You read that right. The Christie administration issued a press release today touting Earth Day. That’s like the Westboro Baptist Church celebrating tolerance.
The press release talks about the “focus on Governor Christie’s commitment to … environmental protections from future storms” without mentioning how that same administration has unilaterally waived nearly all environmental regulations. They talk about how they “administer aggressive environmental and conservation efforts.” If by “aggressive”, they mean “ready or likely to attack” (Google Dictionary), then they are right. The governor was “aggressive” in his attack on the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative when he unilaterally took the state out of this job-creating, pollution-reducing plan.
Any espousing of how the Christie administration is eco-friendly is disingenuous at best. But on Earth Day, it’s a downright insult to the citizens’ intelligence.
