Senator James Mountain “Jim” Inhofe, the senior United States Senator from Oklahoma–one of Congress’ staunchest deniers of climate change.

    Other official nominees were Sen. Jon Tester (who I recommended for the award a short while ago), whose legislation was instrumental in stripping federal protections from wolves in the Rockies, and Shell Oil, which is dead-set on drilling in the Arctic Ocean, no matter the cost to polar bears, walruses, the climate or our health.

Inhofe and his cronies claim climate change is an elaborate hoax, and stubbornly block meaningful action to combat the crisis.
