Chris Christie: It’s ‘My Feeling’ That Climate Change Isn’t A Crisis

December 1, 2015 3:02 p.m.

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) on Tuesday morning said that while he believes that human activity contributes to climate change, he does not feel that it’s a “crisis.”

“The climate’s always changing, and we cannot say that our activity does not contribute to changing the climate. What I’m saying is, it’s not a crisis,” he said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Co-host Joe Scarborough then mentioned that the past few years have seen record-setting heat.

“I don’t buy that, Joe,” Christie said in response. “I don’t see there’s any evidence that it’s a crisis.”

And when asked what scientist agrees with him that climate change is not a crisis, Christie said, “That’s my feeling. I didn’t say I was relying on any scientist.”
