My First Run-in with Inhofe Staff
After I came in on the last bit of a meeting SustainUS members were having with a group of Senate staff I sat down with Andrew Wheeler, Senior Senate Environment and Public Works staff for Senator Inhofe.
We talked a little OU basketball, I was cordial, I said that while we disagree completely on climate policy Senator Inhofe has an incredible opportunity to develop the renewable energy tax incentives that will ensure the future of a clean energy economy.
The response was that Sen. Inhofe wants all options on the table, including coal and nuclear. Not surprisingly.
Then we talked about baby sea turtles...
