Ted Cruz (R-TX) likened himself to Galileo as he defended his position as a climate change denier in an interview Tuesday in New York City with the Texas Tribune. … “I’m a big believer that we should follow the science and follow the evidence,” Cruz said. …

Cruz further dismissed advocates of climate change, noting that they only sought to impose “government control of the energy sector and every aspect of our lives.” … He cited a 1970 Newsweek article that touted “global cooling,” a trend that, he said, wasn’t supported by data, as support for his belief that we should “follow the science.”

“I am the child of two mathematicians and scientists,” Cruz said. “I believe in following evidence and data.” … “Today the global warming alarmists are the equivalent of the flat-earthers,” Cruz continued. “You know it used to be: ‘It is accepted scientific wisdom the Earth is flat.’ And this heretic named Galileo was branded a denier.”
