Republican Sen. Jim Inhofe said Monday that the administration's refusal to testify before his committee on President Obama's climate change agenda is unprecedented and a sign that the president's policy push will fail.

Inhofe made the comments in a pre-recorded address to a meeting of climate change skeptics being held in Paris alongside the United Nations climate change conference. The U.N. conference is scheduled to reach an agreement among nearly 200 countries on global reductions in greenhouse gas emissions by Friday.
