Senate’s climate change denier in chief falls victim to climate change

Inhofe sickened by swim in algae filled lake before  meeting of climate change deniers


climate change denier

James Inhofe is without doubt the worst of the worst when it comes to denying the science of climate change.  His language is strong, and his sarcasm is all pervasive when he refuses to believe that global warming is contributing to climate change.  When reminded that the world’s scientists are almost unanimous in their findings, Inhofe snarls and spits, calling the the phenomenon a liberal hoax.  In point of fact Inhofe is a fool.  Now, he’s a sick fool.  Read the story here:

The dean of climate science denying politicians, Oklahoma’s senior senator James Inhofe, was forced to cancel an appearance at the Heartland Institute’s sixth international conference on climate change on Friday, and says he became ill after swimming in an algae filled lake near his Oklahoma vacation home. “There is no question,” Inhofe said. “That night, Monday night, I was just deathly sick.” He had encouraged his granddaughter to join him, but said, “She didn’t want to get in that green stuff.”

Heartland’s conference, convened to take on the scientific evidence showing that human emissions are contributing to global warming, featured scientists such as the Cato Institute’s controversial Patrick Michaels, who claims that the impact of humans on the climate is limited or non-existent.

Inhofe said he became ill after swimming in Grand Lake earlier in the week. He and his wife have owned their Ketchum Hollow home for years, but have never before seen such an algae outbreak. Some Oklahomans blame run off from Tyson chicken operations upstream from the lake. Directors of the Grand River Dam Authority recommended visitors to the lake avoid contact with the water.

    This is summer isn’t it? It does get hot in Oklahoma in summer, doesn’t it? Have we never had algae on water before global warming was invented by Al Gore?

    laugh all you want MMA but Senator Inofe will soon be on hos feet fighting for common sense.

      Common sense is the wisdom of the ignorant who distrust people with advanced degrees in science.

      Actually Grand Lake, about two hours from my house, has never seen an outbreak of blue algae quite like this. I’m sure run off from the chicken farms is a contributing factor. As for the heat, it has been extraordinary this year. We aren’t supposed to have endless 100 plus degree weather this early in the summer.

        We also had 100+ degree heat, with a couple of days reaching 107. The Republicans refused to believe it.

      Sorry Milton but I’m not sure who is more stupid, you or Inhofe.
