Inhofe On Obama’s Climate Agenda: It’s About Fixing The ‘Embarrassment Of Copenhagen’


President Barack Obama’s global warming agenda isn’t about the environment, according to Sen. Jim Inhofe , it’s about saving face from the “embarrassment” the president suffered when trying to get countries to sign a climate treaty in 2009.

“The president’s so-called ‘Climate Action Plan’ has never been about saving the environment or the world from impending global warming doom,” the Oklahoma Republican said in a Wednesday hearing on a potential United Nations climate treaty. “It is about making up for the embarrassment of Copenhagen and solidifying his environmental legacy.”

Obama and other world leaders will meet in Paris later this month to kick off U.N. climate talks. Delegates are expected to come up with an agreement for countries to cut carbon dioxide emissions in the coming decades.
