RUSH: There’s one more court case. It’s not a Supreme Court case, but it’s big. A judge, a federal judge yesterday “tossed out two … lawsuits by San Francisco and Oakland that sought to hold some of the world’s largest oil companies liable for climate change.” I remember when these cases were filed and I remember mocking it and laughing about it. Here you had San Francisco and Oakland, sanctuary cities, actually filing suit against five or six gigantic, big oil companies because of their culpability and responsibility for climate change.
Now, the judge did not say that this is “stupid on a stick” in actual words, but he did in his ruling. And it’s also important to point out the judge here did not dispute the left-wing definition of climate change. Apparently, the judge thinks that it’s actually happening as these wackos on the left say. But his ruling is 16 pages. It “touched on such scientific matters as the ice age and early observations of carbon dioxide, U.S. District Judge William Alsup acknowledged the problem of a warming planet but said it is just too big for the courts to solve.”
The courts can’t fix this, which is a wise and intelligent thing to say. Just like the courts are not gonna solve the immigration crisis. We’ve already got laws on the books that are being disobeyed. “The [two] cities are trying to get five oil and gas giants, including Bay Area-based Chevron, to help cover the costs of dealing with sea-level rise, like picking up the tab for seawalls. However, Alsup, noting that Congress and the White House, not the judiciary, are responsible for addressing the fallout from fossil fuels, granted the industry’s request to dismiss the suits.”
He just threw them out, which is a… I mean, the left is suffering defeat after defeat. You may think no big deal; it was gonna be a loss. They’re not used to losing this stuff. They’re not used to losing it with their judges. Everything is going against them right now, in their minds. The important thing to note, in their minds, everything’s going against them.
