“The Daily Show” broke down presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) “cute” take on the data behind rising global temperatures on Monday night’s episode.

“What Ted Cruz has done here is kinda cute,” host Trevor Noah said. “You see, he’s technically correct, that according to the satellite data, there hasn’t been a significant increase in global temperatures in 18 years. But we don’t usually measure in time periods of 18 years unless you’re calculating child support.”

Rising global temperatures have to be measured over greater time periods.

“That’s the only way the data works in his favor,” Noah said.
