Sen. Inhofe throws snowball on U.S. Senate floor

U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Tulsa, who often points to cold weather to refute global warming, brought a snowball (real Washington DC snow!) to the floor of the U.S. Senate on Thursday afternoon and tossed it before delivering remarks about how President Barack Obama and environmentalists keep talking about global warming but it keeps getting cold.

Here’s a C-SPAN vine of the soft toss.

Then there is this Washington Post blog item about a study saying cold air is at a record low in our hemisphere.

Author of the study and Inhofe should have a snowball fight to settle the whole thing once and for all.
