Jim Inhofe Brings Naked Al Gore Prop To Senate Floor (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) addressed climate change on the Senate floor Monday, bringing along with him an unusual prop -- a naked Al Gore poster.

Climate change denial has become a become a routine subject for Inhofe, the man who was disappointed not to top Rolling Stone's list of the "planet's worst enemies."

Earlier this week, he took the opportunity to bring another element into the debate -- an enlargement of last week's Weekly Standard cover article featuring a nude, cartoon version of Al Gore in the Arctic.

"As soon as he saw it, he knew he wanted to give a speech," an Inhofe spokesman said, according to Roll Call.

In the Senate address, Inhofe railed against Al Gore's warnings of the dangers of global warming, including a lengthy op-ed in the New York Times last month.

"Gore seems to be drowning in a sea of his own global warming illusions. Nevertheless, he's desperately trying to keep global warming alarmism alive today," Inhofe said. "The notion that anthropogenic gases are causing global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people," Inhofe continued, repeating a claim he made in 2003.

Inhofe continued: "When it comes to reform, when it comes to openness and transparency and peer review, when it comes to practicing good science, Gore stands alone. He wants the world to put its head in the sand and pretend nothing's happening."
