GOP lawmaker baffles climate scientist by blaming rocks falling in the ocean for rising sea levels

Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) baffled a climate scientist during a congressional hearing on climate change this week by claiming that rocks falling into the ocean are responsible for rising sea levels.

An E&E News report published in Science Mag reveals that Brooks, during a hearing held by the U.S. House of Representatives Science, Space and Technology Committee this week, pressed Woods Hole Research Center President Philip Duffy to consider alternative explanations for sea levels rising that didn’t involve human activity warming the planet.

In particular, Brooks proposed that land erosion — and most specifically, large rocks falling into the ocean — could be the primary culprit for rising sea levels.

“Every time you have that soil or rock or whatever it is that is deposited into the seas, that forces the sea levels to rise, because now you have less space in those oceans, because the bottom is moving up,” he said.


This is a freedumb caucus, teaparty person who is smarter than most freedumb teapartiers. Which means teapartiers are the dumbest people alive. This would be funny were it not for the fact HE is in charge of YOUR environment!


Sometimes when a freedumber talks I look to make real sure it isnt the Onion or something, because when they do talk they say ridiculous and insane nonsense that has to be a comedy routine, but usually it checks out and it is just how their miniature brains operate.

Just when you thought someone couldn't make a dumber statement on climate change they do. Brooks has nothing to personally worry about with rising tides since airheads like him float.

Archimedes was not just the 9.99 special at your local Greek diner, dude.

Water in your bathtub will rise when you climb in, it's just a bathtub.

But when you get in the ocean, bearing in mind the size of the ocean, relative to you ... levels will not noticeably rise. :roll:

You're displacing a volume of water equal to yourself ... but there's a lot of freaking water in the ocean. :roll:

For rocks to make the sea level rise, those would have to be a couple times the size of the asteroid in Armageddon. :roll: :roll:
