Sen. Ted Cruz is promising, if elected president, to pull the United States out of the nonbinding climate change accord that nearly 200 countries agreed to earlier this month. Cruz is one of the most skeptical candidates on climate change, refusing to grant even that the world is warming, let alone endorse the scientific consensus that human activity is the main cause of it. He repeated his contention that global temperatures have not risen for 18 years, calling it “an inconvenient truth” for climate activists, a reference to the title of former Vice President Al Gore’s documentary on global warming. Cruz chaired a hearing to that effect earlier in December, in which he railed against “global-warming alarmists” who do not like that the world has stopped heating up and called them part of a “climate-industrial complex.”
