Eliason: Senator, we’re going to talk about your book for a minute, you state in your book which by the way is called The Greatest Hoax, you state in your book that one of your favorite Bible verses, Genesis 8:22, ‘while the earth remaineth seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease,’ what is the significance of these verses to this issue?
Inhofe: Well actually the Genesis 8:22 that I use in there is that ‘as long as the earth remains there will be seed time and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, day and night,’ my point is, God’s still up there. The arrogance of people to think that we, human beings, would be able to change what He is doing in the climate is to me outrageous.
Ever wonder why white males in upper western United States like to hunt wolves? Wonder no more, hunters have made a movie, “Crying Wolf,” which lists all the justifications for wolf hunting. Your argument is invalid.
Among their reasons:
The nation was founded on Judeo-Christian values, and the bible explicitly states that man has dominion and stewardship over all animals
God gave them property, and they should be free to protect their property from government intrusion
Liberal, left-wing, extreme environmentalists are trying to take away their land and way of life
Wolves kill other animals, such as elk and deer. To prevent this, they should be able to hunt the wolves to keep the balance.
The wolf has never been biologically endangered, therefore they can hunt it
Hunters are environmentalists, and know more about nature than scientists, academics, liberals, math, data, the government, etc etc
Conspiracy: The wolf is a tool used by liberal left extreme environmentalists to stop ranchers from grazing cattle for free on public lands
