Gov. Christie admits climate
change is a real problem, that
human activity plays a role

Star-Ledger [Newark, NJ], by Christopher Baxter

Original Article

Posted By:Ribicon, 8/20/2013 5:33:02 PM

Trenton — In case anyone had any doubts on where Gov. Chris Christie stands on climate change, he made his position crystal clear this afternoon: It´s real and it´s a problem. 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

Comments:
Electable Jersey blowhard is saying all the right things to win the 2016 GOP nod.

And, like a pig at the trough, he´s embracing climate change just after the release of a federal post-Sandy study claiming that NJ needs to make substantial "investments" (no doubt involving "federal" dollars) to protect against rising sea levels.

Anything for a good time!

Go ahead, GOP, and nominate this guy; watch your base stay home, and Christie get creamed in the election. You idiots never learn.

This is a disqualifying position for a conservative politician in 2013. Five years ago, different story. But it is now abundantly clear that global warming isn´t happening. If your models don´t agree with what´s happening in the real world, it´s not the real world that is false.

He may be the media darling and the east coast selection but I don´t see him doing well in the flyover states. Of course, if he does get the nod, the media will immediately turn on him.

Typical rino, playing to the big $$$$$ donors & forgetting what the little people want. Didn´t they learn from Romney , you have to be more inclusive , not divisive. We have one divider in chief we don´t need another one. I predict he will be Hillary´s VP when he starts losing the south. Very odd he announced this the day he was visiting the big $$$$ donors.

Not the first time that Christie is wrong and certainly not the last.

In other news online ... Christie apparently learned Catholic doctrine from Nancy Pelosi. All over FB and Twitter.

#1) Is man made global warming real? #2) Is it a bad thing, or at what point does it become a bad thing? #3) Can it be arrested without sending the world´s economies to middle ages levels? 4). If global warming is determined a problem will technology bring an answer? Myself I believe Global Warming will benefit mankind. The Vikings discovered Greenland and named it thus, even grew grapes for wine. If the alarmists are correct Greenland (and much else) should have been underwater.

Christie is just like McCain. He says all the things the Democrats say thinking that will get him good press. The minute he becomes the nominee, the press will turn on him. If you ever expect good press and you are a Republican, you are afool. And this county has had all the fools we can stand. I want real conservative that will not allow the press to define them. One that des not suck up to the elites in th vain hope that they can become one of them.

Do Republicans even want the presidency? Most of the front runners and the recent candidates don´t seem to share even our establishment R´s sense of urgency to change direction. When candidates don´t have broken glass mentality about change, why should we?

In any society or group there is always the kook fringe. In the GOP´s case the kook fringe has a +65" waistline. This ice´s it for me. Christie is a certified kook. Carl Rove was on Fox the other night praising Christie and throwing the Libertarian Party hard under the bus and demonizing them as some kind of an anti American group of wackos that are a danger to the country. I went to the Libertarian Party´s website and read the Libertarian Party Platform from beginning to end. Just to refresh my memory and compare it to what Rove was flapping his jaws about. It seems they are all about what the GOP used to be all about. Sounds to me like Rove is afraid of them. He should be. I switched to Libertarian two months ago. Inform yourself, think about it, then decide to switch if you are completely left in the dirt by today´s GOP. I did and do not regret it at all. Ok Mister Dee Jay....que The Who, Won´t get fooled again...."I´ll tip my hat to the new constitution. Take a bow for the new revolution. Smile and grin at the change all around me. Pick up my guitar and play.
Just like yesterday. And I´ll get on my knees and pray. We don´t get fooled again. Don´t get fooled again. Change it had to come.
We knew it all along. We were liberated from the fall that´s all. But the world looks just the same. And history ain´t changed. ´Cause the banners, they all flown in the last war."

Admits? So he examined the falsified data and concluded that despite the need for data to be fabricated the conclusion it drove must be correct? Didn´t know the rotund one was a scientist, perhaps he should explore mass conservation, intake in pie hole minus output elsewhere equals accumulated mass. Not to mention energy conservation; potential chemical energy input minus energy consumed equals energy stored in fat cells.

The temperature of the sun is 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Just how in the Sam Hill does Christie think we can affect that? Global warming is a boondoggle, set up to reward the Solyndras of the world.
Christie got some points for speaking honestly when he was first elected. Now he is speaking politically, and forgot what got him there already.

#21 - You are correct. Democrats are like lemmings, practicing groupthink with just a few central brains and a lot of action based on what their arms and legs and mouths are told to do.

You´re right - Republicans generally are not like that. Hope you´re sitting - we think for ourselves!

I, however, have never NOT voted for a Republican. But - as they say - the times, they are a´ changin´.....

If the ´16 face-off comes down to Her Hillriness and The Republican Who Isn´t, there will be a WHOLE LOTTA NATION west of the eastern seaboard that will be fixin´ to not participate.

Hey, now, let the guy run if he wants to. And if the GOP wants to make him their nominee, that´s fine.

If he´s not who you want, then DON´T VOTE FOR HIM! VOTE FOR A THIRD-PARTY CANDIDATE OR EVEN A WRITE-IN INSTEAD!

Is your vote wasted? No! Your vote is wasted if you stay home and don´t vote or you vote for a person you don´t want in office.

Well, 43, for me it was this January 19,2011:

Quote: Chris Christie´s nomination of Sohail Mohammed to be a state judge shows the governor´s tin ear for radical Islam. Not only did he appoint a longtime mouthpiece for radical Islamists to be a judge, but Christie has also turned a blind eye to the activities of one of Mohammed´s clients – radical imam Mohammed Qatanani, head of one of New Jersey´s largest mosques.

Re 2, the base that stays home with a temper tantrum gives us the likes of obaMao and next time Hitlary or Biden. I can hold out and hole up as long as anyone in the base can but the country is in shreds. Maybe a rethink on staying home in the generals. I think no one is getting the message at the moment.

As for not wanting Christie, my sentiments are equal to poster 2. The man who would speak truth when no one else dared has devolved into a placating and pandering pol. I guess his thing is first to get the dem vote in NJ but he can stay there as far as I am concerned. Like Coulter, so over him.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

According to an arrest warrant, 43-year-old Dalephonia Booker is the owner of the Big Happy Family child care center, which earned a gross income of $592,470 between Aug. 1, 2011 and Dec. 31, 2012.

Louisville, Ky. — Could climate change mean paying more for your morning cup of coffee? One climate panel says "yes." According to the intergovernmental panel on climate change (IPCC), pests, rising heat and extreme temperatures resulting from climate change may actually impact the supply of coffee. The news has those in the coffee industry worried. "I am very concerned," said Mauricio Galindo, head of International Coffee Organization. "I would say climate change is the most serious threat to the sustainability of the coffee supply chain right now." The IPCC says that a temperature rise of just 2 to 2.5 centigrades

Roughly 25 Muslim drivers dispatched to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport are refusing to drive cabs adorned with advertising for the region’s upcoming Gay Games, citing religious reasons. Two of the three companies operating at Ohio´s largest airport were informed by the drivers — one-third of the airport’s total fleet — last week that they will no longer participate in the airport’s dedicated taxicab program. The companies, Ace and Yellow Taxi Cab, were told by the drivers that their decision was based on religious reasons, airport spokeswoman Jacqueline Mayo told FoxNews.com.

A suspect has been taken into custody in connection with a string of random highway shootings that left three people wounded in the Kansas City, Missouri, area. The male suspect has yet to be named as no charges have been filed, police chief Darryl Forte told a press conference on Thursday evening. Police said last week that they had connected 12 shootings since early March that have targeted vehicles on Kansas City-area roads. Investigators have looked into as many as 20 reported highway shootings as part of their investigation. Three people have been hit with bullets, and their injuries were

A man who beheaded his girlfriend before stabbing himself has been sentenced to life with a minimum term of 20 years in prison. Aras Hussein, 21, stabbed student Reema Ramzan, 18, in her chest with a kitchen knife and began to decapitate her while she was still alive. He then stabbed himself in the chest, took his clothes off and went outside his flat in Shirecliffe, Sheffield. A neighbour saw him standing naked and covered in blood while holding a wad of money and a passport. Hussein admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility but denied murder at his

After presenting at the Academy Awards this year, Kim Novak didn’t want to leave her house. The Hitchcock screen siren, 81, was too humiliated to venture from her home near the Rogue River in Oregon.

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

First, the good news: We are close enough to the end of the Obama presidency for his crowd to talk about a presidential library. Now, the bad news: Obama´s retirement is still 1,008 days distant. Plenty of time though to round up the dough to build it somewhere. Figure they need Solyndra-style money, at least $500 million. The last two presidents – Bill Clinton and George W. Bush -- built their legacy edifices totally with private money. [Snip] However, Obama supporters have a different take. They think taxpayers should put up $100 million in public money for Obama´s library.

Less than 16 hours after Chelsea Clinton announced she was pregnant, a lot of major news outlets started staring into the crystal ball of Chelsea’s womb, wondering what this currently floating zygotic multicellular being meant for the prospects of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign, which is also a floating, zygotic, multicellular being. Their answer: The immaculately conceived Clinton child could mean everything.

Remember when Lois Lerner, in answering a planted question at an American Bar Association conference, admitted the IRS had targeted conservative groups but tried to pass it off as the work of rogue agents — “our line people in Cincinnati”? Today we know there were indeed federal agents involved. But they weren’t rogue, and they weren’t confined to IRS workers in Cincinnati. Thanks to a Freedom of Information request by Judicial Watch, we now have an e-mail Lerner sent to colleagues noting the Department of Justice was looking into criminal prosecutions of these tax-exempt groups. We know something else, too. These investigations

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

The first step is admitting… It was a simple question to someone accustomed to much tougher ones: What was her proudest achievement as secretary of state? But for a moment, Hillary Rodham Clinton, appearing recently before a friendly audience at a women’s forum in Manhattan, seemed flustered.(Snip)So…no definitive successes and some clear-cut failures. And that’s the generous New York Times assessment. The Democrat fantasy story about Mrs. Clinton paints her as strong and accomplished on her own. In reality, this is a woman who is professionally defined almost entirely by two men in her life, both of whom happen to have
