WATCH: Danny Healy-Rae sticks up for cows and cars in latest climate change rant

From the man that brought you "God above is in charge of the weather."

Danny Healy-Rae, the Independent TD from Kerry was elected to the Dáil for the first time in the last General Election in 2016 and immediately began hitting the headlines.

He is one-half of the Healy-Rae brothers who currently represent their Munster constituency in the Dáil and it's not the first time that he has issued an outrageous statement since getting elected.

Over a year ago, he stated during a Dáil debate on climate change that, "God above is in charge of the weather and we here can’t do anything about it."

Healy-Rae is also notorious for his views on drink-driving previously stating that he'd board a flight if the pilot had drank three glasses of beer and that eating a big meal before driving is as dangerous as drinking before driving.

In recent times, his main topic of discussion has been about drink-driving but Healy-Rae has spoken once again about climate change which he has said before is less believable than Noah's Ark.

Met Éireann's Evelyn Cusack and Healy-Rae were talking about the subject on TV3's The Tonight Show in the wake of storm Ophelia.

Host, Matt Cooper, questioned Healy-Rae about his beliefs that climate change is not real and asked him what he thought about the link between carbon footprint and emissions.

"For many years Matt, we were listening to these scientists and other people saying that global warming was a problem. 

"Then we had a few very cold winters in 2009 and 2010, temperatures went down to 15 and practically 20 below and there has been little talk about global warming since, they are just talking about climate change.

"I say to you Matt, there's many people, scientists out there, that believe that there is no such thing as climate change rather than just the climate patterns have existed going back through the ages where the climate changed.

"[Climate change] wasn't because of combustible engines or it wasn't because of cows.

"I have researched it quite a good bit."
