Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) thanked a green group on Friday for recognizing his skepticism of climate science with an award that is meant to be disparaging.
The Center for Biological Diversity bestowed Inhofe with its “Rubber Dodo Award,” which it doles out annually to people the group says have done the most to drive endangered species extinct. It has previously been given to The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, former BP chief Tony Hayward and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R).
Inhofe, who has made curbing environmental rules one of his top legislative goals, said he’s honored to be the latest recipient.
