On a recent Meet the Press episode, Jerry Brown, the Governor of California, was asked for his opinion about Ted Cruz’s statements regarding climate change.￼
On a recent episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, Ted Cruz said the following: “I just came back from New Hampshire where there’s snow and ice everywhere. And my view on this is actually simple — debates on this should follow science and should follow data, and many of the alarmists on Global Warming…they got a problem, because the science doesn’t back ’em up.” This statement shows a lack of understanding of the topic. 97% of scientists in this field agree climate change is a real issue.
Governor Brown is concerned that Ted Cruz is running for office with this type of ignorance. He states, “What [Cruz] said is absolutely false. Over ninety percent of the scientists who deal with climate are absolutely convinced that the human activity, the industrial activity — the generation of CO2, methane, oxides and nitrogen, all the rest of those greenhouse gasses, are building up in the atmosphere[…]It’s climate disruption of many different kinds, and that man betokens such a level on ignorance, and a direct falsification of existing scientific data. It’s shocking, I think that man has rendered himself absolutely unfit to be running for office.”
Ted Cruz will be announcing his candidacy for president officially on Monday morning during his speech at Liberty University. Many people find this very disturbing given his ignorance on major issues.
