Climate Crackpots Lose in Court Again
The Heartland Institute cites General Counsel Sam Kazman on Kelsey Cascadia Rose Juliana et al. v. The United States of America et al:
In Juliana, the court rightly concluded it was beyond the judiciary’s constitutional authority to impose a nationwide climate policy, said Sam Kazman, general counsel with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, in a statement.
“The court correctly understood that a lawsuit aimed at imposing a national plan to eliminate fossil fuel emissions and reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide would push the court far beyond its constitutional powers,” Kazman said. “It would require the court to substitute its judgment for that of Congress and the [presidential] administration on an unprecedented scale.”
