US: Ted Cruz says he doesn't believe in science behind global warming

  • Texas senator Ted Cruz has expressed serious doubts over the science behind global warming. The Republican presidential candidate said “data and facts don’t support” the occurrence of global warming.

    He also slammed new regulations which the US federal government is introducing to cut carbon emissions from power plants.

    Cruz is seeking to take a tough line on what he sees as “massive government control” over the economy by the Obama administration, which is taking steps to address climate change.
