Inhofe Bill to Repeal Damaging Energy Provision

April 8, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.), Ranking Member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and a senior member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, yesterday introduced legislation repealing section 526 of the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) signed into law in December 2007. Section 526 prohibits federal agencies from contracting for nonconventional, or alternative, fuels that emit higher levels of greenhouse gas emissions than “conventional petroleum sources”:

I worked to include language in the Energy Policy Act of 2005 recognizing that unconventional fuels such as oil shale and tar sands developed in the U.S. and Canada are strategically important and necessary to develop to reduce the growing dependence of the U.S. on foreign oil imports. Section 526 of the 2007 energy bill, however, prohibits federal agencies from contracting for such fuels.

This misguided provision was surreptitiously inserted into the 2007 energy bill shortly before final passage. Despite the potential enormity of the provision’s consequences, no public hearings, discourse, or examination occurred before its inclusion. The scope of fuels that could be prohibited is left wide-open to interpretation, including fuels such as Canadian oil sands, E85 ethanol, and coal- and natural gas-to-liquids fuel, which has powered B-52H bomber aircraft at Tinker Air Force Base.

I’m particularly concerned that section 526 could limit the diversity and supply of fuel for our nation’s Air Force and other military branches. Our military could be forced to obtain a greater percentage of petroleum from unstable regions of the world, endangering our ability to quickly and economically obtain much-needed fuel to conduct operations vital to the defense of our nation.

The effects of this legislation could increase fuel prices for our military, thus reducing our ability to maintain, reset and modernize our forces. At a time when our troops are involved in two large-scale foreign conflicts, our military must have the flexibility to secure and develop alternative sources of fuel.

Sen. Inhofe: Look Closer at Global Warming "Solutions"

December 4, 2007

By Sen. James Inhofe


Special to Roll Call

Just in time for the United Nations Climate Change Conference, the chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee has scheduled a business meeting to consider legislation that seeks to impose mandatory global warming “solutions” on the American people. The global warming cap-and-trade bill (S. 2191) introduced by Sens. Joe Lieberman (ID-Conn.) and John Warner (R-Va.) seeks to regulate carbon dioxide by creating a whole new federal bureaucracy. In moving the bill out of committee, supporters of the bill are anxious for a symbolic “victory” just in time for their U.N. trip to Bali.

There is a better way for Congress to legislate. The American people deserve an open and honest debate on the merits of any proposed climate change legislation, especially considering that mandatory carbon cap-and-trade legislation will impose the largest tax increase ever in the U.S. without any measurable climate benefits. Consideration of the Lieberman-Warner bill, The Wall Street Journal reported in a Nov. 5 article, comes at a time when a “winter-heating crisis looms.”

The consequences of higher fuel bills for poor Americans can be devastating. High energy bills were cited as one of the two main reasons for homelessness, according to a 2006 survey of Colorado homeless families with children. Because of the significant economic harm imposed on our country by this bill, I joined Sens. George Voinovich (R-Ohio) and John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) in requesting a full economic analysis by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Energy Information Administration before we proceed to a vote. Not knowing the extent of the economic damage resulting from this bill before we vote would be irresponsible. Read more…

Senator Inhofe Makes Dirty Dozen List

October 10, 2007


The League of Conservation has named Senator Inhofe one of the “Dirty Dozen” for his opposition to Global Warming. Senator Inhofe calls Global Warming for what it is, a hoax and a money making scheme.

“When you’re on the Dirty Dozen, that means you’re out of step with voters,” said Tony Massaro, senior vice president with the league. “(Inhofe) is one of the leading global warming deniers still left on planet earth, and there aren’t many of them.”

I would like to let Senator Inhofe know that there are some Oklahomans and some Americans that don’t believe the hype as it relates to Global Warming.

Global Warming Hypocrisy

September 10, 2007


Thank God for a man with courage! Senator Inhofe speaking before the Tulsa Press Club while a “Polar bear” raises its hand to whine about Global Warming. What is so ironic, Liberals talk about saving the polar bears but thought that Knut should have died. This further proves Michael Savage’s point that Liberalism is a mental disorder that is almost non-curable.
