(CNS News) Pointing approvingly to an op-ed published in the Wall Street Journal by House Science Chairman Lamar Smith (R.-Texas), Senate Environment Chairman Jim Inhofe (R.-Okla.) said on the Senate floor yesterday that global warming alarmists are advancing a new religious sect.

“Global warming alarmism has evolved into a religion where one is either an alarmist or a skeptic,” Inhofe said.

Let the alarmists have their Gore-basms will you have the facts. Read Sen Inhofe’s “The Greatest Hoax: How the Global Warming Conspiracy Threatens Your Future” (Autographed).

“The modern-day religion of climate change has been very artful in establishing and controlling carefully scripted talking points intended to scare the American people under the guise of environmental protectionism,” said Inhofe.
