Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) is expected to name former technology executive Carly Fiorina as his vice presidential pick. The former head of Hewlett-Packard Co. has acknowledged human activity contributes to climate change but said technological innovation—and not federal regulations—should fuel solutions.
"I'm prepared to take the scientists at their word—scientists say climate change is man-made,” Fiorina said in May 2015 on the NBC program Late Night with Seth Meyers. But "why would we destroy all these jobs with regulations when the answer to climate change is innovation, not regulation? We're just kind of shooting ourselves in the head and in the foot right now.”
Fiorina has argued the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulation of carbon dioxide emissions from power plants is “shutting down every ounce of innovation in this area.”
“I think too many politicians are paying attention only to the part of the science that confirms their ideology,” Fiorina said in a February 2015 interview.
Fiorina, who dropped out of the Republican presidential race on Feb. 10 and previously lost a bid for the U.S. Senate in California in 2010, has warned the U.S. cannot solve climate change alone and chastised the Obama administration for calling climate change the most pressing national security issue.
Nevertheless, it will be interesting to see how—or if—she addresses climate change as Cruz’s running mate. The Texas senator has been an outspoken denier of the scientific consensus that human activity causes climate change.
He has previously called it “the perfect pseudo-scientific theory” on the campaign trail and held a Senate hearing in December 2015 that attempted to cast doubt on what he described as the “political theory” of climate change.
