Senator Jim Inhofe Confident No Climate Change Law This Year- and a GOP Majority in the US Senate After November

Mon, 10 May 2010 5:37:20 CDT

Senator Jim Inhofe Confident No Climate Change Law This Year- and a GOP Majority in the US Senate After November While in our Nation's Capitol, we sat down and talked with the Senior Senator for Oklahoma, Jim Inhofe. We began our conversation talking Climate Change and the prospects of Senators Lieberman and Kerry getting traction with new Climate Change legislation. with concern rising about the oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. (Our picture here is of Senator Inhofe receiving the American Farm Bureau's Golden Plow earlier this year from Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Mike Spradling and AFBF President Bob Stallman.)

Senator Inhofe continues to predict that no climate change legislation with any sort of "cap and trade" plan will pass the Senate here in 2010. He also believes that the Environmental Protection Agency will not have a chance to regulate Greenhouse Gas Emissions, as he believes the premise of their endangerment finding of last year was based on faulty science that has been debunked since that time- and that legal challenges against the finding by the EPA are being filed by many states and numerous groups, including the American Farm Bureau and the National Cattlemen's Beef Association.

Beyond the Climate Change issue, we also talked immigration with Senator Inhofe and he offered his belief that the Republicans will retake the House and he predicted a Republican majority in the Senate as well.

He see the Republicans holding the seats they have that are up for election this fall- and he believes that voters in ten states will switch their Senator from a Democrat to a Republican. The ten states that Inhofe sees a switch the GOP way includes Arkansas, Colorado, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Washington and Wisconsin. He adds that Democratic seats in New York and California are in play as well.
