This is on the heals of some other very misleading and exaggerated claims by Inhofe, such as:
On Tom Brokaw's recent climate change documentary: “It kind of reminds … I could use the Third Reich, the big lie”
His 2003 claim on the floor of the U.S. Congress that global warming is “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.”
Not to worry though Inhofe is only the Chairman of the Senate Committee for the Environment and Public Works.
