Scientists critical of Christie’s dismissive remarks on climate change
(MCT) — HACKENSACK, N.J.—A day after Gov. Chris Christie dismissed questions about whether climate change fueled Superstorm Sandy, scientists maintained Wednesday that global warming and sea level rise must be taken into account when rebuilding the Jersey Shore.
Meteorologists and climate experts criticized Christie for remarks at a news conference on Tuesday in which he said he was not focused on the cause of the devastating storm and that questions about the role of climate change were “esoteric.” The scientists said that understanding how climate change helped exacerbate Sandy’s destructive force is crucial to limiting damage from future storms.
