Governor Christie said he has been so busy helping New Jersey recover from superstorm Sandy that he hasn’t had time to consider “the esoteric question” of whether climate change may have fueled the devastating storm.

“It’s not a main concern for me,” Christie said when asked about climate change and Sandy during a news conference Tuesday.

Andrew Bolt: World not warming to climate change | adelaidenow
Not surprisingly, the rest of the world seems to have lost Australia's crusading zeal to "stop" a warming that for now seems to have stopped itself. In Australia, we're forced to pay a $23/tonne carbon tax. In Europe, carbon allowances have crashed to below $6. In New Zealand the price has plummeted to just $2.

None of this is to say the world did not warm last century and will not resume warming at some stage. The truth is the world over the past 16 years has not warmed as most climate models and warmist scientists predicted. The increasing disasters we were told to expect have not happened.
