The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals just allowed a children organization to sue Trump’s administration over global warming. Yes, you got that right: according to those clowns at the 9th circus, children now have a constitutional right to a stable climate, whatever that means.
The 9th Circuit enforced a previous federal judge’s decision at the U.S. District Court in Oregon from 2016, which said that the environmental group Our Children’s Trust have standing to sue the federal government over regulations (or the lack there of) to phase out hydrocarbons also known as fossil fuels. If you’re an adept of Al Gore’s church, fossil fuels are destroying the planet. Meanwhile, he’s the first carbon tax billionaire, but let that go.
The environmental activist group is composed of 21 children , and oil and gas groups together with Trump’s administration asked judges in 2017 to reverse the Oregon federal judge’s decision, in order to keep intact the balance of powers, but let me quote: “end this clearly improper attempt to have the judiciary decide important questions of energy and environmental policy”.
However, the 9th Circuit disagreed. Our Children’s Trust chief counsel Julia Olson claims that constitutional rights to life, liberty and property are being trampled by the federal government’s refusal to enact policies aimed at stopping what the far left describes as an impending catastrophic global warming. The whole case is based on the public trust doctrine, i.e. the concept that certain resources should be protected for the sake of the future generations, while burning gas, coal and natural gas violate the public trust doctrine. The environmental group says that their lawsuit is aimed at forcing the federal government “to ensure that atmospheric CO2 is no more concentrated than 350 [parts per million] by 2100 … to stabilize the climate system”.
So, let me get this straight: the same pro-abortion liberals are using children to file suit against this current administration because they want to save the lives of children? If these liberals really cared about the lives of children, they should also file suit against Planned Parenthood.
Regardless of what far left activist judges are telling you, here are a few truths:
There is no right to a stable climate.
There is no right to assume the climate of the 1880’s was optimal.
There is no right to assume what the future climate will be like.
There is no right to believe that US action on climate change will have any effect on a global phenomenon.
You would think that there is no one associated with the 9th circuit court with any science education at all; I mean, there is no definition of “stable climate”; stable climate can mean different things to each and every person who sees the words; you cannot define it, quantify it, and you can not, for the Love of God Almighty, demand it. Liberalism is a mental disorder.
This is a mockery of both science and the judicial process, but hey, to the liberal fascists of the infamous 9th circuit court, facts aren’t important. Also, discovery in this case should be a blast. The plaintiffs will have to come up with scientific evidence to support their claim. Since no scientific evidence exists, they will have to rely on the disproved CAGW (Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming/climate change) garbage put out by Michael Mann, Al Gore and the rest of the global warming crowd.
The good news is that a public trial would allow the evidence presented by the warmists to be challenged. The AGW crowd avoids public debates because when their methods are exposed, they lose. They prefer to simply shut down any opposition. A public trial could be a good educational experience of ‘some’ of the children.
That’s really just an extension of what all government does to grow its power and remain in charge:
1. Create a crisis
2. Promote it as Apocalypse unless SOMETHING is done
3. The SOMETHING can only be done by government, but it will cost you! Big time.
