Huffington Post takes aim at Inhofe "the Social Dinosaur"

Corporate dinosaur or caveman?Uber-blog, Huffington Post, has a great piece today on Senator James Inhofe's latest tirade against the realities of climate change.

Most memorable Inhofe quote:

“I want to challenge the news media to reverse course and report on the objective science of climate change, stop ignoring legitimate voices in this scientific debate, and stop being used by the hysterical left,” said Inhofe. “Breaking the cycles of media hysteria will not be easy since hysteria sells and it is very profitable, but I really believe the issue is getting worn out.”

The only thing worn out is Inhofe's views on climate change. As the evidence of human-induced climate change mounts, Inhofe, Chair of the Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works, continues to keeps his head well-buried in the sand. Not surprising when you consider that Inhofe's sub-committee on climate change chooses to play host to the testimony of the likes of Bjorn Lomborg, James Connaughton, Michael Crichton, William Gray, and Heartland Institute's Joseph Bast.

While most of the environmental movement was (rightfully) focusing attention on stopping the Keystone XL tar sands export pipeline from crossing over one of the most vital aquifers in the U.S., the dirty energy industry was quietly building a network of...
