James Inhofe: An Introduction To "The Senator With The Snowball" (Information Kept AWAY From The General Public Of Oklahoma!)

We have some politicians here in Oklahoma that are seen as somewhat crazy to most of the country. This is a basic overview covering one of them, James Inhofe.

'The Senator with the snowball'Senator James Inhofe brought a snowball into the senate chamber as a visual aid in his argument against global warming, but Senator Sheldon Whitehouse took to the floor to slam "the senator with the snowball," and then joined All In to talk about it. 


As global temperatures rise, with 97% of scientists looking at and studying the data declaring that we have a a situation of global warming, to say that it's not a problem because your particular constituency hasn't been effected yet is crazy. Your job is to help the people not con them. With Texas underwater... where do you think everyone will move to?

If 10 out of 11 kids get the measles and you point to the one kid that doesn't have the measles as a sign that the measles is not contagious...that is acting crazy;

Warmest year on record just means based on all our many decades of scientific data that we have collected shows that this is the warmest year on record. In other words, we (our scientists) have been observing for many years that our global temperatures are going up, especially in the oceans. In statistics, a basic requirement for any economics or science student, if you can show a pattern in the data you collect that means there is a trend. You may debate what the trend means (at least initially), but to deny the trend perpetually, to the point where you have to shut your ears off and pretend you can't even understand scientists by saying "I am not a scientist", is a serious case of denial. At the very least James Inhofe needs psychiatric care.

Climate Change Debate: Last Week Tonight with John Oliver (HBO)


As Oliver explains, the only way to make the "climate change debate" accurate (if media manipulation to the debate were removed - which nowadays is only Fox) is to use representative samples rather than the tradition of using one person = one view no matter who that person is or how many credentials they lack...

He gets the three people (to represent 3% of the population) that media (fox) amplifies to pull this con.

To illustrate the dichotomy one of the non-experts who has a weird view based on no science says his view (like a religious person might argue the earth is flat when Galileo was around)...

Then Oliver turns to the EXPERTS (the professionals with degrees, who spend their lives studying this phenomenon) and gets an almost unanimous agreement that the scientific evidence for human caused climate change is very real indeed...

The Republicans brutish (somewhat savage/uncivilized and uneducated) position...

Reminds me of this "joke"...

Believe it or not...this is the transcript of an actual radio conversation between a US naval ship and Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. The Radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on Oct. 10, 1995.
US Ship: Please divert your course 0.5 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.
CND reply: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.
US Ship: This is the Captain of a US Navy Ship. I say again, divert your course.
CND reply: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course!
CND reply: This is a lighthouse. Your call.

Note: Infowars is using the same tactic as Fox News & The GOP, i.e. finding one quack to base policy off of rather than the rest of the professionals in the entire profession
