Why bother with science when you can make up your own "fake" facts?
We are referring to former Tulsa mayor (alas) and current U.S. senator, Jim Inhofe, the same Jim Inhofe who claims that global warming and climate change are hoaxes. Too bad Inhofe's politically motivated wishful thinking keeps getting knocked down by actual science. (Example: here)
The record heat wave in the Sooner state this summer isn't helping—Oklahoma's heat has been off the charts.
As Sooners know all too well, it's been well over 100 degrees for days on end this summer in many Oklahoma towns and cities, causing major headaches for Oklahoma's agricultural sector. In plainer language, the excessive heat has wilted the crops.
Meanwhile, Sen. Inhofe is still certain that he's right and all the climate scientists with their fancy charts and computers and statistical trends and stuff are so wrong. In fact, Inhofe's anti-science attitude has become increasingly embarrassing, as we document here.
P.S.—Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin earlier this summer asked Oklahomans to pray for rain, as if we—the good people of the Sooner state—could simply petition the Lord for relief and, presto, He would deliver life-giving rain to His Chosen People.
We probably need to brush up on our theology, but we don't think this is how God works.
