Sen. Ted Cruz warned Democrats could destroy the country if they are allowed to implement aggressive reforms to combat climate change.
“What is dangerous about the climate movement is it has become an emotional primal scream, rather than being driven by science,” the Texas Republican said in a campaign ad released Tuesday.
The minute-and-a-half ad features prominent Democrats who issue dire warnings about a warming planet and implore the public to take climate change more seriously.
“By 2030, no more cars. By 2035, no more production of electricity,” the video shows Sen. Elizabeth Warren saying at a campaign event.
Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez also makes an appearance. “The world is going to end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change,” the New York Democrat said.
Cruz warned political leaders who are calling for aggressive climate change reforms are also advocating for a more socialized American economic system.
“Climate is a good excuse to say you’ve got to have socialism, or else, all of humanity is going to die,” Cruz said.
The senator also said legislation such as the Green New Deal and a new push by Democrats to ban fracking is too dangerous to even consider.
“It would be hard to find something more economically devastating,” he said.
