The Left has their panties in a huge wad over Ted Cruz. He’s actually willing to discuss whether “climate change” is a problem that we need to shut down the US economy to address. Unlike Democrats like Jerry Brown, Cruz is of the opinion that “climate change” is “weather.”
Cruz cited satellite data that shows no warming for the past 17 years as proof that “climate change” is neither man-made nor real. How desperate is the Left to ignore the facts?
But Cruz’s reasoning has been debunked by Politifact, which has shown that scientists have ample evidence to believe that the climate will continue to warm.
“What he said is absolutely false,” Brown said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He added that over 90 percent of scientists who study the climate agree that climate change is caused by human activity.
“Cruz’s reasoning has been debunked by Politifact.” Hey guys that website is a far left tool that makes weak attempts at justifying far left political opinion.
As far as the “over 90 percent of scientists” drivel, that’s not just been debunked, it’s been shown to be a flat out lie.
Since 1998, more than 31,000 American scientists from diverse climate-related disciplines, including more than 9,000 with Ph.D.s, have signed a public petition announcing their belief that “…there is no convincing scientific evidence that human release of carbon dioxide, methane, or other greenhouse gases is causing or will, in the foreseeable future, cause catastrophic heating of the Earth’s atmosphere and disruption of the Earth’s climate.” Included are atmospheric physicists, botanists, geologists, oceanographers, and meteorologists.
So where did that famous “consensus” claim that “98% of all scientists believe in global warming” come from? It originated from an endlessly reported 2009 American Geophysical Union (AGU) survey consisting of an intentionally brief two-minute, two question online survey sent to 10,257 earth scientists by two researchers at the University of Illinois. Of the about 3.000 who responded, 82% answered “yes” to the second question, which like the first, most people I know would also have agreed with.

Good job Senator Cruz! Keep their panties in a wad.
