December 9, 2005 INHOFE STATEMENT ON CLINTON SPEECH IN MONTREAL WASHINGTON, DC – Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Chairman of the Environment & Public Works Committee, issued the following statement today following former President Bill Clinton’s remarks in Montreal regarding climate change: “It is astonishing to me that former President Clinton, the same President Clinton who refused to submit the Kyoto Treaty to the United States Senate for ratification, today attacked President Bush for his approach to climate change,” Inhofe said. “Even more astonishing is that the former President defended the ‘Kyoto approach,’ now recognized by the international community as a failure. Instead of being trapped in the failed Kyoto politics of the past, I continue to support President Bush’s approach of continued scientific research and commitment to developing new technologies.”
