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.

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.
