Chris Christie’s Position on Climate Change Depends on the Last Thing He Watched


Doubting man-made climate change is the big thing in Republican circles these days. Nearly every Republican running for the Senate this year denies that humans are contributing to a rise in the Earth’s temperature, while 53 percent of tea-party supporters don’t think climate change will ever have any “serious impact” on the planet, according to a Times poll. A Politico article recently suggested that “[i]t’s going to be hard winning the Republican presidential nomination if you’re not a climate skeptic.” Perhaps it’s a good move, then, for New Jersey governor Chris Christie, who could very well run for president in 2016, to err on the side of skepticism, as he did at a town hall yesterday.

Does it help that the people who did become scientists have figured it out already?
