Inhofe Blasts Environmental Left Over Climate Change Report

Climate change is occurring because of the burning of fossil fuels. It’s the latest conclusion of the International Panel on Climate Change and Oklahoma U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe, author of a book claiming climate change is a hoax, disagrees with the assessment.

“The idea that our advanced industrialized economy would ever have zero carbon emissions is beyond extreme and further proof that the IPCC is nothing more than a front for the environmental left,” said Senator Inhofe in a statement from his Washington, D.C. offices.

The report was pointed.

“Continued emission of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and long-lasting changes in all components of the climate system, increasing the likelihood of severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts for people and ecosystems.”

Stark as the claim may be, Senator Inhofe was not shocked.

“It comes as no surprise that the IPCC is again advocating for the implementation of extreme climate change regulations that will cripple the global economy and send energy prices skyrocketing,” said Inhofe.

He points to an energy renaissance in the United States that has the potential to bring about American energy independence and strengthen the country’s national security and energy eliability for generations into the future.

“At a time of economic instability and increased threats to American interests, the IPCC’s report is little more than high hopes from the environmental left,” concluded the Senator.

The IPCC’s report, as Inhofe noted, isn’t really surprising since the first conclusion of scientists who gathered in 1997 in Kyoto, Japan and came up with the Kyoto Protocol. It was a pledge from each country to reduce emissions by a certain percentage by 2020. However, China wasn’t bound by it.

Some observers believe the out-dated Kyoto Protocol will be replaced when a new conference is held in Paris in December, 2015. And for now, the plan calls for a “Green Climate Fund” in which developed nations like the U.S. would pledge money toward the developing nations to help them move closer to green energy.
