Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) is the nation's most prominent global warming denier. He famously declared that global warming is "the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people." Now, he's taken the argument a step further. In an interview with Tulsa World, Inhofe compared people who believed global warming was a problem to Nazis:
Inhofe added that every claim in An Inconvenient Truth "has been refuted scientifically." He also admitted he'd never seen the movie.
UPDATE: Inhofe also compared An Inconvenient Truth to Hitler's book, Mein Kampf.
When us reality-based types compare criminals who start illegal wars, spy on and lock up citizens without due process, and stomp all over the 1st Amendment, just for starters, with Nazis, we're accused of being waaaay over the line.
Apparently when a nutjob Republican from an oil-producing state calls us Nazis for believing some science that might hurt his constituency of major donors' bottom line (let alone wreck the planet), that's OK.
Note to Oklahomeys: Dab a loop on this cat and get rid of his whacko ass.
