Inhofe Responds to Obama Speech in Copenhagen


Listen to Inhofe Respond to Obama UN Global Warming Speech on Bill Bennett Radio



WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today commented on President Obama’s remarks before the United Nations Climate Conference in Copenhagen, Denmark.


“President Obama’s pledge today to cut US emissions “in the range of” 17 percent by 2020 stands in the face of significant bipartisan opposition in the Senate,”  Senator Inhofe said.   “With unemployment at 10 percent, President Obama should be focused on helping people get back to work.  Instead, he’s promised to send hard-earned taxpayer dollars overseas, possibly to countries such as China and India, so they can deal with climate change.  That’s not going to create jobs here at home.”
