Chris Christie and Climate Skeptics-The governor won’t meet with a leading New Jersey warmist critic
American Spectator ^ | 5.9.13 | KEVIN MOONEY

The governor won’t meet with a leading New Jersey warmist critic.

Hello from the Paul Robeson Center for The Arts, located on Paul Robeson Place, just a few blocks down from Princeton University. They like their hardcore communists here in Central Jersey. But they also make really great coffee, which is why I make it a point to meet up with my long-time lefty friend in Palmer Square where we have plenty of options. In print, we’ll call her “Moonbeam,” to prevent our association from destroying her standing in the community, and to make it clear that her environmental policy stances are detached from reality.

I’m scheduled to have lunch later in the day with William Happer, a leading climate skeptic and professor of physics at Princeton University. He’s not convinced human activity is the primary driver of warming and cooling trends, and sees mostly natural influences at work. Happer is not alone.

Over 1,000 scientists have gone on record to dispute the findings of the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which has been used to advance the idea that human emissions are largely responsible for the warming that occurred in the latter half of the 20th century. The IPCC also claims anthropogenic (manmade) global warming will likely lead to catastrophic climate change. This means government officials must intervene to restrict fossil fuel use and other industrial activities to save the planet. That’s the standard line widely embraced by the mainstream media, but it’s wearing thin in light of new evidence that show solar rays and other astronomical influences are largely responsible for global warming. The Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), which is set to release a new report this year, probes the connection between solar activity and climate change much to the consternation of...

This guy’s tacking left so fast I can only assume he’s angling for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination.

i notice how the enrichers of economic terrorist Al Gore always speak in parts per million....Like they say “CO2 is at 400 PPM..A dangerous level!’ They never speak in percentages, such at “The percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere is 0.04%” because they know people will look at that and say “Hey that’s zero point zero!”

Some of the people who supported Christie early on, should be a little embarrassed by him now. He is turning into another pop culture, pop science wonder. He will never get the GOP nomination, not even if he loses 300 pounds, but he is well positioned to run as a Democrat or an independent, whatever boat keeps him afloat politically.

I don’t know about global warming as such, but I suspect that the state of New Jersey is noticeably warmer from all the f*rts let loose by that fat pig sitting in the governor’s chair.

Probably that also explains why Sandy hit the Jersey Shore so hard. It was the result of Christie induced climate change.

CO2 is just short of 4 parts out of 10,000

Same as occupying 4 seats in a 10,000 capacity stadium

Christie can't be bothered listening to William Happer, one of the better known physicists in the country. Christie is smart enough to go to law school and pass the bar, but he can't figure out that this is probably the biggest fraud in history!

Well, as long as he’s only wasting the money of the New Jersey electric bill payers (on things such as the solar panels being installed on utility poles), it’s OK with me. I don’t want him to be anywhere where he can waste money on a national scale.

There’s a lot of BIG money to be made by politicians with their “climate change” scam. Christie is definitely a politician. We learned that during the Hurricane Sandy fiasco.

RINO Fatty’s lurching left—as usual.

He will NEVER understand, nor did John McC, That the MSM will NEVER back him for office (it WILL try to get him the nomination first, then the chop).

Princeton: possibly the dullest university town in the entire universe. One street running through it with mediocre restaurants and one (ONE!) lousy bookstore if you don’t count the college’s bookstore that sells lousy t-shirts of their football team and the works of existential Frenchmen. I don’t think they even have a retro cinema anymore. Asbury Park has more culture!

He’s tacking left so he can be reelected in blue NJ.

Normally, presidential primary candidates tack right, then move to the middle for the general election.

In states like NJ and NY, you go to the left, and then a little less to the left to get elected...

I was saying that as a facetious reference to the statist-tyrants-lite the GOP has nominated in the last two presidential election, followed by the easy-to-predict (by anyone who doesn’t live in DC) loss to the real thing. If you’re going to vote statist tyrant, why not vote for the experts, rather than the wanna-be’s?

The fumes from Governor Fatass’s rectal emmisions probably do more to contribute to “global warming” than anything.

The NY Times editorial board would write a negative piece about Christie if he showed some weakness in his pro-global warming position, and between now and 2016, Christie will do nothing (intentionally) that might cause a frown from the NY Times editorial board.

He is in full leftist media courting mode, because like many GOP suckers before him, he thinks he can get them to like him past the primaries.

Dumbass.

Stay a fatass as well as a fathead, Christie. I won’t be supporting you either way.

Not acknowledging that gorebal warming is junk science is the height of ignorance.

This is his re-election year and under no circumstances would I vote for him if I lived in New Jersey.

I’d vote against him in the GOP primary and vote third party in the general.

NO MORE VOTES FOR RINOS......

And the thing is if those 4 seats are reduced to 2 seats, no more Al Gore. No more anybody. Plants die and we die. So um, why are they talking about reducing it? Shouldn’t we be like “Holy shet! Raise that damn thing up!”

You ever see that movie “The Road”? It’s about a father and son trying to survive in a world where all plants have died off and as a result so have the animals, and people (what’s left of them) resort to cannibalism. It’s from a book by Cormac McCarthy.

I read one lib reviewer saying the movie was about an “apocalypse caused by global warming” LOL! If CO2 ever got to such a huge amount to actually cause a greenhouse effect, plants would be the absolute LAST things that would die off! There would be so many plants we’d be choking on them.

You know where they got this global warming crap from? From greenhouses. Actual greenhouses where you grow plants. I just *know* that’s how this all started, I use to work in one out in Long Island during the summers when I was going to school.

Some moron noticed that when you go into a greenhouse it’s warmer inside than it is outside. And since gardeners pump CO2 into it, some moron went “Ah HA! The cause of the heat is the CO2!” When in actuality it is the water vapor combined with the suns rays through the glass. This is how Venus became a greenhouse planet. Libs always state the cause was CO2, but it wasn’t. It was water vapor which trapped the CO2, the CO2 came later. CO2 raises temperature, but the amount on earth is so incredibly minuscule it’s like putting a drop of ink into the Pacific and saying all the oceans of the world are now polluted, it’s absolutely insane thinking. And then sometimes then mention methane which is even more ludicrous. Methane has a percentage of 0.00017%!! There’s more of Al Gore freakin lice mites floating in the air than there is methane!

It's like putting 28,000 cubic miles of ink into the Pacific (70,000,000 cubic miles) and stirring. That';s a lot of ink. The rise in CO2 from 300ppm to 400ppm might have caused a half degree C rise in temperature globally. But the global rise is inconsequential and trivial. The thermostat for the planet is mostly by the weather. A good example is that the polar jet can cool the planet if it slows and wanders a lot.

The climate models mostly predict doom from having a faster and northerly polar jet, fewer storms, and less "extreme" weather in general. The fact that the doom sayers yap about blocking patterns and extreme weather means they know nothing about climate models, nothing about weather and nothing about climate.

The air in our large American cities used to be a lot more polluted and harbors were polluted. We had acid rain. I saw this first hand when I was little. Most of this has been cleaned up in the last 50 years but even back then no one was dying right and left from pollution. People are pretty tough. But the people born since 1970 and 1980 have no memory of this and how much we have cleaned things up. Plus they have grown up in more prosperous and more antiseptic circumstances than I did.

If you are under 40 and grew up in a nice clean rich suburb you might have grown up somewhat spoiled and sheltered and somewhat hysterical about certain unclean things. These are the circumstances that at least 80% of our younger movers and shakers grew up in. Then they took lots of squishy liberal arts course in college. These are the people who are coming into power who are hysterical about perceived insults to the human race and mother earth that global warming is producing and will be doing a lot more of. They are like women in the old cartoons who would get hysterical about a mouse in the kitchen, jump up on a stool and start screaming

Bruce Springsteen is this dude’s idol and refused to meet with him or talk to him...Until Hurricane Sandy. When Guv Christie bowed and scraped sufficiently to Pres. JugEars Brucie declared CC an OK guy and met with him.

Gov Christie could not contain his joy. So what if kissing Obama’s butt helped him beat George Romney!

Christie's pal Barack Obama said with a straight face that global warming caused Hurricane Sandy. At the same time NOAA, NASA and the National Weather Service were saying there was no correlation between Sandy and global warming.
