Anti-Science Quotable: Ted Cruz – climate change deniers are heretics like Galileo…. WTF? #science

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.

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 to 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.

Today the global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-earthers. You know it used to be: ‘It is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat.’ And this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.

Potential Presidential candidate Ted Cruz

While I also believe in following evidence and data, we probably disagree on its interpretation. Cruz doesn’t seem to notice that the logic of comparing himself to Galileo is back-asswards, not unlike his views on most issues.
