    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.”

    As ridiculous as the argument sounds to most people, this plays right into the denialist’s wheelhouse. The “sunspots cause climate change (more precisely, the lack of them)” canard is a favorite of theirs. This argument is “we can’t fix the sun, so why bother with anything else?”

    Of course, the accepted reality among those who are not on the payroll of Big Carbon is that solar activity is NOT a significant factor in the sudden upswing of global temperatures.
