Jerry Brown: Cruz 'Absolutely Unfit to be Running for Office'

Monday, 23 March 2015 07:46 AM

Democratic California Gov. Jerry Brown has called Texas Sen. Ted Cruz a bald-faced ignorant liar on climate change and "absolutely unfit to be running for office."

Just hours before Cruz announced he was joining the presidential race, Brown appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" and was shown footage of the Republican senator talking about the environment on "Late Night with Seth Meyers."

Story continues below video.

Brown, whose state is in the midst of a dire water shortage, reacted angrily to Cruz's comments, declaring, "I say what he said is absolutely false.

"That man betokens such a level of ignorance and a direct falsification of the existing scientific data. It's shocking and I think that man has rendered himself absolutely unfit to be running for office."

Last week, Cruz told Meyers, "I just came back from New Hampshire where there's snow and ice everywhere. And my view actually is simple.

"Debates on this should follow science and should follow data. And many of the alarmists on global warming, they've got a problem because the science doesn't back them up."

But on Sunday's "Meet the Press," Brown fired back, "Look, they say the scientists know more about it. I will tell you this, our research results…say there's a connection to the current drought and extreme weather in the East, other parts of the world.

"The U.N. has already said there's going to be 40 percent of the world will suffer from water shortage."

Brown said the drought in California is linked to carbon emissions from the coal industry and other sources, and that Washington leaders need to take drastic action to prevent more long-term climate consequences, NBC News reported.

"This is a serious matter we're experiencing in California, as kind of a foretaste. But there is no doubt that into the future, we're going to have more problems," he added.
