He's got your 'global warming' right here!

Oklahoma Republican Sen. James (“Jim” to his friends, “Dickface” to most of America) Inhofe knows global warming is a hoax, as he has proven repeatedly, why won’t you dumb people listen to him instead of all those “scientists” who say otherwise? (No, not the scientists paid by the oil and gas industry to deny climate change is real; the other 99 percent of scientists who say yes it is TOO real.)

Well, FINE, here is Inhofe on the floor of the Senate, once and for all proving that global warming is not real because snow, and he happens to have that snow RIGHT HERE, CATCH!

Yup, guess that settles it, and global warming is a hoax invented by MoveOn.org, Michael Moore, and George Soros after all. Well done, Sen. Inhofe, you win.

    A reasonable counter-argument would be the administration of a glowing lava enema to the senator.

    If global warming is real, why is Mrs. Inhofe frigid?

    • Villago Delenda Est

      Because she’s never been to bed with a real man?

  • ArgieBargie

    And with people like Senator Inhof heading the Environment and Public Works Committee, America’s got a snowball’s chance in hell.

  • Toomush_Infer

    So….no science until 2017, then?…

  • MsAnthropesMr

    I have here this snowball, which lists 95 active members of the communist party.

  • SayItWithWookies

    Well if that’s the standard Senator Inhofe wants to use for evidence, then clearly the evidence also shows that he should never be allowed to fly an airplane again, either.

    • Villago Delenda Est

      This twit holds a flight instructor’s license? Clearly deregulation fever has hit the FAA if they’ve allowed the standards to slip this much.

    • formerChild

      The flying part isn’t so hard. Just the landing part. In a fluke of bad luck he lived through it.

    • Setag Mailliw

      So close. The article said he knew the runway was closed. What kind of arrogant S.O.B. he must be.

    • ShriekinViolet

      It’s cold in the Northern Hemisphere and hot in the Southern Hemisphere – you can’t explain that.

      Dog whistle alert: I’m sure there’s a deleted commenter just aching to explain why “certain people” gravitate to Southron climes.

    This applies to Inhofe’s brain too, right? I mean until I see him holding it in his hands how do I know he actually has one?

  • SayItWithWookies

    Someone should tell Jim Inhofe that scientists believe that water contains oxygen so he can disprove that obviously inane idea, too.

    • House0fTheBlueLights

      This is a truly excellent idea.

  • Joshua Norton

    global warming is not real because snow,

    So ‘splain the dry heatwaves we’ve been having on the West Coast this winter Jimbo. Go ahead. I dare you.

  • Callyson
  • OneYieldRegular

    “Well, Senator, to answer your question, I assume that you got it from the snow outside, which has been falling in near record amounts in the northeast this winter as part of increasingly intense storm systems just as predicted in empirical models by scientists who have identified a clear pattern of warming global temperatures and have connected this phenomena directly to human activity.”

    Is everyone asleep in that room?

    • Blank Ron

      When aren’t they?

  • Callyson

    Also, too:

    Thanks, Senator Inhofe, but I’d rather not play with any of your balls.

  • AmusedAmused

    If the Earth is round, how come we don’t fall off?

  • Olav_Pompatus

    Silly me! And here I thought snow was a precipitation event, not a temperature plunge. Thanks. Prof. Jim!

  • Poly_Ester

    Snowball fights in the Senate chambers must be a violation of the Senate’s rules of decorum. Don’t you think?

    • Jukesgrrl

      Not if they’re throwing them at the girls like that uppity Lizzie Warren.

      • nmmagyar

        That is a fight that would get really ugly, really quick (and they would lose, really bad)

      • Hardly Ideal

        OT, but it reminds me of a bit from John Oliver about state legislators:

        (Utah’s 84-day session) isn’t a senate, it’s a summer camp! But instead of cooking smores and throwing sticks at possums, they’re restricting abortions and throwing sticks at possums.

    • Sam Hain

  • Ilgattomorte

    This kind of stuff always begs a question for me, “Can he really be this dumb or does he just think we are that stupid?” The former is bad, but the latter is even worse. The reality is it’s probably a little of both. I find it really hard to crack jokes about this. It’s like making fun of a one-legged guy because he walks funny.

  • House0fTheBlueLights

    Snark off.

    Are you fucking kidding me? Isn’t he embarrassed? I know I’m embarrassed that this guy is a Senator.

    He can’t possibly be this stupid. When he’s having dinner at the Elite White Men’s Club with his buddies from Exxon and BP does he say to them, “Now, boys, if I hold up a snowball, y’all won’t laugh AT me will ya? I think your customers will really fall for that.”

    • ShriekinViolet

      “He can’t possibly be this stupid.”

      I know, right? But, yes, yes he can be this stupid. Whether it’s feigned ignorance or actual stupidity, this is your Senate, ladies and gentlemen.

  • Gleem-McShinez

    The existence of a snowball proves the climate isn’t changing?

    Then I’m sure Inhofe would accept the existence of fossils proves the Bible isn’t true.

    • ShriekinViolet

      Not exactly…. Fossils were “evidence” placed by god to test the faithful while snowballs in winter prove that liberals are terrible.

          Vancouver was really mild throughout January. Fog and mist out on the islands (but not in a John Carpenter type way, thank goodness). Not even much rain to speak of.

        • Zippy

          When I was at Sundance, temps were in the mid fifties the second week. We’re talking about Park City, a ski resort area at 10,000 feet. The locals were freaking out as all the snow melted

    Senator Inhofe of Oklahoma is but one example of why the United States is falling as a world power, and why we are at serious risk of proving our democratic republic as constructed currently is a failure as a form of government.

    • docterry6973

      I swear, if a dictator took over this country and gave it to the oil companies Inhofe would clap like a trained seal.

      • DominicBruysPorter

        well, after yet another election where the R candidate was elected by a minority of the popular vote (three in a row now? whereas Obama won the pop vote both times) i wouldn’t be so surprised if he is clapping right now.

        ok, had to double check, but Bush jr did squeak by a majority in 04, but a smaller majority than Clinton has right now and there’s talk about more recounts. It’s amazing you never hear freakouts about voter fraud from card-carrying Dems.

        Voter apathy is a problem, but I’m not totally convinced greater voter turnout would keep people like him out of office. I would love to be proven wrong, though, as there’s nothing I’d like more than gaining a little more faith in the average member of the public.

If you don’t believe that big money has become Machiavellian, then your eyes are closed and you are living in denial. Paranoia under certain circumstances is quite rational. It’s all about the money, and greed has no conscience.

The right wing nutz, fueled by equal parts of ignorance and anger, can be counted on to get out there and vote. It’s one thing they are good at. Progressives need to learn to be just as good at it!

          • Anthony Blanche

            Doesn’t apply to my district. You can damn near count the Democrats on one hand.

    So if he has a snowball, therefore hell IS frozen over.

  • SuspectedDemocrat

    Come and try that in California.

    Before my dad died, and he was undergoing chemo, some days he felt great, and asked me to take him to a movie, or for coffee. I never once felt to urge to congratulate him on beating cancer because of how he felt on one day. There’s a reason the news announces, ‘News, Weather and Sports’, and not ‘News, Climate and Sports.’

    We are utterly doomed. if any form of civilization survives in the future they will regard this incident with the same shocked astonishment that history gives Caligula naming his horse as co-counsel.
    either the man is certifiable or figures he’ll be safely dead by the time the worst effects come along.

    I think Sen. Inhofe’s real complaint is that somebody sold him a SnoKone with no brightly colored sugar syrup on it.

      or cone to hold it in

  • Rickyphoo

    Stupid or Pandering. You decide.

      ¿por qué no los dos?

    Using this logic, the drought must be over in California…rain predicted for LA over the weekend.

  • michiganhunter

    Any word on whether VP Biden caught the snowball?

  • Meegan King

    Yeah, I think the snowball fell through that hole in the ozone, Senator…

  • Virginia Dreaming

    Inhofe has a snowball’s chance in hell of proving that global warming is false because it snowed in Washington, D.C.

  • Guest

    The senator’s is BS flavored.

    According to a recent LA Times article, Al Gore bought a $9 million house in Montecito, CA. That’s on the COAST of California. If he’s so convinced of global warming and the coasts being swamped by the rising seas, why did he buy a house that will soon be under water due to global warming?? Can you say, “hypocrisy?” Sure you can. You are paying for that house through your carbon taxes. The global warming con men’s brazen approach would make Bernie Madoff blush.

    • Dylan

      Because that’ll happen in our lifetimes. Al Gore is really just retelling the Biblical myth of Noah, where a massive deluge fell over 40 days and flooded the entire earth.

      Or maybe he’s talking about the effect of climate change on our planet for the next few thousand years and his lovely little coastal home will be safe for the foreseeable future. From floods at least.

    • noneyo_getit_0011232

      Did you bother to check the elevation of the property? Or whether they took any number of precautions that can make a coastal property a solid investment?

      There far more serious issues at play than having the coast creep in 5 feet. It is called “climate change” because it can turn a temperate climate into something else, or turn central plains into no longer usuable farm land. Bottom line: There is no scientific body of national or international standing… NONE… that disputes the conclusion we are living in a warming world and humans are the primary cause.

      THIS SHOULD NOT BE A POLITICAL ISSUE!!! As a scientist I am disgusted by the way both sides (including non-scientist “activists” with liberal arts degrees) have turned it into one. Don’t mind us who actually study this stuff… have whatever BS argument you want to but when you are actually serious about planning for the future let us know… cause right now things are looking pretty bad.

      BTW Conservatives… we (scientists) don’t have the luxury of ever saying “told you so” because if we end up saying it that means we failed to give enough warning.

      • Zomin8tor

        Follow the money, dude. And by the way, if you are a scientist, I think you are correct to pretend to believe in this hoax. Let’s face it, you guys are getting TONS of grant money for boondoggles to the Arctic and all kinds of exotic places. Did you hear about the global warming scientist who got stuck in the Antarctic in his bunker-oil fueled polluter-ship and how he had to be pulled off the ship with polluting helicopters and put onto another bunker-oil fueled pollutership? Kudos to you for your chutzpah! Shame on you for ripping off the hard-working middle class taxpayers. BTW, so Algore said, nine years ago, that in ten years the earth will be scorched. Mr. Scientist, how do you explain that, in fact the entire earth is NOT a scorched wasteland as Algore predicted? It might be a hundredth of a degree hotter, but its not scorched. Also, the New York Times predicted that there would be no more snow due to global warming. In fact, we had lots of snow as you might have read about. We skeptics are skeptical for good reason. There is a lot of misinformation (ie, lies) put out for public consumption. And there are a lot of people making fortunes off of we working people. Also, why did Obama give China a ten year hiatus on fixing their pollution problem while at the same time crippling the US economy with punitive carbon taxes? Have you been to Beijing? It makes 70s-era polluted LA look like a clean room.

          1. His name is Al Gore or were you rage typing and just couldn’t bother with the space?
          2. He never said that – not in that way at least. What he was trying to say was that the consequences of emitting greenhouse gases would be felt far into the future so if we didn’t reign in emissions in the next ten years then we would be in danger of passing dangerous tipping points from which we could not recover.
          3. Um, have you looked at California’s water situation and the entire southwest lately? It’s pretty darn screwed up by a very long term drought that looks like it isn’t going away any time soon.

    • cinesimonj

      Al Gore bought a house on the coast – therefore science is an anti-freedom conspiracy of hundreds of thousands of scientists the world over.

  • noneyo_getit_0011232

    I am desperately hoping the Senator is playing to an uneducated base… because the idea that someone this scientifically/mathematically uneducated is a Senator is truly horrifying.

    The whole point of statistics is that human beings are very, very bad at distinguishing coincidences from statistically significant observations… it is called the placebo effect in medicine. That is the whole point of using mathematically sound methods to decide how improbable something is… that is why scientists are looking at numbers and not their “blunt observations”. The numbers and statistics are not matters of opinion… they simply are.

    I will never forgive environmentalists (most of whom are non-scientists) for hopelessly politicizing the issue of climate change. It should never have become political and now you have conservatives in a place where they can’t back down. The senator will always find a snowball in the US even if he has to go to Alaska… or his freezer.
