Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on Sen. Ted Cruz’s Climate Change Denial

“All over the news we see extreme weather stories -- record cold in the Northeast, rain storms in Las Vegas and a report* showing a 400% increase in flooding in Miami over the last decade. Sen. Ted Cruz has called climate change a ‘pseudo-scientific theory.’** Maybe he’s got a better explanation. After all, it could be Noah’s flood.”
