On Climate Change, Ted Cruz Passes Science Test; Most Others Fail

Enter the Hangout

earthEver since God created this beautiful earth the climate has changed.  Twelve thousand years ago, glaciers covered large portions of northern Europe, Canada and the northern United States. Two hundred thousand years ago, the earth experienced an ice age.  A hundred thousand years ago the temperature warmed up and the glaciers melted.  And just five thousand years ago northern Europe had a warmer climate than today.  Our climate is always changing.

So, why are people on the left declaring that climate change is the biggest threat to United States national security today?  I don’t understand why this is even an issue because scientists have proven that our climate was changing long before the invention of automobiles and the industrial revolution. Both of these events  increased the amount of man-made pollutants released into the air.

Yes climate change is real and has been real for thousands of years. However, when most of our politicians discuss this issue they misinterpret or ignore scientific facts.

Dr. Jane Orient, Executive Director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, explains how Senator Ted Cruz understands the science behind climate change and Americans need to listen in the following guest post.

Cruz explained that science is not a matter of belief or computer models or expert opinion, but of objective data and facts. The fact is that satellite data show no rise in atmospheric temperature for nearly 20 years.

Cruz tops the honor roll of those intelligent and courageous enough to confront fraudulent establishment pseudoscience. It is not surprising that a highly skilled lawyer and a neurosurgeon are leaders, and the career politicians are trust-and-parrot followers of politicized science and a global big-government agenda.

In an exchange with a heckler, Ted Cruz himself gives a masterful mini-lecture demonstrating his grasp of the essence of science, confounding the major media reports that he “flunks” a test aced by Democrats contending for the Presidential nomination.

At a lobster restaurant, a “climate activist” demanded that Cruz answer—yes or no—the question “Do you deny climate change?”

The form of the question is the equivalent of “Do you deny that the earth is round?” The implication is that if the answer is “yes,” you are a medieval flat earther, and thus unqualified to be President.

Cruz explained that science is not a matter of belief or computer models or expert opinion, but of objective data and facts. The fact is that satellite data show no rise in atmospheric temperature for nearly 20 years.

He also points out that in the 1970s some of the very same scientists were predicting an ice age—if we didn’t adopt the same remedy that they are demanding now: drastic cuts in the use of the fuels that power the world’s economy.

And since people hit with record winter cold are finding it hard to “believe in” global warming, the threat has morphed into “climate change.” It might be cold, or warm, or dry, or wet, or stormy, but it will be unprecedented disaster—if we don’t cut the use of carbon-based fuels.

Three different apocalyptic scenarios—too cold, too hot, and changing—but the same remedy.

Cruz didn’t mention a still earlier threat, again with the same remedy: that we would run out of “fossil fuels.” The very name implies a limited supply from dead dinosaurs and primeval forests. The fact is we have plenty of hydrocarbon fuels to last for a century or two, especially of methane, the main component of natural gas.

There truly is an emergency though. A political emergency. If the “climate” activists don’t get their way at the Paris climate summit now underway, their drive toward a global wealth-redistribution, energy-rationing bureaucracy might fail. What if the sun enters a phase of less energy output, as many predict?

Obama is off to Paris, claiming that climate change is the greatest threat confronting humanity. Escalating tensions in Ukraine and the Middle East could set off a nuclear war. There is widespread civil strife, and hordes of migrants (mixed with jihadis) are overwhelming Europe. But climate change is a driver of conflict, says Prince Charles—still another problem with the same solution.

Apparently, all Democrats running for President agree with Obama. The Associated Press had eight scientists judge the “scientific accuracy” of candidates. Hillary Clinton was the star on their politically correct scale, scoring 94, while former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley earned a 91. Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders got only 87; he was downgraded for “exaggeration” during one of the debates, when he suggested that the earth may become “uninhabitable.”

The lead examiner was Michael Mann, best known for the “Mann-made hockey stick,” which supposedly proves the assertion of unprecedented rapid warming. This graph, based on “reconstructions” by secret methods of a limited set of historical “proxy” data such as tree rings, has been quietly withdrawn from official publications of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). This has not been announced by the major media.

The gang of eight inquisitors gave Cruz 6, Carson 13, Trump 15, Rubio 21, Fiorina 28, Paul 38, Kasich 47, Christie 54, and Bush 64 on their Mann-made, upside-down scale.

There is a multi-billion dollar global cabal of government-funded scientists, wealthy non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and crony capitalists that profit from “finding” human-caused climate effects or from tax subsidies for unreliable, economically nonviable, otherwise unaffordable substitutes for the fuels that make modern industry and prosperity possible. Their darlings like Mann resort to character assassination in an attempt to silence scientific critics, who face loss of their livelihood, onerous “investigations,” and even threats of prosecution for speaking out.

Cruz tops the honor roll of those intelligent and courageous enough to confront fraudulent establishment pseudoscience. It is not surprising that a highly skilled lawyer and a neurosurgeon are leaders, and the career politicians are trust-and-parrot followers of politicized science and a global big-government agenda.
