He says Rolling Stone should have made him No. 1 in its global warming story.
Wednesday, January 13, 2009
In a cover story on global warming titled “You Idiots!” Rolling Stone named U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe as one of the “planet’s worst enemies.”
The Oklahoma Republican took issue.
“My first response was I should have been No. 1, not No. 7,” said Inhofe, perhaps the most vocal global-warming skeptic in Congress. “I am serious about that. I have spent now literally years on this thing, and it has been a long, involved thing.”

Inhofe is called “God’s Denier” for the way he dismisses concern about rising sea levels.
“I say God is still up there, and we will always have these changes,” he said.
“It is something I have taken eight years of hits for, and then finally we have come from a position of about only 18 percent of the people in America agreeing with my original position 10 years ago to about 75 percent now,” Inhofe said, adding that he now feels redeemed on the issue.
