$1,531,500 in Dirty Energy Money since 1999

It’s not hard to see why dirty energy companies love Jim Inhofe. He is the Capitol’s top climate change denier. Inhofe is renowned for his vehement attacks on climate science. He famously described climate change as “the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people.” He has described the EPA as “a Gestapo bureaucracy” and was accused of conducting a ‘McCarthyite witch hunt’ after calling for top climate scientists to come under criminal investigation. Unsurprisingly, Inhofe has repeatedly voted against repealing subsidies for Big Oil and he is the sponsor of a bill currently in progress that seeks to prevent the EPA from regulating greenhouse gases.
