Senator Jim Inhofe Is Our Cymbal-Playing Performer Of The Week.

Senator Jim Inhofe:  The Cymbal Playing Monkey In The RoomSome people thrive on negative attention. Senator Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma is perfect example. His irrational effort to hoaxify global warming and climate change is fact-defying and all part of his performance to frustrate the movement. Inhofe is a fossil-fuel bought bad guy who welcomes the boos because he knows he’ll never get the cheers.

At a recent Senate committee meeting on the environment and public works, Sen. Inhofe got on his soap-box again and acted like an industry-tool. He continued with his climate change denying message while pushing for more drilling. George Monbiot of the Guardian wrote about how protecting the environment will always hit a wall as long as politicians, like Inhofe, are in the back-pocket of corporations.

Angry looking Stay Puft Marshmallow ManWe feel like any effort to limit what corporations and PACs can give to members of congress will never succeed. That’s why Jubbling has decided to fight back by going Inhofe-free for the next 30 60 days. We realize now that he’s kind of like the Stay Puft marshmallow man from the Ghostbusters movie and gets stronger from negative energy. If we all ignore Inhofe’s message, he’ll lose his power.

So, sorry Senator Inhofe but Jubbling’s done with you. Our feeling is that if we don’t react to your brand of sponsored crazy, you won’t be of any value to the folks feeding your re-election coffers. Without funding, you’ll go away. [Guardian]

Jim Inhofe Writes A Book. “The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future”

A over-tanned Senator Jim InhofeFortunately, I don’t read much and in the case of the new book from Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe, I probably don’t need to start because his book title says it all. If there was a Climate Denier Hall of Fame, Mr. Inhofe would be elected first ballot and that is why I sure hope he’ll live long enough (b. 1934) to write a follow up apology book. But I’m not holding my breath. Because today, even as the nation of Tuvalu goes underwater and global average temperatures continue to rise, he still holds onto his views, points to a freak snowstorm and will never admit that our actions contribute to global warming.

I guess that is what gets me about the whole climate debate – so much time is wasted trying to change minds that can only go one way. I want Mr. Inhofe to be right but the reality is that our climate is changing and we’re the only ones that might be able to slow it down. My recommendation: ignore the Inhofes of the world, do what you can to consume less resources and most of all, spend less time convincing. Time will tell but some [narrow] minds will never change.
