Lunar New Deal: GOP Rep. Gohmert suggests altering moon's orbit to combat climate change

The Texas congressman asked whether there was anything the U.S. Forest Service could do 'to change the course of the moon's orbit or the Earth's orbit around the sun.'

Rep. Gohmert suggested at a Congressional hearing that climate change could be combatted by altering the orbit of the moon, and asked an official from the U.S. Forest Service if there was anything her agency could do to do so.

The Texas congressman asked whether there was anything the U.S. Forest Service could do 'to change the course of the moon's orbit or the Earth's orbit around the sun.'

Gohmert made the comments Tuesday during aHouse Natural Resources Committee hearingon four bills as he was questioning Jennifer Eberlien, an associate deputy chief of the Forest Service."I understand, from what's been testified to the Forest Service and the BLM, you want very much to work on the issue of climate change," Gohmert said, referring to the Bureau of Land Management.

"I was informed by the immediate past director of NASA that they've found that the moon's orbit is changing slightly and so is the Earth's orbit around the sun. We know there's been significant solar flare activity," he said."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."

Eberlien responded, smiling,"I would have to follow up with you on that one, Mr. Gohmert.""If you figure out there's a way in the Forest Service you could make that change, I'd like to know," Gohmert said.Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., offered his own solution to Gohmert on Twitter on Wednesday, suggesting that Marvel Comics' character

Captain Marvelcould handle the job."She can alter planetary orbits with her superpowers. I'm going to work on a bipartisan resolution asking for her help,"Lieu tweeted.As for the"immediate past director of NASA" Gohmert referred to in his remarks, that would probably be Jim Bridenstine, a former member of Congress from Oklahoma who had been a climate change skeptic, who argued years ago that humans aren't responsible for global warming.

"Global temperature changes, when they exist, correlate with sun output and ocean cycles," he said in remarks onthe House floor in 2013.He said that position had evolved by 2017, when then-President Donald Trump nominated him to be NASA's administrator. Bridenstine told

The Washington Postthat after having heard from experts and reading up on the topic,"I came to the conclusion myself that carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas that we've put a lot of it into the atmosphere and therefore we have contributed to the global warming that we've seen."

"And we've done it in really significant ways," he said.Bridenstine could not be reached for comment Wednesday.Gohmert, an outspoken opponent of Democrats' plans to combat climate change, has said he does not believe it is a manmade problem.

"We can't do anything substantive about the climate change right now, when the moon's orbit is apparently changing some, the Earth's orbit is changing some, according to NASA,"he told Fox Business Networklast month.A spokesperson for NASA did not return a call for comment. The agency has long pointed to human-made carbon dioxide emissions as the cause of current global warming.

"Earth's climate has changed throughout history," theagency's website says. Read more: MSNBC »

OMFG OMFG! How can someone have given birth to someone so stupid? moron taking over for trump I hope his state is embarrassed enough to get rid of him. Unfortunately the ones who elected him are just as stupid Now worries Gohmert we'll get The Avengers right on that... This guy just needs to resign, and lay off listening to qanon quacks.. ....

He was having a 'senior moment.' Maybe the Space Force can launch nuclear weapons at the moon to push it back into its proper orbit! How did a man this IGNORANT get elected? Gohmert was just being a typical sarcastic ass by implying there is nothing we can do to impact climate change other than reverse the course of the moon's orbit. The real issue is how WE as mankind can impact climate change via OUR ways to reduce carbon omissions etc

Capital Hill is full of absolute gems 🤢

NASA designs new spacesuits for next lunar mission in 2024The astronauts on the Artemis missions, NASA's next program to send the first woman and the first person of color to the moon, will wear the latest spacesuit, called the exploration extravehicular mobility unit, also known as xEMU. Gorgeous! Love it! Why isn’t it pink

Finally, a use for the Space Force and Space Lasers. He was trolling a climate change acolyte who should be concentrating on more important things consistent with the actual charter of the US Forest Service, u dummies Louie's IQ Is The Same As Daffy Ducks! Better call the space force. He's certainly thinking outside the box, if 'thinking' is the right word.

Welcome to Texass! Goober the moron! Yet again! An elected representative! NoT a drunk spewing conspiracy 💩 Global or flat earth? Seems to matter.

Biden ends GOP infrastructure talks, starts new negotiationsWASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden ended talks with a group of Republican senators on a big infrastructure package on Tuesday and started reaching out to senators from both parties in a new effort toward bipartisan compromise, setting a summer deadline for Congress to pass his top legislative priority. Dear Joe Biden and the Dems, There IS no 'bipartisan'. There will never be any 'bipartisan'. You have the power for once. Use it or lose it. Good ! Republicans wouldn’t have voted for it even with their changes! RepublicansSuck POTUS Translation, POTUS caves and McConnell laughs. Do what you were elected to do. Save the American people and build back better.

🤦‍♂️ How the hell did this guy get elected? Either lots of people don't actually read articles or wouldn't know sarcasm if it slapped them in the face, and the news agencies know this too JFC - our country is being held hostage by these idiots Not The Onion. OMG. Be easier than injecting it with bleach. This idiot probably saw the movie the 'Wandering Earth' on Netflix and said hey if China can do it why can't we.

Seriously, this man has a mental health disorder and needs help. He’s suffering. Stupid people voting stupid people into office. You can’t make this shit up! Unfknbelievable. Leave it to the GOP to suggest some ludicrous idea. The moon isn’t the problem people are.

Biden seeks new coalition for infrastructure bill as talks with key GOP senators fall apartInfrastructure talks between the White House and Republican senators have stalled, so President Joe Biden is looking for a different path to bipartisanship. Why they make it look like he taking a piss IMPEACH Sen_JoeManchin NOW! Clearly he's an impediment to moving U.S. forward & HE DOESN'T representing Democrats. Sen_JoeManchin should be FORCED TO RESIGN! chuck_shumer & DEMS. MUST FIND Sen_JoeManchin INCAPABLE OF EFFECTIVE DEMOCRATIC REPRESENTATION & POLICY! Womp womp. Yet another failure of creepy Joe

Huh Gohmert should be a new word for 'moron.' As in, 'Look at all these gohmerts on Twitter trying to pretend this didn't really happen.' replouiegohmert watched too much Space 1999 as a kid. Are the guys from truTVjokers giving him this direction? It would be even better if Texas combatted stupidity by altering their Rep for someone intelligent replouiegohmert Science facts SundayMorning

FFS Luny new deal 🌜👨‍🚀👽🚀 Icane in the the membrain insane got no brain Reminds me of Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Georgia), who was actually worried Guam would tip over with too many troops. We elect some real winners to CONgress. The lunacy. Pun absolutely intended

Jack Ciattarelli wins GOP primary for New Jersey governor, CNN projectsJack Ciattarelli will win the Republican nomination for New Jersey governor, CNN projected Tuesday, setting him up to take on Gov. Phil Murphy in the fall. Barf Jersey is disgusting Good -s’ more old white guys duking it out

Retire him Lololololol Omg Lolololol We pay for this idiot? And I thought I could ramble on..... I bet Gohmert children and grand children are saying after hearing this theory, 'I wish we were never born' Dumber than a bag of hammers Say WHAT? Is he a real GOP representative? Seriously Are these people fucking real or just plain Twilight Zoned? 🤪🤪😵‍💫😵‍💫🤡

The GOP is a hack job turned on itself 🤣 How do we as a Nation get such brilliant people like him in office

replouiegohmert sigh. What this MF smoking?!? POP QUIZ! This makes Rep. Gohmert feel: a) Embarrassed b) Proud that his stupidity has triggered the libs Do NOT read this if you're drinking something you don't want to spurt out your nose!! Just as crazy as green new deal White male privilege in action. Pathetic.

Don't know how you were able to write this without laughing your head off. Guess Gohmert didn't take ANY basic physics classes. Idiot 🤣🤣🤣🤣 😂😂😂😂

Ford to offer new Maverick compact pickup standard as hybridFord Motor Co (F.N) said on Tuesday its new Maverick compact pickup truck will have a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain as standard equipment, a technology choice aimed at keeping the vehicle's starting price below $20,000.

Davidlaz His other idea was, since the earth is flat maybe we can just flip it over. I don’t get how these ppl think the way they do. Guess they’ve listened to Trump’s talk so long it’s rubbed off on them. Inject yourself with disinfectant. Shove UV rays up your butt. As dumb as they come. Hope someone keeping track of all the waay out there things they’ve said.

That should send any sane person into orbit! Lol, this reminds me of Victor from Despicable Me; wanting the shrink ray device to steal the moon. 🥴 HeidiNBC But as long as he thinks the election was stolen and 1/6 was a normal day in Congress, he's just right for Texas. HeidiNBC jodotcom I guess this is how a GOP congressman from TX thinks of climate change. Hey maybe Gomert want to lead an expedition. Could include Gaetz

HeidiNBC Gohmert was simply launching a diversion with this idiotic question. If not, he has some serious issues that need professional attention. MSNBC Not from TheOnion ?

Yeah, nothing could possibly go wrong trying CHANGE THE ORBIT of the moon in lieu of actually putting any effort into stopping and reversing all of humanity's environmental damage. Gohmert's plan, in action: Just change the gravitational constant of the universe! Man, is he stupid!! Wowie Bowie!!! He was being sarcastic right? I mean..can an elected official be THAT stupid? I understand the people who elect them are beyond idiotic…but…really?

I'm speechless... Oh great! First we block the sun & then change the orbit of the moon. What could possibly go wrong? Maybe if we could get the Earth Axis to rotate the opposite way, the Dinosaurs will return. Altering the orbit of the Moon, are you kidding. It seems that not everyone recognizes sarcasm.

MSNBC If the president is telling our troops that the greatest threat to them and the USA is 'climate change' then why are we invading India, China, North Korea, Saudi Arabia, and several countries Africa and then have them to cause to have a less carbon foot print. Time is against us What shit is this guy on? This has to be a black eye for Texas! Science is not that hard!

This is the brain child of Texas. Who is shocked? Wanna drop a nuke on hurricanes too? On one hand you can’t blame him for trying; but on the other hand you can totally blame him for trying. SNL skits are writing themselves now.... MSNBC He thinks he’s funny, but he’s just a run-of-the-mill horse’s behind.

MSNBC jfc, put him in a quiet place with a blanket Having just labeled Ron DeSantis a moron, I am at a loss for words when faced with Gohmert. He sets a new standard. That is the sort of stupidity to be expected from GrifterDon! MSNBC Trump republican of course. Injecting disinfectant history from their leader

it's just a shame that stupidity doesn't hurt

Balancing the Moon on top of the North Pole would supply the planet with cheese for the next 10,000 years. NBC news latest to admit they’re complete idiots being trolled by this. So funny. Wow Gohmert Pyle even Andy would lol at this statement This man should give some serious thought to retirement. Maybe even a little psychiatric counselling.

Put this crazy bastard on the moon, that should alter the Universe! This is in par with fighting Covid19 with a dose of Clorox and shining a light in your innards. EazyNorthWest lol the hell buddy thinkin This is the same Texas genius that said he got COVID from his mask. Again is it me or are all the republican men low O2 to their brains...

Fauci altering viruses, Gates wants to block the sun, Musk strives to create a symbiosis between humans and digital, now this dude wants to alter the moon. Climate Change objectives are not consistent with the natural physical laws of life/nature — goes totally against it. Nuke the moon! This is so funny. He’s outright making fun of media, politicians and bureaucrats and they’re too stupid to know it. What a show!

Meth is a terrible thing. Ha. C’mon. Nobody is that dumb. Hello? lunarlunacy Texas A M and Baylor are so proud of this alumnus Maybe they should try raking the leaves first 🤡

if she didn't say inject chlorine bleach into your eyeballs and we'll see, what are we even doing anymore Dumb as a bag of rocks. He didn’t say that, did he? If he did, he must resign now because he’s insane. What the heck he’s doing in the Congress? Why are we paying stupid ppl to represent us? Oh yeah, climate change could be combatted by using “Trial By Combat,” Nuclear!😆

This guy probably believes The Avengers are real. He’s probably got DC and Marvel on speed dial 🤣🤣🤣 So we know that gomer is crazy, do we have to go further to prove it. You gotta love the mind of a republican,LOL Remember when the left laughed at Hank for suggesting that GUAM could tip over? Me neither.

Could just move away from oil idk.

How is this man a sitting member of Congress? How do fellow colleagues even communicate with him? Did he inject bleach? The forest service says they cannot plant any trees on the moon because there isn't any air up there. Maybe you should contact the NOAA, since they have atmosphere in their name. ^_^ Yes there is something we can do. Please put replouiegohmert on the next Space X test rocket

Alter The Moon's Orbit 👇 Assault Weapons= Swiss Army Knife 👇 Drink Disinfectant 👇 Strong Light In The Body 👇 Rake The Forrest ..... Cult45 I see a pattern lol. Don't know if his trolling more funny or that MSNBC is pretending he's not. How can so many STUPID people be elected to Congress? Easy fix. Send Gohmert to the moon. He should even invite some of his tumplican friends to go with him.
