SF judge orders first-ever hearing on climate change science

A federal judge in San Francisco has ordered parties in a landmark global warming lawsuit to hold what could be the first-ever U.S. court hearing on the science of climate change.

The proceeding, scheduled for March 21 by U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup, will feature lawyers for Exxon, BP, Chevron and other oil companies pitted against those for San Francisco and Oakland — California cities that have accused fossil fuel interests of covering up their role in contributing to global warming.

“This will be the closest that we have seen to a trial on climate science in the United States, to date,” said Michael Burger, a lawyer who heads the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University.

Experts on both sides say Alsup’s call for a climate change “tutorial” is unlike anything they’ve heard of before. …

  1. Governments can’t control mother nature and its own pace. Laws don’t make a difference unless your real intention, which some in power have, that is to eliminate half the population of the world so that the survivors, who have been pre-selected, will enjoy a peaceful utopia.

    • “…a peaceful utopia.”
      Not unless they eliminate every last non-Progressive in the world, for as we’ve been told forever: One Man Makes a Revolution!

    The oil companies and all business made and continue to make a major strategic mistake by admitting the #GlobalWarming #hoax. Once they do, they and everyone else who uses or produces energy and/or enjoys freedom [other than the green crony capitalists and the Dems who want more government control] inevitably lose.

    The moral of the story is never accept false Dem narratives, even if doing so is easier in the short run.

    Winston Churchill observed:

    –“Some people regard private enterprise as a predatory tiger to be shot. Others look on it as a cow they can milk. Not enough people see it as a healthy horse, pulling a sturdy wagon.”

    Today’s Dem Party views business as the “predatory tiger” or the “cow.”

    THE #GLOBALWARMING #HOAX IN THREE CHARTS:

    Melting Arctic ice has long been one of the #GlobalWarmers’ main talking points.

    –“The entire north polar ice cap will be gone in 5 years.” Al Gore predicted on December 13, 2008. [Has Al Gore ever given an accurate #GlobalWarming prediction? You would think the odds favor him occasionally getting a prediction right.]

    Here is the #GlobalWarming #Hoax in three charts:

    **Arctic temperatures for the last 10,000 years measured from ice core samples in Greenland.

    **Arctic sea ice in the Chukchi Sea for the last 10,000 years.

    **Arctic ice north of Iceland for the last 3000 years.

    If the #GlobalWarmers’ theory of human caused #GlobalWarming was true, why do they have to lie about it?
