At this blogging platform I have been focused on highlighting climate change and broader environmental issues facing my homeland Nepal. But the United States is my adopted land never far from my thoughts. I am a Jersey girl now and what the state's governor remarked about climate change has really saddened me. I believe his comments has brought shame to the state too.
New Jersey governor Chris Christie denies climate change. Here is what Gawker reports,Chris Christie's ignorant dismissal of climate change, I believe, comes at a point when the in the United States it is a cool thing to be this rusty, earthy commoner who rejects all things "science". Christie has Sarah Palin and the Tea Party gang for back-up. And while America elects these dim-witted Republicans, the world is fed up and now more than ever is looking for elsewhere for climate change leadership. Europe looks like a much better climate change leader that the United States. Sad turn of fate after historic elections of 2008!
