WATCH: Louie Gohmert Says Climate Change is a Good Thing Because Warm Weather is Good For Plants

Over the last decade, Republicans have made an art of climate change denial. In fact, when Donald Trump became president, one of his first acts was to pull out of the Paris Climate Accords (and when Joe Biden became president, one of his first moves was to reenter the agreement.)

And while Conservative lawmakers know that they are against climate change, they don’t often have a good explanation why. That was the case with Louie Gohmert on Tuesday. The Texas congressman tried to argue that climate change was a good thing on Tuesday because it helps farmers.

Gohmert said on the House floor:

“I’ve read where experts have said if you’ve got a choice between the temperature getting slightly warmer or slightly colder, you want warmer because if it’s getting slightly colder, that means there’s less time for crops to grow. Slightly warmer, not too much warmer, you got more time for crops to grow. You got more food, and you have fewer people starving.”

Climate change, however, doesn’t just have to do with hot weather. It refers to weather in a number of different extremes, as has become clear with polar vortex’s and constant once-in-a-lifetime storms.
