Says climate change is “impacting our state.”
3 Oct 11 – Presidential candidate Herman Cain said today* that Gov. Christie “is far too liberal on gun control, climate change, same-sex unions, and immigration to satisfy Republican voters.”
“Many applauded Christie’s decision to withdraw the state from the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative that would have required that a percentage of energy serving New Jerseyeans come from “renewable” sources, wind and solar power,” says Alan Caruba.
“However,” Caruba continues, “in August Gov. Christie signed an act that would facilitate offshore wind power for use in the state. Had he signed an act to permit offshore drilling for oil and natural gas, the state and the nation would have been far better served. Wind power would only increase the cost of electricity.”
“Moreover, Gov. Christie is on record saying that climate change is “impacting our state,” says Caruba. “This is a position that is 180 degrees from a town hall meeting the previous year when he declared himself skeptical that climate change is the result of human activity.”
With that attitude, I agree with Alan Caruba that Gov. Christie Should Not Get in the GOP Race.
