Senator Inhofe has been one of the most conservative members of the Senate since his election in 1994. He is very religious and has based his support of Israel on God's word in the Bible. His opposition to climate change is also Biblically based—he thinks it is arrogant for humans to believe they can influence the climate while God is still in his heaven. The man is stupid beyond belief—even for a Republican senator.

Senator James Inhofe, famous for denouncing Climate Change as a hoax, admits that he used to believe Climate Change was true, until he learned how much it would cost to fight it.

Inhofe: Global warming too costly to be real

In short, learning about the (supposed) high cost of the solution is what turned him from a believer in climate science to a denier.


Would he also decide that a cancer diagnosis is wrong if the treatment was too expensive?

Ruth, that's a great table.  It really shows the impact of some of our choices.  Cars and homes are such a big deal, it makes some of the other choices seem minor.  But it all adds up.

I like to think about some of the other side of it too - getting some carbon credits.  Planting trees.  Changing lawns to trees shrubs and xeroscapes.  Painting the roof white.  Moving closer to work.

I would multiply the "one vegetarian meal per week" by 21, so it's 3 meals daily, 7 days a week.  But that's just me.  It would make it >8,000 pounds, if the math translates (breakfast is different from supper).   Also, eat home prepared vs. driving somewhere to eat.
