WASHINGTON (CNN) – An Oklahoma senator, who claims climate change does not exist, brought a snowball onto the Senate floor as proof for his argument.
“In case we have forgotten, because we keep hearing that 2014 has been the warmest year on record,” said Sen. Jim Inhofe. “I ask the chair, do you know what this is? It’s a snowball just from outside here. So it’s very, very cold out. Very unseasonable.”
However, not everyone was impressed with his demonstration.
“I want to respond to the presentation by one of the Republican senators suggesting that the continued existence of snow disproves climate change,” Whitehouse said.
Whitehouse explained how studies by NASA and other credible organizations have proven that the planet is warming.
Inhofe is the chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee.
