New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who recently nabbed a key newspaper endorsement in New Hampshire, appeared on MSNBC's Morning Joe, where he talked about his views on climate change and the level to which he regards the issue as a crisis.

"The climate's always changing, and we cannot say that our activity doesn't contribute to change in the climate," Christie said. "What I'm saying is: it's not a crisis. The climate's been changing forever and it will always change, and man will always contribute to it."

"I don't buy the fact that it's a crisis... I don't see that there's any evidence that there's a crisis," he added.

When pressed on what scientists agree with him that climate change is not a crisis, Christie responded, "listen, there are a lot of scientists who agree with me that climate change is real, occurs and that men and women contribute to it... I didn't say I was relying on any scientists... I don't see evidence that it's a crisis."
