(CNSNews.com) - Sen. James Inhofe (R.-Okla.), ranking member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and the Senate’s leading critic of the climate-change theories being promoted to justify capping U.S. carbon emissions, told CNSNews.com that he once believed in manmade global warming.

CNSNews.com asked Inhofe: “Senator, the view of the liberal establishment is that our planet is warming, that this warming is caused by human activity, primarily the release of greenhouse gasses, and that if we don’t take global governmental action to somehow curtail the release of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere that we are going to face catastrophic consequences for mankind.  What is your view?

Inhofe responded that he initially believed that human activity was causing global warming, but changed his mind after scientists started coming to him to express a different point of view about what the facts said.

Watch a video interview in which Inhofe explains why he changed his mind about global warming and what he thinks is behind the drive for a global climate-change treaty:
