Michigan's finest legal mind scores an important victory for addressing climate change

by: Eric B.

Tue Apr 29, 2014 at 15:00:00 PM EDT


Bill Schuette's office did what it has specialized in -- wasting taxpayer dollars pursuing a partisan agenda -- rather than what it's supposed to do -- represent the legal interests of the people of Michigan -- and signed on to the doomed lawsuit to strip the EPA of its Supreme Court-granted ability to regulate carbon dioxide as a pollutant. The case wound up at the Supreme Court and an unsurprising thing happened: Michigan's finest legal mind lost.

This is now twice that climate deniers have lost before the Supreme Court.

What we can expect over that the News' political blog -- or at least could have expected had the crackpot conspiracy mongering Henry Payne not been reassigned -- was a few head explosions about an out-of-control EPA arrogating power, and a president who refuses to work with Congress on this ... despite years of Congress refusing to do anything except ask phony English lords to testify.

But, as we all know, it was a really cold winter and spring has been cool, so although other parts of the world are alternately on fire or drowning after extreme precipitation events, we can rest assured that climate change is a hoax.

$11,000 (0.00 / 0)
That's how much CMS Energy, owners of Consumers Energy, gave Schuette last year in campaign contributions.  

Wonder if they will ask for a refund or if there are other lawsuits they want him to file at our expense.
