Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-OK) donned some long johns on Monday to battle the “polar vortex” and use this week’s cold weather as evidence that the U.S. does not need to address global warming.

“There’s a concerted effort of people to believe that global warming is taking place, that we’re all going to die and all of that,” he said on the Senate floor. “At the same time, the evidence out there is just– it’s almost laughable.”

Inhofe prepared for the unusually cold weather by wearing long johns under his suit on Monday, showing them off to Now This News.

On the Senate floor Inhofe noted multiple instances during which global warming rallies or speeches took place during during snow storms or exceptionally cold weather. Inhofe then used the “blast of arctic air” that hit a large portion of the U.S. Monday to support his climate change skepticism.
