A court handed Donald Trump a victory that left global warming alarmists fuming
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is notoriously leftwing-activist.
Democrats constantly use the Ninth Circuit to bash President Trump.
But they just handed Trump a victory that no one saw coming.
A group of children backed by big so-called “global warming” donors are suing the government.
They claim in Juliana v. U.S. that the government is violating their “right to life” for failing to enact harsh restrictions on CO2 emissions like a Carbon Tax.
Now, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the Trump administration to decrease the likelihood that the so-called global warming lawsuit will head to trial.
The Daily Caller reports:
The Trump administration’s battle against a global warming lawsuit brought by 21 youths will continue into 2019 after a federal court handed the government a big win over the holiday season.
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals sided with the Department of Justice (DOJ) in a Dec. 26 ruling largely missed by major media outlets. The court granted DOJ’s petition for interlocutory appeal that decreases the chances of the climate lawsuit going to trial anytime soon.
The three-judge Ninth Circuit panel is the very same one that in March 2018 ruled against Trump administration petitions for a writ of mandamus, which allows a higher court to overrule a lower court before a case is decided.
Environmentalists handling the case on behalf of youth activists immediately filed a petition asking the District Court of Oregon to restart trial proceedings in light of the appeals court ruling.
With Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ so-called “Green New Deal,” global warming activists are trying to hit the Trump administration from all sides.
As we reported, Cortez has no idea what her plan would cost.
She has even admitted it’s more of a set of ideals than an actual plan.
