inhofe_snowballSen. James Inhofe of Oklahoma receives our most Out of Touch with Reality post for believing he disproved that climate change is manmade by bringing a snow ball to congress. He states in his book The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future, where he makes his claim that human influenced climate change is impossible because “God’s still up there.” Inhofe cited Genesis 8:22 to claim that it is “outrageous” and arrogant for people to believe human beings are “able to change what He is doing in the climate.”

James Mountain “Jim” Inhofe is the senior United States senator from Oklahoma and a member of the Republican Party.

Inhofe was born in Des Moines, Iowa. Inhofe received a B.A. degree when he was nearly 40 years old from the University of Tulsa in 1973. He worked in the field of aviation, as a real estate developer, and in insurance, eventually becoming the president of the Quaker Life Insurance Company. During the time he worked for Quaker Life, the company went into receivership; it was liquidated in 1986.
