The whole Chicken Little act fell apart with Climategate in 2009. The media just never reported it. But the National Review has a nice report on it this weekend on how the courts have caught up with the public on global warming.
From National Review:
The Supreme Court’s stay of the EPA’s sweeping Clean Power Plan (CPP) is one of several developments undermining the efforts of President Obama and his fellow climate zealots. The Obama administration expected the CPP to seal the U.N.’s first universal climate agreement, but now that the president’s grand plan has been put on hold until final judicial review on the merits, its fate will likely not be known until late 2017 at the earliest. Furthermore, the prospects for upholding the power plan are not that strong. As a legal condition of imposing the stay, the Supreme Court had to conclude that the EPA’s plan would likely be overruled in the Court’s final review.
Last December in Paris the climate agreement was declared a fait accompli, with representatives of around 190 countries expected to sign it on Earth Day (April 22) at the U.N.’s headquarters in New York. The Paris deal does not “enter into force” until at least 55 countries that together account for 55 percent of man-made greenhouse gases ink the document. But if President Obama’s grand plan to reduce CO2 remains in legal limbo for two more years, why would other countries go ahead and submit their economic future to the terms of the U.N. agreement?Good question.
Global warmalism is going the way of global coolingalism.
Stop and think about this. The liberal John Roberts court originally ordered the EPA to either disprove carbon dioxide is turning our planet into Hell On Earth or regulate it. The EPA did Now the court is saying, wait a minute.
