Ted Cruz’s Earth gets warmer


If U.S. senator and now presidential candidate Ted Cruz ever stops being crazy, then I will stop talking about him; but, for now, the crazy rolls on.

Cruz compared people who think that climate change is influencing the Earth to “flat-Earthers,” people who believe the Earth is flat.

The flat Earth theory has not been reputable in hundreds of years, but apparently Cruz has missed that, just like he has been missing massive amounts of climate change data.

In an interview with the Texas Tribune, Cruz described himself as a modern-day Galileo Galilei.

Cruz has finally gone so crazy that he believes he is as influential and important as the man who developed the telescope and discovered Jupiter’s moons. All this because he does not believe the Earth is flat, even though practically nobody else on the planet believes that.

This is coming from the man who was named the chair of the Subcommittee on Space, Science and Competitiveness. It is slightly alarming that a man in that position does not believe widely tested science is true.

In an interview with reporter Jay Root, regarding climate change experts, Cruz said, “They brand you a heretic. Today, the global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-Earthers. It used to be [that] it is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat, and this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.”

Despite the fact that the Earth is still getting warmer, Cruz continues to bash climate change experts. In a recent interview, Cruz tried to use an article from a 1970s edition of Newsweek that talked about the idea of “global cooling” to debunk climate change.

Even the author of the article from Newsweek has said that it should not be used to try and debunk the idea of global warming or climate change.

This does not deter Cruz’s craziness, though.

During his speech declaring his run for the White House in 2016, Cruz openly bashed “Obamacare,” — the Affordable Care Act (ACA) — and promised to repeal “every word” of the law. The next day, Cruz made the announcement that he and his family were getting new health insurance through the federal exchange created by the ACA.

Maybe Cruz is the biggest hypocrite in the Senate, maybe he is hoping the exchange will fail and he can exploit it, or maybe he has just given up.

Nobody really knows why Cruz took this route to get his insurance, but it is obvious that Cruz can afford whatever healthcare he wants. Despite that fact, he and his family are now on the federal exchange.

Time will tell what Cruz’s political stances will be for the 2016 election, but it is certain that he will be a hot topic, as the media tends to flock to outlandish statements and nonsensical attitudes.
