Republican Louie Gohmert of Texas put forward a rationale on climate change at a House subcommittee hearing Tuesday that seemed like drawing bewilderment and derision on Twitter from one administration official.

Facts first: there is little point in Gohmert’s remark.

Gohmert’s office did not respond to CNN’s request for clarifications on his comments, which generated considerable mockery on Twitter.

As NASA notes in an article about Earth’s orbital cycles, though,”cannot account for the current period of rapid warming.”

In an article authored by NASA, the agency, with references to the United Nations “Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, notes that” the scientific consensus is that long-term and short-term variations in solar activity play a very little role in the Earth’s climate.”

All it claimed was NASA debunked by Gohmert.

This paper also notes that the warming created by man-made greenhouse gases is “50 times greater than the slight extra warming coming from the Sun itself over that same time interval.”
