Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Oklahoma), the chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee who recently brought a snowball to Congress to prove global warming isn’t real, cited the scripture in his most recent book on climate change.
"I take my religion seriously," Inhofe wrote. "[T]his is what a lot of alarmists forget: God is still up there, and He promised to maintain the seasons and that cold and heat would never cease as long as the earth remains.”
Inhofe quoted one of his “favorite Bible verses," Genesis 8:22, to back up his claim. The verse reads, “As long as the earth remains, There will be springtime and harvest, Cold and heat, winter and summer.”
In a radio interview, Inhofe said it was ridiculous that scientists continue to address global warming. "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," he said.
The Environment and Public Works Committee that Inhofe chairs is responsible for dealing with environmental issues and infrastructure.
