Senator Inhofe on global warming

A few comments today from Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) as his Senate Environment and Public Works Committee held a hearing on the EPA's budget request.

"I think it was wrong" said Inhofe, regarding the effort of former NASA spokesman, George Deutsch, to block reporter access to NASA scientist James Hansen, who has warned about the dangers of global warming. Perhaps a surprising comment from a senator who has called global warming a "hoax."

True to form, however, Inhofe quickly tried to change the subject by attacking for Clinton Administration for allegedly trying to politicize global warming.

As for predictions by Hansen that global warming could lead to planetary danger, Inhofe snorted:

"I think a lot of people really enjoy disaster."
