Ted Cruz denies that global warming is even happening.
Appearing on “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” Cruz had this to say:
Many of the alarmists on global warming, they’ve got a problem because the science doesn’t back them up. In particular, satellite data demonstrate for the last 17 years, there’s been zero warming.”
— Ted Cruz on Tuesday, March 17th, 2015 in an interview on “Late Night with Seth Meyers”
Cruz was criticized by California governor Jerry Brown for denying scientific reality. On Sunday Cruz said that “global warming alarmists” like Brown “ridicule and insult anyone who actually looks at the real data.”
Let’s look at the real data.
