A passionate former Vice President Al Gore warned two congressional panels Tuesday that environmentally "we are facing a planetary emergency" because of climate change fueled by emissions of greenhouse gasses. He urged that we take drastic action because we're facing a feverish planet and dwindling time.
But an unmoved Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) mused that Gore was wrong, and rejected Gore's call to action with a flat, "we're not going to do it."
The in-your-face Inhofe rejected Gore's educated testimony, preferring to nurse his narrow ideological biases. As a bible-quoting ultra-conservative, Inhofe rejects global warming as the "second-largest hoax ever played on the American people, after the separation of church and state."
This big-oil-loving, gay bashing, torture condoning, flat-earth Inhofe is what is wrong with religion, and government. Malicious ignorance.
