No, Thank You… Chris Christie: Climate Change Is Real

No, thank you.
Granted, Chris Christie is a Republican star. He deserves all the credit in the world for taking on the state teacher’s union “political thugs” in New Jersey. But, his stand on global warming climate change is very concerning. The last thing we need as a country is both parties pushing expensive, ineffective and failed green energy policies that have no effect on the climate.

Governor Chris Christie says climate change is real.
The Politico reported this on the popular governor’s recent announcement:

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 words are his strongest to date in regards to climate change, a hot-button issue among the same conservatives nationwide who are clamoring for the governor to enter the 2012 presidential race.

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.

    Hope those climate scientist are NASA related and they bring along plaster casts of big foot to bolster their claims.

  • Major Kong

    Hugely disappointing.

    He also doesn,’t seem to think there is anything to worry about with sharia law.

  • DINORightMarie

    Of COURSE climate change is real – it’s called weather! 😉 But that is not what Christie is talking about, of course.

    This is a death knell to anyone who thought Christie was a viable alternative to Teh Won.

  • Sparky

    Christie is a fiscal Conservative but in every other way he is a RHINO! He comes from New Jersey, the land of Democratic lunacy.

    Why do Americans have so much trouble seeing past the veneer of these loud mouths and look into what they are really about.

    Palin is still the only one that “what you see is what you get.”

    When I was in public school back in the 50s they taught us that there was a rather significant ice age around 100,000 years ago. If that is still true (I don’t know what they teach as science these days), then that means that global warming has been going on for way longer than I’ve been driving my SUV. Stop Cap and Trade.

    @ ar05075

    Yeah these 2 most recent developments seal the deal for me… Having opposing views on my alpha & gamma issues mean Christie’s not what I’m looking for in a POTUS Candidate.

    I”m hearing he’s a squish on Immigration as well so he’s on the wrong side of my beta issue as well… STRIKE 3!!!

  • Eddie Willers

    @ Sparky & others who do it as well
    It’s not “RHINO” the term is “RINO” which is an acronym for

    Republican In Name Only

    Better the 1 string sting, than a whole election cycle looking like a political newbie.

  • MDd

    Christie believes we need to regularize immigration, including amnesty too. Just what we need, a GOP Prez that can give cover (just supporting our President) to all the RINOs in Congress to pass Cap & Trade and Amnesty.

  • Granny

    I also hear he is a big supporter of IWonWTF . . . . . though the global warming BS alone is enough to make me discount him entirely. Truthfully, though, I think this is just a media circus anyway . . . a little slight of hand to distract us. Christy isn’t running. And while I’m at it, let me point out to Donald Trump that he lost the Conservative vote the very second he accepted the latest fake birth certificate as valid without so much as running it through a document expert. He’s done too . .

  • Major Kong

    So, apparently Gaia can warm up all by herself without any help from human beings. Geez, who woulda thunk it?

    BTW Kids are being taught that the United States of America is an evil, resource-exploiting, behemoth that is killing the rest of the world’s (especially third world) inhabitants.

  • Stuffy

    Deal breaker, this is. Christie is unfit for higher office until he can recognize a base level scam.

  • Tru

    Ann Coulter has lost all cred cheerleading for Christie. She knows all of this and he’s still her BFF.

  • Bill Mitchell

    That smoke you smell isn’t the Earth burning, it is Chris Christie’s political future going up in flames.

    My problem isn’t so much that he believes in AGW, my problem is that he is STUPID ENOUGH to believe in AGW which, along with being stupid enough to believe being fat doesn’t risk his health, disqualifies him in my mind for higher office.

    I’ve never gone from fan to foe quite so fast in my life.

    God only knows what Rush will do with THIS on Monday.

  • NeoKong

    Aahh….I like the guy but POTUS….?

    Don’t think so.

    That said, he still would be ten times better than the community organizer and his lobster munching wife.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Rick Perry is smiling right about now.

    Also, it just made it much easier for him to pick Rubio as his running mate.

  • Bill Mitchell

    Maybe Christie just said this so everyone would stop bugging him to run?

  • Mrs. X

    This is a deal breaker for me.
    I’m starting to think the only person I want to vote for is Sarah Palin and she isn’t running…yet.

    NJ, you can keep CC!

  • tommy mc donnell
