Inhofe vs. climate change

(Continued)

Ada —

 Michael Crichton, Inhofe says, was more than a fiction writer. He was a scientist and a medical doctor who held degrees from Harvard College and Harvard Medical School. He was a visiting lecturer in physical anthropology at Cambridge University and a postdoctoral fellow at the Salk Institute. Dr. Crichton set out to write a frightening book on global warming and, after extensively researching the subject, completely changed its tone. State of Fear instead lavishes attention on the political scare tactics and flimsy science that make up the movement.

Crichton, you might remember, publicly said climate change alarmist Al Gore was wrong.

And speaking of Gore, Inhofe relates an incident in which he pointedly asked the former vice president if he was willing to do what his movie, An Inconvenient Truth, asked of its patrons. In other words, would Al Gore change the way he lives?

Inhofe says Gore’s eventual answer was, “No.”

This hypocrisy is perhaps the most galling part of the hysteria surrounding the issue. Gore and his host of Hollywood acolytes are not about to give up their standards of living. They just want you and me to surrender ours.

  • For unto us a child is born

    A lot of folks don’t believe in the hereafter, but it’s one of the most certain things there is. There is going to be something here after you are gone.  Two are working in a field: One is taken; one is left. The world just keeps on turning, marrying and giving in marriage.

    If you count the area most of us consider to be Ada, our community is roughly the same size as Newtown, Conn. where a deranged 20 year old snuffed out the lives of 26 innocents, including 20 children.

  • A better use of the Mayan calendar

     

    Few things are more disturbing than predictions of the end of the world. Not because there’s any validity to them. As Hank Hanegraaff, The Bible Answer Man says, end time predictions are notable only because they are 100 percent wrong, 100 percent of the time.

  • Tom Cole Report shows continuing challenges

    The last unemployment report to be released before the election reiterates how far we have to go to reach pre-recession levels of prosperity.  The 7.9 percent unemployment rate recorded for October is up slightly from September’s 7.8 percent.  Even more discouraging, it is slightly higher than the 7.8 percent recorded when President Obama first took office while the recession was at its peak.
