    Inhofe arrives in Copenhagen to say US will not pass climate bill -The Green Blog - A Boston Globe blog on living Green in Boston

    Talk about a waste of time and jet fuel... He'd bragged that he was taking a colleague and a "secret" person, but it was just him and an assistant, and attended no meetings.

    COPENHAGEN -- The parade of US politicians to the climate change talks continued this morning when Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma arrived for a two-hour visit to the Danish capital. His message for negotiators was that Congress will never pass a cap-and-trade bill to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and he reiterated his stance that man-made global warming is not occurring.

    Inhofe, who held an impromptu press conference in the Bella Center, said the chances of passage of pending climate and energy legislation were "zero" and would remain so if such a bill was financially harmful to Americans in any way.

    "I figure you are going to hear from the other side," he said, "so I wanted you to hear" this side.

    Inhofe has been one of the most ardent detractors of man-made climate change, and this morning was no exception. He said the recent hacking, and publishing, of e-mails from a prominent climate change research group at East Anglia University in England showed that "the science has been debunked."

    Climate skeptics have seized on the disclosure of the e-mails, which they have branded "climategate," as evidence that the scientists manipulated data to achieve results that showed the world was warming. There is overwhelming evidence that human activity is contributing to the global temperature rise through the release of carbon dioxide from power plants, factories, and cars, but the e-mails have harmed the scientists' credibility.

    US Representative Ed Markey of Massachusetts and other congressmen are expected to also arrive shortly.

    UPDATE: There was misplaced phrase earlier in the blog post and corrected it.

    Anyone who supports climate change theory should have to swim or ride a bike to the conference.
