Senator Inhofe.

Former U.S. Senator James Inhofe, one of the most vocal deniers of climate change who headed the Environment and Public Works Committee, suffered from a stroke and has died, Business Insider reports.

Known for tossing a snowball on the Senate floor in 2015 to deny global warming, Inhofe vocally questioned climate change science, calling it "a hoax."
