Ted Cruz: I don’t believe in climate change because I ‘follow the science’

One-on-one Interview with Ted Cruz     

Ted Cruz:
You mention global warming: I’m a big believer that we should follow the science and follow the evidence. If you look at global warming alarmists; they don’t like to look at the actual facts and the data. The satellite data demonstrate that there has been no significant warming whatsoever for 17 years.

Now that’s a real problem for the global warming alarmists because all of the computer models on which this whole issue was based predicted significant warming and yet the satellite data show it ain’t happening.

Interview interjects a lame question based on the “Precautionary Principle” (addressed here) in short: “Why not do everything we can to reduce our carbon (dioxide) footprint?”

To which Ted replies: I read this morning from a Newsweek article from the 1970s, talking about global cooling, and it said; “The “Science” is clear, it’s overwhelming, we are in a major cooling period and it’s gonna cause enormous problems world-wide and the solution for all the advocates in the 70s for “Global Cooling” was massive government control of the energy sector, of our economy and aspects of our lives.

The data proved to be not backing up that theory so that all the advocates of “global cooling” suddenly shifted to “global warming” and they advocated; “It’s warming” and the solution interestingly enough was the exact same solution: government control of the energy sector and every aspect of our lives.

But then the data don’t back that up so if you notice the term has shifted; and now suddenly it’s “climate change.”

And Climate Change and again the solution is: government control of the energy sector and every aspect of our lives and when some-one keeps proposing the same solution regardless of the problem, you start to think – maybe they just like: government control of the energy sector and every aspect of our lives.

Ted Cruz sums up: I am the child of two mathematicians and scientists. I believe in following evidence and data. On the Global Warming Alarmists: Anyone who actually points the the evidence that disproves their apocalyptical claims – they don’t engage in reasoned debate. What do they do? They scream: You’re a denier! They brand you a heretic.
