Kennedy’s Retirement Could Make It Harder To Fight ‘Climate Change’ (scam) Or Something

I would think it would be pretty easy for Warmists to fight ‘climate change’: simply give up their own use of fossil fuels and make their lives carbon neutral. Use super expensive coolants for their freezers and fridges, hand wash clothes, two minute showers, grow their own food, etc.

Justice Kennedy’s Replacement Could Make It Harder to Fight Climate Change

The retirement of Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy could allow the nation’s highest court to change its mind on whether the Environmental Protection Agency has to fight climate change.

As a crucial swing vote, the Reagan appointee joined liberals in a landmark 5-4 decision in 2007 that the EPA is required to address climate change if its own scientists found that it posed a risk to public health. Two years later the agency made exactly that determination, issuing a scientific document known as the endangerment finding.

“We’re not going to get another Kennedy who’s going to play that moderating role,” says Deborah Sivas, a professor of environmental law at Stanford University. “Since it’s a matter of statutory interpretation instead of bedrock constitutional principles I could see folks try to set up a new challenge.”

The decision in Massachusetts v. EPA underpinned a series of Obama-era climate regulations that aimed at boosting vehicle fuel economy standards, cutting carbon dioxide emissions form power plants and reducing methane emissions in the oil and gas sector.

It’s doubtful that the issue will be revisited anytime soon, if ever. But, you know how Warmists love requiring Other People to be forced to practice the cultish beliefs of the Cult of Climastrology. It is interesting to see the concern from the CoC over potentially not being able to force their beliefs on others.
