For the first time in 3 years, the Senate held a hearing on the science of global warming. Inhofe in his opening statement stated: I must say it feels like we're back to the good old days. It may be hard to believe, but it was in February of 2009, during the height of the global warming alarmist movement, that this committee last held a hearing on global warming science. Back then we heard promises from the Obama administration of a clean energy revolution with green jobs propped up by billions in taxpayer dollars to companies like Solyndra. What came of all those promises? The global warming movement has completely collapsed and cap-and-trade is dead and gone.
Part 1 - On the Floor of the United States Senate on August 1, Senator Inhofe welcomed the renewed interest by his colleagues in global warming science. Inhofe noted it had been years since anyone dared talk about global warming on the Senate floor and provided a rebuttal to several claims made by alarmists.
