Curmudgeon Inhofe throws himself in path of upcoming Live Earth concert

One of the most exciting outcomes of the mid-term election thrashing of the Republicans was that we'd no longer have to listen to the outrageous ranting of Senator Jim “global warming is a hoax” Inhofe as the Chair of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. Unfortunate for us, Inhofe is still getting quite a bit of ink as the minority chair of the EPW.

Unfortunately for Inhofe, he is having to take more and more desperate actions to get his global warming denier message out to the public.

Climate change and poverty go hand in hand, expert says

British economists have urged India to battle climate change, saying vulnerability to the phenomenon goes hand in hand with poverty . Dimitri Zenghelis, lead author of the Stern Review, which examined the costs and benefits of climate change moderation, said there is 90 per cent recognition of climate change in the developed world compared with only 50 per cent by developing countries.

James Inhofe: The Senator for Suspect Science

Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe got so beligerent with former Vice-President Al Gore at the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works last week that new Chair Barbara Boxer had to cut him off (check out the video at the end of this post).

That, presumably, is because Senator Inhofe is accustomed to a different quality of input in testimony before this committee. When he was chair, he preferred likeminded lobbyists (Joseph Bast, Heartland Institute, testimony here) and fiction writers (Michael Chrichton, testimony here) as witnesses to committee hearings.

Global warming heats up in the Arctic

The U.S. Geological Survey estimates the Arctic holds some 25 per cent of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas, among other resources, and the melting of the Polar ice cap due to human-induced climate change is accelerating the stampede for riches. It's a catastrophic scenario for the Arctic ecosystem, for polar bears and other wildlife, and for Inuit populations whose ancient cultures depend on frozen waters.
