Inhofe: dishonest for Obama to promise CO2 cuts
“Inhofe estimated that at this point carbon-capping legislation may have as few as 28 Senate supporters, while sixty votes are needed in the Senate to end debate on a bill and bring it to a final vote.

“They need 60 votes. They’re not even halfway there. And they know this,” Inhofe said of the Senate advocates of carbon-capping legislation.

In light of this, Inhofe said it is “dishonest” of Obama to go to Copenhagen and tell the world that the U.S. will cap carbon emissions.

“I think it is dishonest for him to go,” Inhofe told “I know that’s a strong word. But if he goes, we have seen what he is going to release there. He’s going to say that the United States of America will commit themselves to reducing our CO2 emissions by 17% by the year 2020. Now, that’s essentially the Markey bill–the Waxman-Markley bill that passed–the same targets. And yet he knows when he says that, that we’re not going to pass it.”” “Inhofe: It’s ‘Dishonest’ for Obama to Attend Global Warming Summit and Say America Will Cap Carbon Emissions
