Governor Christie said he believes that climate change is taking place and that people play some role. However, he called the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, or REGGI, a failure and said New Jersey is exiting from the program. Under the program ten northeast states auction off their carbon dioxide emissions that exceed a certain cap. The money raised is used to pay for developing clean energy programs.
