Kids’ climate change lawsuit tossed

Empower Wisconsin | Jan. 23, 2020

Want to know exactly how insane the climate change movement has become?

Not even the loopy Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco will take up an extreme environmental lawsuit filed on behalf of children.

The 21 young plaintiffs accuse the U.S. government of destroying their future by supporting a fossil-fuel based economy. You know, the kind of economy that brought them every convenience and helped make the United States the envy of the world.

A Ninth Circuit panel of judges tossed out the lawsuit — begrudgingly.

“Despite the lack of a constitutional right to uniform weather, the plaintiffs sought a court-monitored plan to mitigate climate change,” Ballotpedia reports.  “Although lacking any legal merit, the case was allowed to proceed by U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken—until, that is, a majority of the Ninth Circuit ‘reluctantly’ concluded that ‘the plaintiffs’ case must be made to the political branches or to the electorate at large, the latter of which can change the composition of the political branches through the ballot box.”

“That the other branches may have abdicated their responsibility to remediate the problem does not confer on Article III courts, no matter how well-intentioned, the ability to step into their shoes,” the opinion in the 2-1 decision states.

The kids, driven by a panic narrative that is fed by adult children who have yet to grow up, first sued in 2015, during the Obama administration. They claim their constitutional rights to “life, liberty, property and public trust resources” are being violated. They also sought a pause in all fossil-fuel-projects while their lawsuit was being heard.

The lawsuit was led and funded by Our Children’s Trust, a liberal climate change alarmist group based in Oregon.

And, to no one’s surprise, the three judges on the Appeals Court panel were appointed by President Barack Obama.
