Inhofe at CFACT press conference: Why isn’t Obama in Rio?

Today marked the opening day of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, and in a press release and video, Senator James Inhofe (R., Okla.) blasted the conference’s “radical global-warming agenda,” as well as President Obama’s political maneuvering around the topic.

“The bottom line is simple: President Obama is running for reelection and is too busy trying to tell American voters that he is the new fossil-fuels President and that he actually supports the development of oil, gas, and coal,” Inhofe said in the video. “I don’t think that message would sell too well with his friends in the U.N. But just wait until after the election — God forbid if he wins — then, as he has promised, he can get back to making his far-left global-warming agenda a top priority.”

Inhofe’s remarks are set to air in front of an event hosted by the Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow, who are following the U.N. Conference to, in their words, “expose these dreadful, potentially devastating policy proposals — and inject some much-needed common sense” into the deliberations. (Planet Gore will have more CFACT reports from Rio throughout the week.)

In his remarks, Inhofe notes that the very existence of the eco-conference has been buried in Washington: “As you know, I had considered making the trip myself but realized that no one in Washington even knows the conference is taking place! President Obama is avoiding it like the plague, and his allies in Congress haven’t made a single speech on the conference. . . . It appears that even the liberal establishment in Washington wishes this whole U.N. Conference would go away. We have come a long way in 20 years.”
