As potential presidential candidates go, he makes an excellent governor of New Jersey.
and another flavor of the week falls as his conservative credentials, or lack thereof, surface.
NO MORE RINOS!!
Stay in New Jersey please.
somebody tell Ann Coulter.
Christie: Climate change is real
Prove it, you idiot.
He ain’t running for sure now.
We are in an Inter-Glacial period.
Has it warmed up over the last 10,000 years? Yes.
Was it caused by man? No.
Wow... Sometimes when you see what comes out of a candidate’s (or potential candidate’s) vetting, you may not agree with totally everything they’ve done, or you may not think she or he took the best route on a particular issue, but this is just over the top. If it is true that Chris Christie is a global warming loon, then he should not be on any part (ANY part) of a Republican presidential ticket what-so-ever.
Climate change IS real - and has been happening cyclically since the dawn of time.
The issue is: Can humans cause it? Can humans make it better? Or worse?
The answer to that is a resounding “Hell no!” - if Christie believes otherwise, then he’s on the nutty scale right out there with Ron Paul and squirrel dung at a Planter’s factory.
I know he was everyone’s superstar, but something about him gives me the creeps. Seriously! Not looks, or weight, and totally unscientific opinion here... but my gut feeling has always been irked with him.
Climate change is real. It has been going on since the beginning of time. But the assertion that human activity is playing a role in climate change is nonsense.
People who do not understand science need to at least know who to believe. Christie has been all over the place in his quest of who to believe.
Scientists who do not have a vested interest in man caused global warming are the ones from whom to seek advice, not the AGW crowd, a very large group. AGW is an acronym for Anthropogenic Global Warming, or man caused global warming.
Whatever “climate change” may ge attributed to human activity, is probably cancelled out by OTHER human activity that causes the reversal of the effects of the primary activity.
So human activity may very well be entirely neutral on whatever range of “climate change” takes place. Expenditure of huge sums of money we DON’T have is not justified.
Adjust to the climate in which you live. Do not attempt to adjust the climate, as that is clearly a task of such enormous proportions, and of so many unknown factors, that such an objective will remain far beyond human capabilities for centuries if not eons.
This does not mean we cannot or should not change the immediate local environment, but that trying to change the entire planet (which has already evolved some pretty spectacular control mechanisms) is futile and useless at best, and only results in a permanent state of decivilization at worst.
And despite its faults, civilization certainly is better than the alternative.
When you say you don’t believe in Global Bullsh!t. You are then basically hounded and embarrassed (by the lib media) to “come full circle.” It’s so predictable.
I bet Perry backs off his statements too. The press are like nazis.
And this is why he won’t be a winning candidate for primary voters....he is no way a conservative. He’s good for NJ but not for the rest of us!!!!
If the climate is warming that’s a good thing....disaster is when it starts to cool into the next ice age!!!!
Climate change is real. It has been changing for 4.6 billion years. Can we spend enough to change the natural changes that are occuring? NO! Sit down and shut up Christie—take a freshman Geology course and you will understand it better.
Buh Bye Fat Boy!
But the question is, is it caused by human activity? Well, I doubt it. The scientific evidence does NOT seem to support it, but the fact that some of the scientists have monkeyed with the data proves that THEY don't believe it. The fact that it's supported by people who stand to make BILLIONS of dollars from the legislation they've introduced makes me doubt it. And finally, the fact that it's become something of a "religion" to many of the supporters who defend it almost violently, and declare those who don't agree as "heretics" and need to be silenced, makes me even more skeptical.
The question is, can we do anything about climate change? I doubt it, but it seems to me that the prudent thing to do would be to spend time and effort on living with it, as opposed to tiling at windmills, trying to stop it.
While I appreciate Chris Christie's efforts to make New Jersey more business friendly to attract more jobs to that state, I'm sad to see what I'm discovering about Chris Christie and his progressive leaning stand on "sustainable cities".
