Credentials

  • BA, Economics, University of Tulsa, 1973. [1], [2]

Background 

Senator Inhofe is the senior Senator from Oklahoma and a member of the Republican Party. He is a ranking majority member and Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. [3]

According to Oilchange International, Inhofe has received over $2 million in political contributions from the coal and oil industry. One of his top contributors is Koch Industries ($77,550 since 1999). ExxonMobil has contributed over $35,000 since 1999. [4]

In 2003, the Natural Resources Defense Council noted that Inhofe “scored zero with the League of Conservation Voters since 1997, was the only senator to oppose Everglades restoration, and once compared the Environmental Protection Agency to the Gestapo.” [5]

Inhofe has made regular speeches opposing global warming, and has voted in favor of big oil companies on many oil-related bills. [6]

Stance on Climate Change 

Inhofe has been described as “the first person to stand up and say this global warming is the greatest hoax that has been perpetrated.” [7]

2015

“The debate on man-driven climate change is not over. Alarmists are distracting Americans from the pain the Obama administration's regulations will inflict on our economy while failing to make a significant impact on climate change.

Let's not forget the words of MIT atmospheric physicist Richard Lindzen, who said carbon regulation is a bureaucrat's dream because 'if you control carbon, you control life.'” [8]

2003

“I have offered compelling evidence that catastrophic global warming is a hoax. That conclusion is supported by the painstaking work of the nation's top climate scientists.” [9]

The scientists that Inhofe mentioned include: Fred Singer, Richard Lindzen, David Wojick, Roy Spencer, John Christy, Paul Reiter, David Legates, Willie Soon, Sallie Baliunas, Frederick Sietz, as well as the signatories of both the Heidelberg Appeal and the Oregon Petition[9]

    Key Quotes

    September 1, 2016

    Inhofe spoke against President Obama joining the UN's global warming treaty: [10]

    History already shows that this Paris Agreement will fail. This latest announcement is the president attempting to once again give the international community the appearance that he can go around Congress in order to achieve his unpopular and widely rejected climate agenda for his legacy.” [10]

    July, 2016

    “My own granddaughter came home one day and said … ‘Popi, why is it you don’t understand global warming?’ I did some checking, and Eric, the stuff that they teach our kids nowadays, they are brainwash — you have to un-brainwash them when they get out […]” [11]

    April, 2016

    “[C]limate change policies come at a high economic cost while having no actual impact on the climate change.” [12]

    February, 2016

    James Inhofe blamed the Flint water crisis on President Obama's “global warming agenda”: [13]

    “As a result of misplaced priorities of President Obama, who has consistently failed to partner with the states to address our nation’s real needs, stories are emerging in East Los Angeles, Baltimore, communities across Ohio, and elsewhere about lead pipes and other infrastructure problems that put the health of our citizens at risk.  In my leadership role on the EPW Committee, I have watched the Obama administration prioritize more than $120 billion for the president’s global warming agenda at the expense of real investment in critical infrastructure.” [13]

    August, 2013 — Mike Huckabee's Radio Show:

    “You have to have CO2. It's a form of fertilizer to grow things. It's actually sought after in many cases.” [14]
    “We went into a leveling-out period about eight years ago.” [14]
    “We go through these 30 year cycles.” [14]

    March, 2012

    “Genesis 8:22 that I use [in The Greatest Hoax] is that as long as the Earth remains there will be springtime, harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night. My point is, God's still up there, and the arrogance of people who think that we, human beings, would be able to change what he is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.” [15]

    February, 2011

    ”[…] for the alarmists, global warming has nothing to do with science or scientific inquiry. Science is not about the inquiry to discover truth, but a mask to achieve an ideological agenda. For some, this issue has become a secular religion, pure and simple.” [16]

    July, 2010

    On the subject of environmental groups: “To me it seems that it is more important to the leadership of these groups to turn their once laudable movement into a political machine by sending out their partisan snake-oil salesmen and misleading the American public regarding their purely politically partisan agenda under the guise of environmental protection. [17]

    “With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it.” [17]

    November, 2007

    “The Kyoto Protocol has no environmental benefits; natural variability, not fossil fuel emissions, is the overwhelming factor influencing climate change; satellite data, confirmed by NOAA balloon measurements, confirms that no meaningful warming has occurred over the last century; and climate models predicting dramatic temperature increases over the next 100 years are flawed and highly imperfect.” [18]

    “Thus far no one has seriously demonstrated any scientific proof that increased global temperatures would lead to the catastrophes predicted by alarmists. In fact, it appears that just the opposite is true: that increases in global temperatures may have a beneficial effect on how we live our lives.” [18]

    Key Deeds

    September 20, 2016

    Senatore Inhofe released a majority committee report on the EPA and Army Corps, contending they are overreaching their authority under the Clean Water Act with their changes to the Waters of the United States (WOTUS) definition. [19], [20]

    According to the EPA, the rule will ensure “waters protected under the Clean Water Act are more precisely defined and predictably determined, making permitting less costly, easier, and faster for businesses and industry.” The rule is grounded in law and the latest science, and is shaped by public input. “ [21]

    For the water in the rivers and lakes in our communities that flow to our drinking water to be clean, the streams and wetlands that feed them need to be clean too,” said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy. “Protecting our water sources is a critical component of adapting to climate change impacts like drought, sea level rise, stronger storms, and warmer temperatures – which is why EPA and the Army have finalized the Clean Water Rule to protect these important waters, so we can strengthen our economy and provide certainty to American businesses.”  [21]

    September 1, 2016

    Inhofe spoke against President Obama joining the UN's global warming treaty.  Inhofe's full statement, published at the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, reproduced below:  [10], [22]

    History already shows that this Paris Agreement will fail. Half of the countries that were legally bound to the Kyoto Protocol treaty failed to adhere to their pledges, and the host country of Japan even increased their carbon emissions. Now we find ourselves celebrating an agreement where the world’s largest carbon emitter, China, is permitted to increase their emissions until 2025 and to continue bringing a coal-fired power plant online every 10 days. We even turn a blind eye to the fact that China lied about its carbon emissions when it first came to the table with its pledge last year. It’s no wonder Americans will never support this deal, especially when our president promises unrealistic and economically harmful emission reductions of up to 28 percent that will send more jobs overseas and reduce our global competitiveness in the marketplace. This latest announcement is the president attempting to once again give the international community the appearance that he can go around Congress in order to achieve his unpopular and widely rejected climate agenda for his legacy. The Senate does not support the Paris Agreement, which is why his administration prefers to not call it a treaty, and the centerpiece of the president’s emission reduction commitments, the Clean Power Plan, is on shaky legal ground, which the United States Supreme Court recently affirmed. Furthermore, environmental groups and industry agree that the U.S. commitments made under the Paris Agreement cannot be met with regulations and would require legislation from Congress that will never pass.”

    July 27, 2016

    James Inhofe went on conservative talk radio where he told radio host Eric Metaxas that  that schools were “brainwashing” children about climate change. [23]

    Right Wing Watch has the full audio available (listen below), but here is the line where Inhofe expresses his view: [11]

    “My own granddaughter came home one day and said … ‘Popi, why is it you don’t understand global warming?’ I did some checking, and Eric, the stuff that they teach our kids nowadays, they are brainwash — you have to un-brainwash them when they get out […]”

    April 21, 2016

    Under Senator Inhofe's guidance, the EPW Majority released a white paper contending that the Paris climate agreement will fail (PDF). [24]

    On the same day, Inhofe published a piece in the New York Post Titled “Earth Day Marks the Composting of the Global Climate Deal.” Inhofe concludes: [25]

    “The Paris Agreement faces insurmountable problems ahead, with the most obvious being that the United States can’t follow through on President Obama’s commitment and may even withdraw its support with a new president come January.

    The message could not be clearer to the international community: the Paris Agreement is not only misguided. It was also a waste of everyone’s time.” [25]

    December 7, 2015

    Sen. James (Jim) Inhofe delivered a video keynote address at the Heartland/CEI/CFACTDay of Examining the Data” climate science denial gathering in Paris during COP21. Other climate science deniers at the “Day of Examining the Data,” included: S. Fred Singer, Christopher Monckton, James Taylor, Patrick Moore, Wolfgang Müller, Robert Carter, Christopher Essex, and Willie Soon. [26], [27]

    In his address, Sen. Inhofe promised the assembled deniers that the United Nations COP21 summit would fail as prior international summit attempts had. (Days later, world leaders from nearly 200 nations agreed to the historic Paris climate agreement.) [28]

    “Past COPs have revealed that these meetings are not meant to produce anything substantive, and I promise you that the COP21 will follow suit. Nothing's gonna happen.” [Video at 4:57-5:10] [26]

    June 11-12, 2015

    James Inhofe was a speaker at the Heartland Institute’s Tenth International Conference on Climate Change (ICCC10) in Washington, D.C. [29]

    View James Inhofe’s Opening Keynote presentation at the Heartland Institute’s ICCC10, below: [26]

    EcoWatch reports that Inhofe spoke against Pope Francis's involvement in the climate change debate: [30]

    “Everyone is going to ride the Pope now. Isn’t that wonderful,” said Inhofe sarcastically. “The Pope ought to stay with his job, and we’ll stay with ours.”

    “I am not going to talk about the Pope,” he said, immediately after doing so. “Let him run his shop, and we’ll run ours.” [30]

    March, 2015

    Senator James Inhofe brought a snowball onto the Senate floor as a prop to show that climate change isn't occuring. As reported by ThinkProgress, the snowball brought some ridicule to the Senator, even from the Republican party. [31]

    Nicole Wallace, former communications chief and senior advisor for the McCain-Palin campaign under George Bush, spoke out against it:  “The weather is changing…. It’s terrible for the Republican Party to look like we can’t acknowledge reality,” she said. “But it is moronic to throw snow in the Capitol and say, I don’t know, I don't think anything is changing.”  [31]

    August 19, 2013

    Senator Inhofe called into Mike Huckabee's radio show to discuss conspiracy theories on global warming. [14]

    According to the Huffington Post, Inhofe's appearance was “mostly a chance for him to rehash bad science on global warming” including claims such as: (audio below) [14]

    • We go through these 30-year cycles.” 
    • We went into a leveling-out period about eight years ago.” 
    • You have to have CO2. It’s a form of fertilizer to grow things. It’s actually sought after in many cases.”

    March 3, 2011

    Introduced the Energy Tax Prevention Act of 2011, a bill designed to limit the authority of the EPA over industry's greenhouse gas emissions. While the bill was introduced, it was not enacted. [32]

    Dec, 2009

    Inhofe appeared at the International Climate Conference on Copenhagen to spread the message that “Global warming is a hoax, and there’s no way the Senate is going to pass a cap-and-trade bill.” [33]

    Dec 20, 2007

    Inhofe released a report claiming that over 400 scientists disputed man-made global warming. [34]

    Senator Inhofe's list has since been debunked, and shown to include many individuals with no experience in climate science. [35]

    July 28, 2003

    Made a floor speech titled “The Science of Climate Change.” [18]

    Inhofe was later criticized for misrepresenting the views of climatologist Stephen Schneider and meteorologist Tom Wigley in his speech. [36]

    Inhofe had claimed that calculations published by Schneider in the journal Nature “cast serious doubt” on the IPCC's upper-end projection of 5.8 degrees (Celsius) of warming by 2100. [36]

    Schneider wrote, “It is misrepresenting my views to characterize them as even implying that IPCC has exaggerated or failed to describe the state of the science fairly.” McCain quoted this line to Inhofe on the Senate floor on October 29, 2003. Yet in response to the Prospect, Inhofe's staff made no mention of Schneider's thorough critique. [36]

    October 4, 2004

    Inhofe made a floor Speech, titled “Partisan Environmental Groups” where he accused environmental groups of having “more interest in hyping apocalyptic environmental scenarios to raise money for raw political purposes rather than working together to improve our environment for the benefit of all Americans.” [17]

    January 4, 2005 

    Made a floor speech titled “Climate Change Update.” He critiqued the Mann hockey strick graph, saying how it had “severely underestimated past climate variability… . In other words, in obliterating the Medieval Warming Period and the Little Ice Age, Mann's hockey stick just doesn't pass muster.[37]

    Inhofe also quotes George Taylor,  “has shown, Arctic temperatures are actually slightly cooler today than they were in the 1930s.” [37]

    April 8, 2005 

    Made a floor speech, titled  ”First 'Four Pillars'.” Inhofe describes the four pillars as: [16]

    1) the 2001 National Academy of Sciences NAS report summarizing the latest science of climate change, requested by the Bush Administration;

    2) the scientific work of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, most especially its Third Assessment Report, released in 2001;

    3) the recent report of the international Arctic Climate Impact Assessment;

    and 4) the data produced by climate models.” 

    Inhofe claims that he will prove that “none of these pillars support the consensus view.” [16]

    December, 2009 

    Jim Inhofe vowed to crash the UN Climate Change Conference with a three man “truth squad” consisting of himself and two fellow Senators. He was unsuccessful in securing a single meeting with conference delegates. [38]

    April 28, 2004

    Inhofe was honored for his “work in promoting science-based public policy” by the Annapolis Center for Science-Based Public Policy, a think-tank that disputes man-made global warming. [39]

    The Annapolis center has received $1,048,500 from ExxonMobil since 1998. [40]

    September 28, 2005

    Inhofe introduced a Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works hearing titled “The Role of Science in Environmental Policy-Making.” [41]

    In his opening statement, Inhofe states that “Too often the environmental policy decisions made by EPA and other science-based agencies are driven by political or personal agendas.”  [41]

    2000

    Inhofe was a co-plaintiff in a lawsuit filed by the Competitive Enterprise Institute in 2000, trying to bar the distribution or use of the National Assessment, which analyzed potential impacts of climate change on the U.S. The Bush administration settled the lawsuit with a statement saying that the report didn't represent official government policy. [36]
