This Supreme Court ruling could upend
everything about climate change lawsuits

Original Article

Posted By: Moritz55, 3/29/2023 10:53:32 AM

Federal courts of appeals cannot agree whether climate change lawsuits are governed by state or federal law. Some federal courts have also concluded these cases should proceed in state court, an outcome Judge David Stras – a respected jurist on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 8th Circuit – just last week called "confounding," even if correct. It’s time for the Supreme Court to intervene. For over a century, the Supreme Court has held that lawsuits over air (and water) pollution that crosses state lines must be decided under federal law. This means overreaching states and cities cannot impose their environmental agendas on their neighbors

These lawsuits should primarily be governed by true science and honesty. Which they are not. The political agenda of Climatistas has nothing to do with clean water, air and well managed land resources. it is a Trojan horse for the Left to get what the voters would not give them at the ballot box. Which category of courts is least of the problems.

The start of the movement of all governing decisions and actions began with FDR and Social Security where everyone was promised and believed that for just a few pennies per pay check you could have a secure retirement. It was sharply increased with LBJ's Great Society programs where for just a few pennies per pay check you could enjoy almost 'free' health care. Creating the GI Bill of Rights began the idea that government's role included 'educating' the citizens and therefore we needed a Department of Education. Throw in a department to oversee all air, land, and water really grabs a lot of power. All these actions greatly increase the number of 'government' employees needed to write rules, oversee, and enforce the actions. The politicians know that by promising and giving salaries, benefits, perks, and other advantages over the taxpaying serfs they can be more easily reelected and stuff their own pockets. Somebody or something needs to destroy the swamp so that governing can return to near proximity to those affected. The closer the government the better the government.

That is a double edged sword, states imposing regulations that effect neighboring states as opposed to the federal government affecting all states. It is a states rights verses federal government rights issue. It is like the current wacked out woke administration stopping oil pipelines and drilling.

People like John Kerry should be arrested and charged for perpetuating, under the RICO statutes, a very expensive hoax, namely global warming aka 'climate change.' In a rational world that would have already happened.

Follow the money and it will lead to elites who believe they should rule the world. This movement is all about intimidation, greed, and an insatiable power to control. However, it would have never gotten off the ground without the world’s willingness to believe the absurd. Even the smartest among us dared not oppose them. It’s very difficult to stand when the majority of the scientific community quickly fold under peer pressure or more likely submit to protect their funding. The movement is vicious, very well funded and brooks no dissent. Plus, they can count on the media and entertainment industry to follow their lead like lapdogs. Academia abandoned all scientific peer review because they were cowards. It was easier to go along to get along and more lucrative. So, here we are destroying our economies for a pipe dream created by the same people who are desperate to rule over the rest of us. This is their strategy. They love to drum up fear because they know if you can make a people fear, you can control them and that is the ultimate goal. Their goal is a cowed population easily led who are living by rules that the climate elites create but refuse to follow. It is mental slavery and will quickly devolve into the real thing because the elites believe we are less than and that gives them the right to rule over us, and they will. Slavery never dies, the evil among us just tweak it and repackage it. We will be slaves to the globalist agenda. Their leaders tell us we will own nothing and be happy. If this becomes reality, freedom and God given rights will be abolished and we will become wards of the state. The climate will not improve but their power will exponentially explode.

But more dangerous are those wielding said ram: obama, POSoros, Klo Schwamm, the red shields and the like. They are thieves not just of money...but of Liberty, Peace and civilized society.

It doesn't matter because Climate Change is caused by the rotation of the Earth, the Earth's orbit around the sun and the periodic wobble of the Earth.

The last few weeks, the world had been writing off the United States as either crazy or irrelevant as it watches America cannibalize itself. Friends tremble at our sudden decline. Enemies rejoice. Neutrals make the necessary adjustments to join the ascendant non-American side. The symptoms of our decline abroad appear everywhere. The more Joe Biden brags about the crippling oil sanctions on Russia, friends like India and allies like Japan ignore them. And why not, when Biden has no idea how long the war in Ukraine will last, or how much wherewithal the United States can, should, or will give Kyiv, or how its on-to-Red-Square blank check will finally end?

Two former U.S. ambassadors are sounding the alarm on the increasing number of green energy projects nationwide being developed with the involvement of Chinese companies. Former U.S. Ambassadors Peter Hoekstra and Joseph Cella said Chinese companies, which are subject to strict Chinese laws, have made a concerted effort to take advantage of U.S. green energy goals. The companies, they said, are exploiting American tax incentives to build facilities and projects in the U.S., bolstering Chinese industry and ensuring continued U.S. reliance on technology from China.

On Good Friday, I chanced across a photograph of the lower Manhattan skyline at night from Good Friday in April 1956. Three skyscrapers, dominating the space, feature certain windows illuminated to form gigantic crosses to commemorate that most solemn of Christian holidays. The year 1956 was not that long ago. But how much has changed in those 60-odd years! Can you imagine such a public display of Christian affirmation in New York today? Nor can I. That was then. Now things are different. I thought about that disjunction between then and now when reading through Washington’s Farewell Address this weekend.

Nobel Laureate Albert Camus once said, “Insurrection is certainly not the sum total of human experience but … it is our historic reality.” Those words came to mind this week when Tennessee’s House of Representatives expelled two members accused of disrupting legislative proceedings in what some called an “insurrection” or a “mutiny.” The scene on the floor of the Tennessee House perfectly captured our “age of rage.” Protesters filled the capitol building to protest the failure to pass gun-control legislation.

The numbers don’t lie: Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg’s case against Trump is a massive outlier, not the “bread and butter” move the crime-lover claimed it was. Turns out, his office almost never prosecutes cases on charges like the ones he’s mounted against the ex-prez — i.e., first-degree falsifying business records with the “intent to commit another crime or to aid or conceal the commission thereof.” State crime data crunched by the Times-Union show that Bragg’s office has gone after people for this as a top charge only eight times in the past few years. Statewide, there have been fewer than 300 such cases since 2019.
