Senator plans to gatecrash global warming conference
NRO ^ | 26th Sep | Robert Costa

Posted on 09/26/2009 9:58:44 AM PDT by freepersunite

Sen. James Inhofe (R., Okla.), ranking member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works (EPW), tells NRO that he plans to “lead a truth squad” at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen this December.

The Oklahoman predicts that he probably will not be welcomed with open arms. Inhofe, as you may remember, led a similar group of conservative legislators in 2003, during the U.N.’s climate-change negotiations in Milan, Italy. “I was the outcast at that time,” recalls Inhofe. “Now, I want to make sure that those attending the Copenhagen conference know what is really happening in the United States Senate. Some people, like Senator Barbara Boxer, will tell the conference, with Waxman-Markey having passed in the House, that they can anticipate that some kind of bill will pass EPW.” Such statements, Inhofe says, deserve a bold response. “Look,” he says, “there is no bill that is bad enough to not pass out of our committee. There may be enough votes to get a bill out of EPW, but there is far from enough support in the Senate. The Democrats don’t have the votes. There are too many newly-elected Democrats in the Senate who don’t want to go home and tell voters that they just voted for the largest tax increase in American history.”

Six years ago, when Inhofe was in Milan, global-warming activists were so infuriated by his mere presence that they papered “Wanted” posters with his picture across the conference center, emblazoned with his famous quote about global warming: “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.” That was the “first time the environmentalists have ever quoted me accurately,” he quipped at that time.

Inhofe adds that watching President Obama’s climate-change speech at the U.N. on Tuesday only made him more convinced that flying across the pond this winter to speak up was necessary. Obama, he says, was too vague and short on substance. “I don’t know what he’s going to do. It’s clear that he doesn’t know what he’s going to do, either,” says Inhofe. “What is clear is that the far Left is also upset with Obama.” (Bloomberg has more about Obama and his green discontents here.)

Who else will be joining Inhofe on his European crusade? The senator is mum for now. “I’ll see who’s willing to come,” he says. As the Danish say: Held og lykke.

This kind of childish enviro terrorism does more to expose the truth behind this global warming hoax than anything else. It's shows that it isn't "science" at all that is behind this "gore bull" warming BS, just enviro terrorism by a group of far left wing nuts who hate the thought of people driving cars and burning "evil oil", who want to seize control of the earths energy sources and dictate how people should live, which is like a neadrathal living in a grass hut in the dark.

“global warming: “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.”

Close, but the Number 1 hoax Still goes to the “Constitution is a living, breathing document.” rather than Meaning Exactly what it says, nothing more and nothing less.

Because without the enviro idiots being able to Sue for Govt monies, they wouldn’t exist.

Inhofe should take weatherman John Coleman with him.
