Marjorie Taylor Greene thinks she knows why there has been catastrophic flooding at Burning Man.

The iconic annual music festival is held in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada and is usually dry and very dusty.

However, the 2023 version has been marred by a humungous storm that has left tens of thousands of revellers stranded.

The water has rendered the only roads in and out of the city useless and people have been urged to conserve their food and water in case the road doesn't dry up soon.

Some festival goers have chanced it with their vehicles or even walked in the mud for miles until they reached a main road.

Republican Congresswoman reckons it's the almighty sending a bit of a message.

She appeared on Alex Jones' InfoWars show, where she couldn't help but bring up the topic.

"I want to talk about Burning Man for a minute," she said. "God has a way of making sure everyone knows who God is.”

But then she went on a bizarre rant about how she thinks everyone at Burning Man will be suddenly convinced that the rain storm is the result of climate change.

“They're locked in," she told Jones.

"They're not allowed to leave and they're basically probably being brainwashed that climate change is the cause of it and it's going to destroy the Earth.”

Yeah, this is definitely going to be the first time people at Burning Man have thought about climate change.

She thinks festival goers are 'probably being brainwashed that climate change is the cause of all of it, is the root of all evil, and is going to destroy the Earth'.

Greene came up with a conspiracy theory that Burners will now spread the word across the United States that climate change should be taken more seriously because they had rain at the festival.

Organizers have encouraged people to stay at the festival site to stay until Tuesday (September 5).

Writing on Facebook, they said: "Wait it out. Watch the Man Burn tonight at 9pm and the Chapel of Babel burn at midnight. Do an extra MOOP sweep (or two) with your campmates.

"Cook that last tasty, communal meal.

"There’s a lot of traffic on Gate Road right now and you might be much happier hanging out in camp with your friends than sitting in a static line of cars for many hours.

"Wake up refreshed on Tuesday and hit the road then."
