Quote – Chris Christie (R), governor of New Jersey.

This program is not effective in reducing greenhouse gases and is unlikely to be in the future. The whole system is not working as it was intended to work. It’s a failure.

"Gov. Christie announces N.J. pulling out of regional environmental initiative”, by Christopher Baxter. NewJersey.com. That’s not even remotely true—in fact Christie himself just used RGGI funds to pay for offshore clean energy projects. Which is exactly what the program is meant to accomplish. http://www.nj.com/politics/index.ssf/2011/05/gov_christie_to_announce_nj...
