Inhofe's media bias claim innacurate, bordering outright falsehood

In his climate-change ain't happening State of the Union speech of Sept. 25th, Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) makes the claim that climate change “skeptic” scientists do not get a fair share of media coverage.

Inhofe states:

“Scientists like MIT's Richard Lindzen, former Colarado State Climatologist Roger Pielke, the University of Alabama's Roy Spencer, and John Christy, Virginia State Climatologist Patrick Michaels, Colorado State University's William Grey, atmospehric physicist Fred Singer, Willie Soon, Oregon State Climatologist George Taylor [and] astrophysicist Sallie Baliuna, just to name a few. But you never hear of them.The media never talks about these well-established scientists.”

CNN: Inhofe is "all alone on Capital Hill"

CNN hits back at Sen. James Inhofe's speech earlier this week in which he challenged the media by claiming that, “During the past year, the American people have been served up an unprecedented parade of environmental alarmism by the media and entertainment industry.”

Among CNN's best retorts to Inhofe's claims is this one: “Inhofe is all alone on Capital Hill these days, most Republicans believe that the scientific jury is in [on global warming].” Inhofe's Republican colleague, Rep. Christopher Shays states in the CNN rebuff that, “we have seen too much documentation to know that the world is getting warmer, we know that the ice shelves are melting and for him [Inhofe] to say otherwise just is like putting a bag over his head and not seeing it.”

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.
