CRUZ CONTROL FOR THOSE FOLLOWING HIS MISLEADING SET POINT FOR BASING CLAIMS OF NO INCREASE IN ALREADY OVERLY WARM CLIMATE,ETC.;-) AND IGNORING OTHER CRITICAL FACTORS SUPPORTING “SCIENCE”:-*

However, focusing on that period essentially means cherry-picking a timeframe that starts at an extremely warm year and ignores that the first decade of the 21st century — even as it’s been stable — has been the warmest on record. While scientists don’t deny that there’s been a recent “pause” in warming, they expect it to be a temporary trend. Not only is one anomalous period not enough to undercut longer-term projections, but other types of measurements do show evidence of continued global warming over the past two decades, including rising ocean temperatures and shrinking sea ice.

Cruz’s statement contains an element of truth but ignores critical facts that would give a different impression, so we rate it Mostly False.
