A federal appeals court has thrown out a high-profile case brought by 21 kids and young adults in a bid to block the federal government from encouraging the use of fossil fuels.
“Juliana vs. the United States,” filed in 2015, alleges that the U.S. government knew for decades that burning fossil fuels would lead to damaging climate change but failed to do enough to stop it. Two judges out of a three-judge panel ruled that the issues raised in the case are best left to Congress.
“There is much to recommend the adoption of a comprehensive scheme to decrease fossil fuel emissions and combat climate change, both as a policy matter in general and a matter of national survival in particular,” Judge Andrew D. Hurwitz wrote in the court opinion. “But it is beyond the power of an Article III court to order, design, supervise, or implement the plaintiffs’ requested remedial plan. As the opinions of their experts make plain, any effective plan would necessarily require a host of complex policy decisions entrusted, for better or worse, to the wisdom and discretion of the executive and legislative branches.”
One theory about Nancy Pelosi’s actions yesterday is that she has gone insane. Removing that possibility for the time being, might any astute SDA readers have another plausible theory about why she has turned impeachment into a circus?
So much for “somber” and “solemn.”
House Dems are so excited about impeachment that they’re passing out commemorative pens and grinning for photos at a celebration ceremony.
There is simply no credible case to be made that Meghan Markle’s departure from Britain has anything to do with ‘racism.’ On the contrary, both the Royal Family and the British public have been at pains to make this brash newcomer welcome, despite her weapons-grade sense of entitlement and her apparent unwillingness to do more than the barest minimum to fit in either with Royal protocol or the duties that come with the privilege of her newly acquired wealth and her rank by marriage.
Meghan Markle’s departure from the UK has nothing to do with racism and everything to do with her insistence on acting like a spoilt, unaccountable Hollywood princess in a country that takes a dim view of spoilt, unaccountable Hollywood princesses.
Ironically what Meghan misses is the responsibility free deference and adulation granted to US celebrates who mouth liberal platitudes whilst living lives of total narcissistic self indulgence. Duties and responsibilities are for other people. https://t.co/7rjtjFAIzp
