You find the strangest things sometimes.
This time an article at Think Progress. Please take the time to read the snips below – cause it is ridiculously absurd at the same time that it is so very sad for all bright, above-average Americans.

Senator James Inhofe (R-OK), the lead Republican on the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, held a climate-denial press conference at the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change on Thursday. Accompanying Inhofe were two rather questionable characters: an activist who believes the UN is starting the apocalypse and a British Lord who was banned from all UN climate conferences for impersonating the representative from Myanmar.
Inhofe’s first guest, Cathie Adams, is the President of the Texas Eagle Forum and former Texas GOP chair. She must have felt quite uncomfortable speaking at a United Nations function, as she has maintained for over a decade that the UN was the anti-Christ’s vehicle for stealthily taking over the world. From a 1999 newsletter:
Inhofe’s other guest, Lord Christopher Monckton, has a storied history of making things up, especially with respect to climate science. … got him ejected from the nation of Qatar and banned from every future UN climate summit.
One might think this clown show would embarrass the Senator, but his record suggests otherwise:

Well – when you think about that last sentence – it should give you a pretty good idea about what YOUR ALEC legislator is learning at ALEC meetings. The climate education at ALEC meetings is a climate denial clown show.
Where do you think Inhofe learned and developed all his climate denial wisdom and repertoire - probably at ALEC meetings.
Inhofe – ALEC Alumni
And currently an advisor to the Natural Resources Task Force which is a subcommittee of the ALEC Energy, Environment and Agriculture Task Force
And the other guest:
Inhofe’s other guest, Lord Christopher Monckton, has a storied history of making things up, especially with respect to climate science
a British Lord who was banned from all UN climate conferences for impersonating the representative from Myanmar.
Well – he has a history of SPEAKING at ALEC meetings.
Inside ALEC | Sept./Oct. 2009
The inauguration of ALEC’s International Relations Task Force (IRTF) took place on July 17, at ALEC’s 36th Annual Meeting, held in Atlanta, Georgia. Speakers included the United Kingdom’s Lord Christopher Monckton, Third Viscount Monckton of Brenchley and Daniel Hannan, Member of European Parliament (MEP). Additionally, those in attendance were introduced to the IRTF public and private sector co-chairs, Sen. William Hewes, III (MS) and David Powers of Reynolds American, Inc.
My closing questions are
Were Inhofe and Adams REPRESENTING the USA in some format?
Isn’t there a way that we can stop these right-wing extremists from presenting in public and making a fool of the USA around the world?
Are you OKAY – with your ALEC legislators being indoctrinated with the right-wing extremist climate denial agenda of the American Legislative Exchange Council?
Are you – really?
Think about it – cause your life and the lives of your children and grandchildren, could depend on it – literally.
