So Sad: Kids (astroturfed) Climate Suit Tossed In Federal Court

All that time and money for nothing. But, there’s an idea for the kids at the end

A federal appeals court on Friday tossed a climate change lawsuit brought by a group of children who sought a court order to force the U.S. government to phase out fossil fuel emissions.

A divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit said that while the lawsuit raised critical issues concerning the government’s promotion of fossil fuels, they were beyond the court’s power to resolve.

“Reluctantly, we conclude that such relief is beyond our constitutional power,” Judge Andrew Hurwitz wrote for the majority. “Rather, the plaintiffs’ impressive case for redress must be presented to the political branches of government.”

Exactly. This is a function of the Legislative Branch, not the courts. Of course, we see all the polls that show that while people might care about Hotcoldwetdry in theory, they aren’t so interested in paying for it themselves.

Of course, they always want That Guy to pay for it. Someone got me in a convo in the Real World (I usually avoid political convos) and went down the typical road of Warmists, namely that Big Companies should pay, and that someone should pass a law that the Big Companies should not be allowed to pass on the increased costs to consumers. Warmists never want to take responsibility of their own behavior.
