Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) didn't hold back while schooling his colleague, Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Ok.), about the reality of climate change.

Inhofe, who has previously stated he thinks climate change is "laughable" and a "hoax," blocked a Senate resolution acknowledging climate change is real on Tuesday. As ThinkProgress points out, that's when Whitehouse jumped in to give Inhofe a lesson in science.

“I appreciate very much having had the opportunity to hear those words, from what I can only describe as an alternate reality, from the one that I inhabit anyway," Whitehouse said after Inhofe's remarks.
