Senator Inhoff (R-Oklahoma) has been an outspoken critic of the global science consensus (not unanimity) on the human contribution to global warming of the atmosphere. there is nothing that can be said or discovered that would get him to change his view. By calling it a hoax he suggests that the scientific community is out to lie to the public for its financial benefit. Hogwash I say. his stance on global warming is equivalent to those people centuries ago who thought the earth was flat. it seems their ancestors are alive and well in the US tea party wing of Congress.
