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.

The issue came up when a House Natural Resources Committee hearing on Tuesday found no NASA evidence to support it, but a senior Forest Department official said.

Louie Gohmert addressed the question to Jennifer Eberlien, the deputy chief of the National Forest Service as she appeared before the House Natural Resources Committee yesterday.

“follow up with you on that one, Mr Gohmert”Jennifer Eberlien

Jennifer Eberlien, the state’s deputy forest bureau manager said she had to “follow up with you on that one, Mr Gohmert” in the matter.

“I understand from what’s been testified to, the Forest Service and the [Bureau of Land Management], you want very much to work on the issue of climate change,” Gohmert started.

“relatively minor factor in annual seasonal climate variations.”Louie Gohmert

While climate change in Earth impacts are long-term, such as occurring in or breaking out of ice ages, Nasa says it has ‘relatively minor factor in annual seasonal climate variations.’.

During the Natural Resources Subcommittee hearing, Gohmert seemed also to draw a linkage between the Moon and the Earth’s orbit and solar flares with climate change.

The notion that the modification of the Earth’s and Moon’s orbits also makes a large contribution to climate change is false.
