Biden’s DOJ Messing Up A “Historic” Climate Crisis (scam) Lawsuit Or Something

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is very upsetting for Jacobin Magazine. Yes, the pure, ultra-Socialist magazine. They tell you what they want. They tell you they are Socialists. Even Biden’s actions are good enough for them

Biden Is Aiming to Destroy a Historic Climate Change Lawsuit

Any day now, a federal circuit court is expected to deliver a ruling that would allow a historic climate change lawsuit to proceed to trial.

If and when the case moves forward, however, it faces a major obstacle: President Joe Biden’s Justice Department.

The lawsuit, Juliana v. United States, was brought by twenty-one young plaintiffs in 2015 and seeks to establish a federal, constitutional right to a livable planet. If the case is successful, any federal policies that enable more fossil fuel development could be challenged as unconstitutional.

But the Obama and Trump administrations both vehemently fought the lawsuit, and now those close to the case say that Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) has indicated it will also use every procedural tool at its disposal to prevent the lawsuit from ever getting a trial.

“I have asked [them] very directly, if we win this motion, and we can move forward with the case, do you intend to go to trial?” Julia Olson, the lead plaintiff’s lawyer, told us. “Their response has always been something along the lines of, ‘It is our position that the court doesn’t have jurisdiction and that this case should never go to trial.’”

Well, the court really doesn’t have jurisdiction, hence why Obama’s DOJ worked to block it.

Juliana v. United States was ambitious from the start. The plaintiffs are asking a federal court system, stacked with right-wing judges backed by the fossil fuel industry, to enshrine a constitutional right to a livable climate. But the plaintiffs point to what they’ve pulled off thus far as evidence it’s achievable.

The courts have no standing to determine this. Period.

For example, Oregon district court judge Ann Aiken wrote in a procedural ruling on the case in 2016, “I have no doubt that the right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life is fundamental to a free and ordered society.” That was the first time a federal US judge declared that such a constitutional right existed.

And, the loopy climate cult judge is 100% wrong. But, it does beg the question “what are the conditions of this climate system?” What is the proper temperature? Weather systems? And how do we think we can control this when we’ve seen multiple cool periods during the Holocene, and multiple warm periods, many of which were warmer than today?

If it makes it to the Supreme Court, it will be shot down.
