Just when it appeared we had achieved consensus that climate change was a major threat to our health and our communities, enter Inhofe and his supporters to launch us back to a worldview when the Earth was flat and tobacco smoke was good for you. Come January, God help us.

Barbra Streisand Is the Mastermind Behind a Gay, Liberal Conspiracy to Make Us Believe Climate Change Is Real

I am gay, so I was required to worship La Streisand when I signed up for my Gay Card. But now that Sen. Inhofe has opened my eyes to her devilry, I am disappointed in my diva. I feel safer knowing that the senator may take over the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.

Inhofe's Greatest Climate Change Denial Hits

Robert Lanham | Posted 11.12.2014 | Green

As you've likely heard, Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe -- author of "The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future" -- is the Republicans' first choice to head the Senate committee that oversees the country's environmental policy.

Post Election: The Good, The Bad and the Future

The President has a vision of what he wants the world to look like for his daughters and their children -- and it isn't B-Roll from Interstellar. Oh, and just in case he falters, there are those at the grassroots level who will remain vigilant... because they don't want future generations to be living in a science fiction movie.

No matter where you stand on the issues, you must concede that there will be extreme gridlock for the next two years: Congress will block President Obama's appointments, while in turn the president will use up a lot of ink with a steady stream of vetoes when Congress passes bills to undermine his agenda.

Under the Republican Congress, All Environmental Politics Will Be Local

Since there hasn't been any new U.S. federal environmental law in nearly a quarter century, I do not expect the productivity of the new Congress to be any worse than the old one.

The pack is out of session for the next seven weeks campaigning for another term. So perhaps this is a good time to get a little reflective and sentimental before campaign season really heats up in October.

Climate Change You Can Believe In

Bill Moyers | Posted 11.19.2014 | Politics
Bill Moyers

We know it's important not to confuse day-to-day weather patterns with climate, which measure variations of things like temperatures and humidity over long periods of time, but it's clear that these disasters are made more powerful by global warming. The pain is only going to get worse for us and for future generations, unless we act now.

Though the winds often come sweeping down the plains in Oklahoma, they have not blown hard enough to clear away the misguided, misleading views of Sen. James Inhofe. Inhofe is a top ranking Dirty Denier because of his campaign funding from dirty sources and his terrible votes against the environment.

Do my party's leaders have the ears to hear? Do they even wonder why GOP refugees don't flock to us? Can they see through their own prejudices, which often slap a Pat Robertson mask on people like me?

A Senator's One-Fingered Salute to America's Military Leaders

William S. Becker

Let's hope that the tide soon washes away not only skepticism, but also the skeptics who for one reason or another refuse to accept reality.
