James Inhofe: Climate Realists Have Beaten Warmists On Cap And Trade
But, to my way of thinking, Realists have to keep the fight up against the Warmists, who will keep attempting to enact their legislation and regulation. I once asked Ed Morrissey, back when he was still at Captain’s Quarters, why he bothered exposing the 9/11 Truthers, since they were basically wackjobs and conspiracy nuts. He said that things like Trutherism need to be exposed like cockroaches to sunlight, otherwise, they slowly breed and create more cockroaches. Same with anthropogenic global warming
(Daily Caller) Oklahoma Sen. James Inhofe, the ranking Republican member of the Environment and Public Works committee, told The Daily Caller on Monday that climate change skeptics have won the debate over global warming on Capitol Hill.
“We’ve won the fight because there’s no way in the world they could pass through legislation a cap and trade bill,” Inhofe said, referring to proposed laws that would limit carbon emissions. “It’s dead, gone, forever.”
Inhofe, the author of “The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future,” says that he initially believed claims that humans were responsible for climate change. But after reviewing the science behind the claim, Inhofe now says he believes that the theory is a lie, and that the United Nations is largely responsible for promoting it.
If Warmists have any brains, they’ll stop jumping sharks at every turn, and embrace real world solutions to our energy needs. Their over the top unhinged moonbattery has actually harmed the alternative energy debate, and harmed real environmentalism. They won’t stop, though, because the debate was never about Mother Earth, but, about taxation and control.
One way skeptics have won the debate, Inhofe said, is by debunking “every assertion” in “Al Gore’s science fiction movie” – a reference to the documentary “An Inconvenient Truth.” He also alluded to polls indicating that Americans have grown much more skeptical of global warming claims in recent years.
Debunking Warmist assertions has always been the most difficult, because they set up their pseudo-religion as non-disprovable, where everything is the result of someone taking an unnecessary fossil fueled drive to the grocery store and failing to use recyclable bags.
When asked what he thought proponents of the belief in man-made global warming have to gain from peddling ideas they know to be false, Inhofe demurred.
“I can’t answer the question because I’m not a liberal, so I don’t know what their motive is other than the fact it’s quite evident that they feel they want to be in a position to run everybody else’s life,” he said.
That is the point of their push: otherwise, Warmists might actually practice what they preach, instead of being the worst offenders.
