Senator Whitehouse schools Sen. Inhofe on climate change

As Republican Senators continue to cling to the 'script' handed them by their self-obsessed corporate sponsors, Senator Whitehouse makes a valiant attempt to acquaint them with what we are actually doing to our planet.

Please consider some of the lessons our Republican/Libertarian friends should take into consideration when clinking to their faith that global warming is some elaborate hoax ! 

I tip my hat to SkepticalScience, Phil Plait, and ThinkProgress!

Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) throws down an epic schooling of Senator James Inhofe (R-OK) on global warming after Inhofe blocked a resolution from Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) simply acknowledging that global warming exists and poses a threat to the interests of the United States.  Whitehouse makes several points that seem to originate from Skeptical Science, like The Escalator steps.  Well worth taking 7 minutes to watch - hat tip to Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy.
