In a radio interview with the Voice of Christian Youth America, Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) cited the Bible as proof that global warming is a hoax. Inhofe, who has received $1,352,523 in contributions from the oil and gas industries, including $90,950 from Koch Industries, was promoting his book "The Greatest Hoax: How Global Warming Threatens Your Future." He criticized the "arrogance" of stating that anyone other than God can affect the climate. Listen to the views of this member of the U.S. Senate Environment Committee:
INHOFE: Well, actually, the Genesis 8:22 that I use in [my book] is that “as long as the Earth remains, there will be springtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night.” My point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.
