NJ.com: Gov Christie fiddles while RGGI money burns (Editorial)
It’s official: The governor is so averse to a green economy, he burns money. Someone has finally slapped a price tag on Gov. Christie’s environmental indifference. According to an analysis [by Acadia Center], his decision to pull out of the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative in 2011 has already cost New Jersey $114 million in revenue from cap-and-trade auctions, and staying out of the carbon reduction venture will cost the state another $387 million over the next six years.
