(Comedy Central) Jon Stewart blasts GOP senator for saying that snowballs disprove global warming
"Unless he's personally witnessing something, it just can't be real"

Last night Jon Stewart slammed Senator James Inhofe over a snowball stunt he pulled on the Senate floor last week. Inhofe, who is
Chairman of the Senate's Environment and Public Works committee, brought a snowball onto the Senate floor to make the case that climate change is not real.
"In case we have forgotten," the Senator stated, "because we keep hearing that 2014 has been the warmest year on record -- I ask the chair, you know what this is? It’s a snowball. And that’s just from outside here. So it’s very, very cold out."
Stewart was of course baffled by this stunt -- and the climate change denialism that it stems from. "Unless he's personally witnessing something, it just can't be real," the comedian exclaimed. Watch the clip below:
