As reported on “The Hill”, “Inhofe Hurls Snowball on Senate Floor“, Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe doesn’t understand the difference between “weather” and “climate”.
Inhofe seems to be suggesting that because it’s cold outside where he is, it can’t possibly be warm elsewhere. 2014 was, indeed, the hottest year ever recorded. Inhofe’s inane theatrics and inability to understand basic science can’t change that.
It’s normally difficult to sentence somebody for being stupid, however it’s quite easy to do so for somebody this proud of being stupid. Inhofe is convicted with Dumbassery in the First Degree. For his sentence he will spend a week in drought-ridden California (currently experiencing the hottest winter on record) where he will presumably stand drooling and gibbering, amazed at the lack of snow in Winter.
