As the senior member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, Oklahoma’s beloved U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe has already become the stuff of both satire and draining sadness by simply existing.

Though the fact that a climate change denier is on the Senate committee is ironic in itself, Inhofe wasted no time making his service more so by calling the recent U.S.-China climate deal a “non-binding charade.”
