An his point is that climate change or global warming implies that snow cannot occur?  I guess that is it..

Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) used a snowball on the Senate floor Thursday to make his point that global climate change isn't the threat it's cracked up to be.

Inhofe said that despite it being the "warmest year on record," much of the United States is blanketed in snow and freezing temperatures.

"We keep hearing that 2014 has been the warmest year on record. I ask the chair, you know what this is? It’s a snowball, just from outside here. So it’s very, very cold out. Very unseasonal. So Mr. President, catch this," Inhofe said, tossing the snowball over to President Obama.

Inhofe, chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, said on "Fox and Friends Weekend" this morning that since 2002, climate change has gone from the number two issue to number 14, according to polls.

"The president has already spent, in the first five years of his administration, $120 billion, and most of this goes to foreign countries to encourage them to set up a system where their emissions will go down," Inhofe said.

"Right now, we are starving our military ... the problems that we're having all around the world, we can't reach them now because of what's happened to our military," Inhofe said.

"If we just had the money that this president has spent on global warming, we wouldn't be having the serious problems that we're having right now with our military."

Now Democratic gubernatorial candidate Charlie Crist has offered a response. He said, according to SaintPetersBlog: "I'm not a scientist either but I can use my brain and I can talk to one."

On Friday, Crist reportedly attended a 25-minute presentation by Jeff Chanton, a professor at Florida State University who specializes in chemical oceanography and has offered to meet with Scott. Chanton discussed rising sea levels as a consequence of climate change, which scientists say threatens Florida's infrastructure and real estate near the coastline.

Scott's campaign dismissed the move as a publicity stunt, per SaintPetersBlog.

Crist, a former governor of the Florida who wants the job back, is a Republican turned independent turned Democrat. In 2007, he said "global climate change is one of the most important issues we face this century."

In the fight against global warming, Jonathan Cohn sees room for cooperation:

In recent years, the Chinese have imposed fuel mileage and appliance efficiency standards, similar in many respects to those in the U.S. Just this week, officials in Beijing announced that the government would be taking another 5 million aging cars off the nation’s road. China has also set up pilot versions of tradable pollution permits—in other words, “cap-and-trade” schemes—for various industries. Officials say they hope to make these nationwide soon. And one reason the Chinese government was so eager to sign that massive new deal with Russia, allowing the import of natural gas, was because it’s desperate to find alternatives to coal. “For a long time, opponents [of new regulations] said we’ll get hoodwinked, because China won’t do anything,” says David Doniger, director of the Climate and Clean Air Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council. “That’s just not true.”
