    James Inhofe Says the Bible Refutes Climate Change | rightwingwatch.org

    Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) appeared on Voice of Christian Youth America’s radio program Crosstalk with Vic Eliason yesterday to promote his new book The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future, where he repeated his frequent claim that human influenced climate change is impossible because “God’s still up there.” Inhofe cited Genesis 8:22 to claim that it is “outrageous” and arrogant for people to believe human beings are “able to change what He is doing in the climate.”

    Eliason: Senator, we’re going to talk about your book for a minute, you state in your book which by the way is called The Greatest Hoax, you state in your book that one of your favorite Bible verses, Genesis 8:22, ‘while the earth remaineth seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease,’ what is the significance of these verses to this issue?

    Inhofe: Well actually the Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that ‘as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night,’ my point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.

    Inhofe also says that Richard Cizik, the former Vice President of the National Association of Evangelicals, was bought off by environmentalists and “has been exposed since then to be the liberal that he is”…because apparently liberals can’t be Christians?

    He went on to cite Romans 1:25 to criticize people, particularly evangelicals like Cizik, who believe in climate change. Inhofe said that just as Scripture forecasted, people have now “worship the creation” when they support environmental protection, which seems to assume that humans won’t be negatively impacted by climate change.

    Caller: Senator, do you quote any Scripture in your book?

    Inhofe: Yeah, as a matter of fact I do. My favorite is Genesis 8:22 which is ‘as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night,’ you know, God’s still up there. There’s another piece of Scripture I’ll mention which I should’ve mentioned, no one seems to remember this, the smartest thing the activists did in trying to put their program through is try to get the evangelicals on their side, so they hired a guy named Cizik, and he had his picture in front of Vanity magazine dressed like Jesus walking on water. He has been exposed since then to be the liberal that he is. I would say that the other Scripture that I use quite frequently on this subject is Romans 1:25, ‘They give up the truth about God for a lie and they worship God’s creation instead of God, who will be praised forever.’ In other words, they are trying to say we should worship the creation. We were reminded back in Romans that this was going to happen and sure enough it’s happening.

    God is responsible for the physics of the solar system and the earth?

    Only if you believe he designed and created it all.
    Even then it is just your belief, which is not proven fact.

    And there are those who follow a religion who also want the best for America. This country does not belong solely to either side. Get over it.

    I agree.

    Thats why this was created, because this guy can't keep his religion out of politics.



    You can have your religion, but don't bring it into politics.
    This country was founded for freedom of expression/relgious freedom.
    So to have someone making political decisions influenced by religion will have rights taken away from the majority and go against what this country was founded for.

    So I take it YOU believe that
    1) IN spite of NOT accounting for 12.5% of the Earth's land mass over the last 50 years of temperature taking that the world is growing warmer?
    You do know that all the temperature recordings over the last 50 years had ONLY 4 reading
    stations for 12.5% of the earth's land mass?

    2) AND I bet you FEEL that when you heard 385 billion tons of glaciers melted each year (which by the way IS OFF BY 90%!!!) you said yup.. all that water is as Gore said will make the oceans rise!
    You do know that with 343 QUINTILLION gallons of water in all the oceans adding 385 billion tons of melted ice is equal to adding A 24 oz cup of water into a 648,000 gallon swimming POOL?

    So pardon ME if I'm a little skeptical about "global warming" and given the fact Greenland once was green??? AND more recently the fact that we are entering a mini-ice age???

    But of course YOU are a GAIA believer that taking the scientist AlGORE's FACTUAL statement that
    but two kilometers or so down in most places there are these incredibly hot rocks, 'cause the interior of the earth is extremely hot, several million degrees, and the crust of the earth is hot ...
