Christie: Climate change is real
By MAGGIE HABERMAN | 8/19/11 9:57 PM EDT
Chris Christie made clear he falls in the Jon Huntsman camp as opposed to the Rick Perry camp on the scientific-political issue of the week in the Republican primary:
In vetoing a bill (S2946) that would have required New Jersey to stay in a regional program intended to curb greenhouse gases a program Christie plans to leave by the end of the year the governor said "climate change is real."
He added that "human activity plays a role in these changes" and that climate change is "impacting our state."
Christie's come full circle on the issue. Last year, he told a town hall audience in Toms River he was skeptical climate change is the result of human activity. He backed off those comments at a conference of environmentalists in May and agreed to meet with climate scientists for a lesson in global warming.

Yeah, climate change is real. We call them seasons! I live in New England. The climate changes hear everyday. And not using aerosol or rinsing out my tuna cans isn’t going to do a damn thing about it.
Consider the thermal map of the grass below:
As a real life example, there is solid scientific evidence to suggest that the Sahara Desert was induced by exactly such causes, as a trophic cascade of events that began in the Near East 6,000 years ago subsequent to 9,000 years of continuous nomadic hunting and grazing. At that time, there was a river across the Saudi Peninsula five miles wide. There was a lake above Oman nearly 100 miles across. There are hippopotamus teeth still on the ground. In fact, I think the Hebrew in the old Cain and Abel story chronicles these very events (I've been working on a new translation for about a year).
Desertification happens fast, and when it does, the results can be huge.
The thermal plume of heat adsorbed by that rocky surface extends from Saudi Arabia, all the way to the Caribbean.
Contrast the effect of the central xeric Asian/African surface to the effect South American vegetation exerts. This is independent of the heat concentrations in the centers of the oceanic gyres (circular currents with no sinking mechanism but evaporation).
My hypothesis is that this is REAL anthropogenic climate change, and the policies of the United States government are abetting its equivalent in the American Southwest.
Say “goodnight”, Chris.
You echo my sentiments exactly.
Christie is in love with the sound of his own voice. He likes to hear himself talk to the media. Many of us figured he'd stick his foot in his mouth sooner or later when his latent liberalism would pop out despite his best efforts.
He didn't disappoint.
Ann Coulter only cares that he’s not Palin.
Pray for America
AAAAAND.....we’re done. Thank you and good night, Mr Christie.
Perry Will Win Big
I long ago abandoned any hope of Chris Christie being a conservative that I could support in the 2012 presidential election. This kind of nonsense is one reason why. It’s too bad Ann Coulter decided to support a RINO that has zero chance of winning the Republican presidential nomination.
Another RINO bites the dust. Globull warming and thinking muzzies are great. Two good reason for Christie to stay in New Jersey.
Chrisitie is nothing but a loud mouth, fat fraud. The guy talks a good game when it comes to unions but that’s it. Furthermore, when he does attack union representatives it’s usually some wimpy guy representing the teacher’s union or a female teacher. I’ve never seen him get in the face of a true union thug. He is a bully by all accounts.
Climate Change IS real. 16,000 Years ago, New Jersey was covered by a mile DEEP Glacier.
It melted. Not man’s fault. Period.
When that Glacier decides it wants to come back, are we going to pay people to release CO2 to save New Jersey from being scraped off the map?
Take the fork out of your mouth, Christie and stick it in yourself. You are done.
There have been times in human history, and way way before it, of dramatically different global climate.
There are three real questions.
Is it going up or down?
How much does human activity influence it?
And is this a good thing or a bad thing?
Now when I was very young they were saying it was cooling and it was going to be disastrous and man was most certainly to blame - capitalism especially.
Now they are saying it is warming and it is going to be disastrous and man was most certainly to blame - capitalism especially.
The Medieval warm period seemed to be good times and good wines for all involved - are they growing grapes in England again yet - or is it not yet that warm?
Note from info below that Chris Christie not only believes in global warming (aka AGW / anthropogenic global warming), he stands strongly for government control of our society so as to reduce greenhouse emissions.
GOP Gov. Chris Christie: We have an obligation to reduce our Greenhouse Gas emissions.
May 27, 2011
Excerpts from url above
Surveying the reality-free Tea Party freak show that is the current republican presidential field, Christie has opted out. And he has fired the first shot of his 2016 campaign by committing himself to a program of free-market incentives for combatting climate change, reducing greenhouse emissions, and accelerating New Jerseys development of renewable energy and conservation.
..Our commitment continues to combatting climate change, and looking for new, clean, and cleaner energy sources..
..were committed to putting in place policies that actively work to decrease greenhouse gas emissions, and achieve the 22.5 percent Renewable Portfolio Standard target by 2021..
The cleanest energy is the energy that you dont use the state has to lead in terms of conservation, and so were going to lead by example on energy efficiency.
we remain completely committed to the idea that we have a responsibility as a state to make the environment of our state, and the world, better..
we have an obligation to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.
(End of excerpts)
If you are having a hard time believing Chris Christie would believe in global warming and government control of cities and individuals to reduce greenhouse emissions, see the two videos posted at the link on this post. You’ll be sickened.
Which, come to think of it, is probably a good thing for America. Christie might be good on the fiscal issues but I have a feeling he'd nominate nothing but Left-Wing Hacks for Judgeships.
Next RINO please....
real simple litmus test... How do you feel on the global warming scam?
Owning a weapon?
those three things tell you if they believe in life, liberty and the constitution or are quisling, cowardly traitors.
