"This whole global warming myth will be exposed as what it really is—a way of control more than anything else. And that generation will be ticked." - James Lankford, past statement
We need to remove the partisan divide on this issue and treat it as a problem we need to solve together. I have no issue saying that climate change is happening. All the scientific conversation is about the [degree] that people are affecting it and how we solve it. I'm an advocate for clean air and clean water. I have no problem with multiple areas of renewable energy and sustainability. I drink the same water and breathe the same air. For me, it's a matter of identifying the problem and figuring out how to solve it. But we have to have a way to actually identify the problem. That’s the challenge. - James Lankford, 2017, quoted by The Norman TranscriptJim Inhofe is Oklahoma's other Senator. Jim Inhofe was also on the BarackObama.com list of members of Congress who obstruct progress on climate change. He is well-known in Congress when it comes to misrepresentations about climate change. He has said he considers the problem a "hoax".
"I have offered compelling evidence that catastrophic global warming is a hoax. That conclusion is supported by the painstaking work of the nation's top climate scientists." - - Jim Inhofe, 2018
We keep saying the same things. The climate is always changing. We understand that. We actually had a unanimous vote on the floor of the Senate—yeah, climate changes. It has always changed. Historically. Scripturally. It's always changed. We understand that. - Jim Inhofe, 2018
"Mr. Speaker, global temperatures stopped rising 10 years ago. Global temperature changes, when they exist, correlate with Sun output and ocean cycles. During the Medieval Warm Period from 800 to 1300 A.D.—long before cars, power plants, or the Industrial Revolution—temperatures were warmer than today. During the Little Ice Age from 1300 to 1900 A.D., temperatures were cooler. Neither of these periods were caused by any human activity." - Jim Bridenstine
Halting the Keystone XL Pipeline and rejoining the Paris Climate Agreement will not only eliminate American jobs, it will also increase prices for consumers and increase our dependence on foreign oil. This is a bad decision for all American families. - Markwayne Mullin, on Twitter
While investing in clean energy is an important piece of the puzzle, the wind isn’t always blowing and the sun isn’t always shining. We truly need an all-of-the-above energy strategy in order to keep the lights on at a price American families can afford. - Markwayne Mullin
Clean air and clean water is an important issue and it's one that both sides could find common ground on if they wanted to. But unfortunately, the socialist Left has taken over the debate and is more interested in pushing their radical policies on the American people than finding real solutions. Not only are their ideas bad for Americans, they are completely unrealistic. The Green New Deal aims to harvest 100 percent of U.S. electricity from renewable energy sources and make the U.S.'s carbon footprint neutral in the next 10 years. House Democrats have also called for us to reach net zero emissions by 2050. - Markwayne Mullin, House website
As a farmer who has seen the effects of climate change first-hand, I believe we should address global greenhouse gas emissions and support clean American energy. The Paris Agreement is not the way to do that, however. It commits the U.S. to a tremendous financial burden while doing nothing to enforce greenhouse gas reductions by other participants. In fact, despite pledges to the Paris Agreement, emissions from China and India have continued to grow. - Frank Lucas

Droughts and heat waves come and go naturally, but the changing climate has intensified their impacts. We know the climate is changing and that global industrial activity has played a role in this phenomenon. But our communities, like the farmers and ranchers in my district, need to know more about the extent to which a changing climate affects short- and long-term weather patterns. - Frank Lucas, 2019, quoted by InsideClimateNews

I don't think there is any doubt there is climate change — I think the science is pretty clear. We can debate over how to deal with it - Tom Cole, speaking at town hall, according to OUDAILY
Joe Biden's new climate change package is yet another Green New Deal, and Kendra Horn continues her support of this extreme leftist candidate for president. Biden has made it clear that he cares nothing about jobs related to oil and natural gas exploration, a lifeblood for Oklahoma's economy. Oklahomans need a congresswoman who will stand with Oklahoma companies, protect Oklahoma jobs and fight for Oklahoma families. I am that Congresswoman. - Stephanie Bice
