Inhofe's political career was revived in 1978 when he was elected mayor of Tulsa, a position he held until 1984. In 1986, he made another bid for the First District after Jones retired.

Inhofe is one of the most conservative members of either house of Congress. As a member of the Armed Services Committee, he was among the panelists questioning witnesses about the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse. There he made news by claiming he was "outraged by the outrage" over the revelations of abuse, suggesting that shock at the crimes was more offensive than the crimes themselves.

He is also known for being a particularly zealous supporter of Israel. In March 2002, he made a speech before the US Senate which included the explicit suggestion that the 9/11 attacks were a form of divine retribution against the US for failing to defend Israel. In his words: "One of the reasons I believe the spiritual door was opened for an attack against the United States of America is that the policy of our Government has been to ask the Israelis, and demand it with pressure, not to retaliate in a significant way against the terrorist strikes that have been launched against them."

In 2003, Inhofe called "catastrophic global warming" a "hoax" and that "natural variability, not fossil fuel emissions, is the overwhelming factor influencing climate change; satellite data, confirmed by NOAA balloon measurements, confirms that no meaningful warming has occurred over the last century" and claimed that his conclusion was supported by the "painstaking work of the nation's top climate scientists." [3]. Despite the scientific consensus on climate change, as chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, Inhofe voted on June 22, 2005 to reject an amendment to an energy bill that would have forced reductions in emissions of greenhouse gases and created an emissions trading program, arguing that there was "no convincing scientific evidence" for global warming. [4] "Global warming is still considered to be a theory and has not come close to being sufficently proven," he said.
