Climate Sunday: Hey, "Galileo", there is no Planet B!
Senator Ted Cruz is not suited to be the Chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Space, Science, and Competitiveness . He's pretty well revealed he isn't. In fact, he's as brutally dumb as Sen. Inhofe. And yet he's recently compared himself to Galileo, as if his "contrarianism" (not to say "denialism") is somehow a virtue of his more exact observation of what is going on with the climate.
Except no one could accuse Ted Cruz of making any cogent observations at all. 13 of 14 recent years were the hottest on this planet. Sea-level rise is observable. California, which grows about a quarter of our food, is running out of water. These are things that are happening now, and need to be addressed now. Which is why I agree with CA Gov. Brown on this one.
