The government regulations put in place to combat the "pseudoscientific theory" of man-made climate change drive up the cost of living for everyday Americans, GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz told CNBC on Friday.
"If you look at the world of global warming, it has become, in effect, a religion rather than a science," the Texas senator said in a "Squawk Box" interview.
Expressing skepticism about whether changes in climate threaten the planet, Cruz blasted what he suggested was the left's one-size-fits-all approach: "Whether it gets hotter or it gets colder, whether it gets wetter or drier, the climate is always changing. And the solution is identical … [for] cooling and warming. It's massive government control over the economy."
