Sen. James Inhofe

Sen. James Inhofe may be one of several Republican senators who don't believe in global warming, but this Oklahoma politician is particularly vociferous about his beliefs. In February, his family built an igloo near the U.S. Capitol and labeled it "Al Gore's new home."

In a speech to the U.S. Senate in 2003, Inhofe said, “With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people? It sure sounds like it.”
