Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor on Thursday afternoon, armed with a special prop: A snowball, to demonstrate the lawmaker’s longtime insistence that climate change is a hoax.

“In case we have forgotten, because we keep hearing that 2014 has been the warmest year on record, I ask the Chair: You know what this is?” Inhofe asked rhetorically. “It’s a snowball, that’s just from outside here. So it’s very, very cold out — very unseasonal. So Mister [Senate] President, catch this.”

The next question, of course, is just how “unseasonal” a snowball would really be — in February.

And just a reminder: After the big Republican wins of 2014, Inhofe is now the Chair of the Senate Environment Committee.
