More Obstruction on Climate Change

Oklahoma's Rethuglican Sen. and holy roller climate change denier James "Head-In-Hole" Inhofe (R - Oil Patch) not only doesn't think man's activities have been a primary source of climate change, he doesn't believe there's a problem at all because the Bible says so.  This lunatic has succeeded in blocking a Senate resolution, which has no binding effect, that simply acknowledges that climate change is occurring.

Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D - RI) noted that Head-In-Hole is living in an "alternate reality" if he even denies the reality of climate change.  It's an alternate reality that's well-compensated by the fossil fuel industry, which has an enormous financial stake in burning dirty fossil fuels.  It's also an alternate reality that ultimately will degrade the planet for many generations to come, if not checked in time.
