Skip to comments.Chris Christie has the chance to be a real leader on climate change

In light of horrific wildfires, a historic drought and now the destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy, the political understatement of the year has to be President Barack Obama's recent comment to MTV. Asked about climate change's absence from all presidential debates for the first time in a generation, he said, "I am surprised it didn't come up."
Instead of "surprised" he should have said "appalled" -- because that's what he and most Americans should be. As Scientific American reports, while no one weather event can be blamed on climate change, science now definitively "link(s) climate change directly to intense storms and other extreme weather events."
Of course, the reason the issue hasn't "come up" in a presidential campaign roiled by climate-related disasters is because many voters refuse to acknowledge that human-intensified climate change is real.
This is why, just days before the national election, New Jersey's Republican Gov. Chris Christie is a potentially more important political figure than anyone running for the White House. Thanks to his fame, his credibility among conservatives and his ubiquitous media presence during the cataclysm, he has the rare chance to persuade Republicans to discard their denialism and finally face reality.

How much do donuts contribute to global warming?
Obama to Christie, “I’ve got fudge........Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses....We’re talkin’ Haagen Dazs, here, what do you say?”
The Onion? No?
It should be...
Chris Christie is a true treasure to this country. His ass is so big it blocks out at least 25% of all the harmful UV rays from the sun. He is however, a Democrat, a great big Blue Dog Democrat. So just say it, let it go and let him go. He doesn’t represent me or my party in any shape, matter or form.
By the way I see how that Hope we get some help, and Change your underware because they’re pulling guns on us because we don’t have anything to give them for free is going in New York.
By the way please turn Bloomberg loose by himself in the wiped out areas. Then put that on Tru TV later. That would be a hoot! I bet he could run a New York Marathon trying to get away!
Murphy’s law. Just when you think you’ve idiot proofed something. They will invent a better idiot...
The Left exemplifies this axiom...
ALL the evidence indicates that global warming has reached catastrophic levels. Except global temperature, which hasn’t changed in sixteen years.
The only real super hurricane to hit above Hatteras in the past 150 years was in 1938
Was that global warming
These libs are like superstitious witch doctor peoples
Long on fear short on knowledge
With his head so far up Obama’s a$$ he don’t know what what the climate is really like.
He’s a first class bull sh*tter just like his butt girl Coulter. Yak, yak, yak.
