Critics mocked Congressman Jamaal Bowman (D-NY) for his comments suggesting that fossil fuels were the cause of extreme weather.

Bowman joined CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer to discuss the imminent debt ceiling deal, and the New York congressman said that his real concern was the fact that the United States was still allowing drilling for fossil fuels. He then attempted to draw a straight line from fossil fuel use to extreme weather events.

“Number one, we need to stop drilling for fossil fuels completely,” Bowman told Blitzer. “But number two, we need an expedited way to get us to clean, renewable energy, or we will continue to have these severe weather events that we have been having for quite some time because of the warming of the planet.”

Governor Brian Kemp (R-GA) pushed back on Bowman’s claim, arguing that the New Yorker’s proposition would bankrupt the American energy sector. “Far left Democrats are doubling down on policies that would destroy the American energy sector and hurt hardworking Americans struggling through 40-year-high inflation,” he tweeted.

Others addressed Bowman’s claims in more mocking tones.

“It’s sort of fun that people have come all the way around on Rain Dances, at least,” Logan Dobson said in response.

“‘We must cripple all domestic energy production so the sun God may bring us good weather!’ The climate cult is completely insane,” added @comfortablysmug.

Radio host Jesse Kelly pointed out the fact that cutting out fossil fuels — especially without the technology and infrastructure already in place to make up the difference in available energy — was a recipe for disaster on a massive scale.

“REMINDER: This is a call for genocide. Start treating these people like the biggest genocidal monsters in human history. Because that’s what they are. Humanity runs on oil and gas. You cannot declare war on oil and gas without war on humanity itself,” he said.
