Tulsa's own Jim Inhofe is making energy news again. Naturally, it's not good news for Oklahoma or, more importantly, the environment.
Sen. Inhofe, you may recall, has made a fool of himself for years as a environmental denier, criticizing anything that smacks of seriousness regarding the environment. With Inhofe, the whole idea of environmentalism is some sort of socialist plot to deny hard-working Americans their right to foul the earth as much as they want to.
Unlike Inhofe, AT is willing to follow the science wherever it leads. That sort of logic is lost on Sen. Jim, who has his mind made up. He has no use for science or scientists—why those guys are closet socialists too.
Inhofe's environmental recklessness and energy bravado has put him in a select group of lawmakers—people who keep the U.S. from making progress on energy and the environment. This list, published by The Daily Beast, includes a telling slideshow, complete with embarrassing details.
