Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Inhofe spoke out against children being taught to believe in climate change.

"Our kids are being brainwashed," Inhofe said during an interview reported by Right Wing Watch

As chairman of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee, the senator has been outspoken in his denial of the threat of climate change. He said he became aware that children were being "brainwashed" when his granddaughter asked him about climate change.

"My own granddaughter came home one day and said, 'Popi, why is it you don't understand global warming?'" he said. "The stuff they teach our kids nowadays, they are brainwashed – you have to un-brainwash them when they get out."

Inhofe made a show of his climate change skepticism last year, when he brought a snowball to the Senate floor to dispute the claim that it was the warmest year on record. 

During the interview, Inhofe also discussed the need for Republicans to unite behind Donald Trump, or "it's kind of game over for Republican democracy."

He explained to the Oklahoma delegation at the Republican National Convention that the world is in serious danger, according to NewsOK.

"I remember World War II. I can say we're in greater danger than at any time in history," Inhofe said.
