Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) blocked a Senate resolution that would have simply stated that climate change is real, citing various reasons and conspiracies. Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) provided a thorough debunking.
Senator Whitehouse: "It’s one thing to be against science; it’s another to be the party against measurement. So the polluters and front groups don’t talk much about the oceans. But that doesn't change the fact. This is real. And it is past denying."
