stop speculating about who God is. I AM GOD. It’s that freaking simple. I caused all the global warming. It’s all my fault. I single handedly increased greenhouse gas emissions over the last 40 years to the breaking point. It’s got nothing to do with too many factories or automobiles, people, or deforestation etc. I did it just for the hell of it…to bug liberals. I have nothing better to do.
