Oklahoma’s Senator James Inhofe, the leading climate change denier in the Senate, admits that he became skeptical of climate change when he realized it would be damaging to business.

He complained to talk show host Aaron Klein that progressives are using science to enact their “green schemes” agenda.

“They don’t get away with it in the eyes of the American people,” Inhofe said. “I find fewer and fewer members of the United States Senate that are sympathetic to this whole cause.”

If that is indeed the case, U.S. senators would be breaking with the general trend on climate change.

Recent polls have found that Americans increasingly believe that evidence supports global warming caused by human activity, albeit with a sharp partisan divide.
