Rep Gohmert asks: Can climate crisis be fixed by altering moon's orbit?

During a Tuesday hearing of the House Natural Resources Committee, Rep. Louie Gohmert seemed to float a novel idea for solving the climate crisis: changing the orbits of the Earth and moon.

Gohmert, R-Texas, posed that highly speculative theory in the form of a question to Jennifer Eberlien, associate deputy chief of the National Forest System.

Do not alter their orbits! Listen to meeee!

Hilarious that he only complains in his tweets that people think he says BLM referring to Black Lives Matter, not Bureau of Land Management.

He is absolutely clueless that we're laughing about his believing that we can change the orbits of the moon and Earth.

by Anonymousreply 4Last Wednesday at 3:07 PM

He wasn’t suggesting we attempt to change the orbit of the moon or the planet.

He was trying to blame climate change on the slight changes in Earth’s orbit rather than man made reasons.

The article mentions that per NASA, slight wobbles are normal, and Earth’s (and the moon’s) orbit, has never been a perfect circle.

R5, no, in the quote from the article he asks whether the orbit of the moon could be changed.

Okay, I'm kind of dumb but I asked some people recently, "isn't it time for an evil genius to invent a weather machine?" One woman told me that it IS possible to "seed" clouds, I guess that someone figured out how to place rain clouds in certain areas, but there was too much danger of flooding. I have not looked this up. Is this bullshit?

{quote] We know there’s been significant solar flare activities, and so, is there anything that the National Forest Service or BLM can do to change the course of the moon’s orbit or the Earth’s orbit around the sun? Obviously that would have profound effects on our climate.”

You are right R7, I missed that.

He’s crazy to even ask the question.

Idk wtf he's thinking with that, but no one better start fucking around with trying to change whatever happens in space. FFS Leave it alone.

I remember talking to someone that was thinking shooting waste into the sun might be a good idea, if we could get it there in an affordable way -- Hell no. There's reasons why we don't dump garbage into volcanoes (explosions).

Thank goodness we're not that advanced yet with space travel because I have a feeling we would've doomed us all already but screwing around with that environment. We already have quite the collection of garbage circulating the planet from thrusting shit into the atmosphere.

Louie Gohmert was a judge, which means he also went to law school. Granted it was Baylor, but still. Rick Perry also appointed him to the Texas 12th Court of Appeals. Imagine having the misfortune to go in front of this dipshit for some crime you were innocent of (and/or if you are a person of color or LGBTQ).

This is why I don't kneejerk say that just because someone graduated from law school automatically makes them intelligent.

While to most people he seems like a dumbass - and he is - he's trying to normalize ideas that as batshit crazy, Q-Anon loving Trumptard constituents *already believe* - thereby getting them off the hook for doing the hard/painful things to alter/slow climate change (assuming they even believe it exists!), we just need to shoot the moon!

My only hope that in a Barr-less DOJ, they can find all kinds of shit on this guy to put him in the jug for the rest of his pathetic life

Gohmert's behavior during certain committee hearings were disruptive and childish. Remember the annoying pencil tapping? Still, they tolerate him, though some Democrats have expressed disdain about his antics. "Take your meds."

Gohmert's behavior is as bad as that of MTG; perhaps even worse considering his longevity and seniority in Congress.
