As liberals continue to disparage their conservative counterparts for ignoring the effects of climate change, one Republican has decided to wear the attacks as a badge of honor.
In a new documentary entitled Greedy Lying Bastards, Sen. James Inhofe is one of several politicians being accused of muddying up the climate change debate in a way that benefits the fossil fuels industry. His position isn’t painted as simply one that is based off a different interpretation of existing evidence, but rather as a purposeful misrepresentation being made in order to bury the true impact of climate change.
"I was not surprised to see myself front and center on the promotional material for this climate change movie," he told the Tulsa World (by way of the Huffington Post), "and quite frankly, I'm proud of it."
Inhofe is one of many Republicans who often refers to climate change as a hoax, and maintains that the weather changes cyclically regardless of what humans do.
"Ever since my first speech on this topic, I have found it astonishing how organizations have credited me capable of single-handedly bringing about the end of the world," Inhofe said in a statement.
Greedy Lying Bastards, executive produced by Daryl Hannah, was shown this past Friday to a small audience.
