Christie denies Sandy link to climate change: It’s ‘liberal public radio’ agenda

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Monday blasted local public radio in New York and New Jersey for linking climate change to Hurricane Sandy as part of what he said was a liberal “agenda.”

A WNYC/New Jersey Public Radio report released earlier this month found that New Jersey Transit had not prepared for storms brought on by climate change like Hurricane Sandy.

A reporter for the public radio station asked Christie for a reaction to the report at an ceremony for boardwalk repair in Lavallette on Monday.

“Well, first of all, I don’t agree with the premise of your question because I don’t think there’s been any proof thus far that Sandy was caused by climate change,” the governor replied. “But I would absolutely expect that that’s exactly what WNYC would say, because you know liberal public radio always has an agenda.”

“And so since I disagree with the premise of your question, I don’t feel like I have to answer the rest of it.”

Following the super storm last year, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) had quickly come to conclusion that climate change had a role.

“It’s a longer conversation, but I think part of learning from this is the recognition that climate change is a reality, extreme weather is a reality, it is a reality that we are vulnerable,” Cuomo said.

Christie's no friend to Democrats or common sense, which is generally what only Democrats possess. If he's running for President, he'll have to talk like the crazies and that will be his downfall.

No matter. Steve Addobato of PBS will still lick Christie's balls, giving him hours of free positive publicity in "interviews" on channel 13.

I hate his politics, and anyone who doesn't believe climate change is responsible for the devastating storms worldwide is an idiot.

This is an awesome line though and I'm going to steal it!
