A Lawsuit The Right Can Get Behind

May 6th, 2011at 08:01am Posted by Eli

This sounds right up the conservative alley:

Advocates of stringent curbs on greenhouse gas emissions sued the federal government on Wednesday, arguing that key agencies had failed in their duty to protect the earth’s atmosphere as a public trust to be guarded for future generations.

Most of the individual plaintiffs in the suit, filed in United States District Court in San Francisco, are teenagers, a decision apparently made to underscore the intergenerational nature of the public trust that the earth’s atmosphere represents….

(…)

But in some ways the suit parallels a current case, brought by several states against the five largest utilities in the country, that frames greenhouse gas emissions as a public nuisance, legal experts noted.

After all, they’re always looking out for the interests of the unborn, protecting them from abortions, and from inheriting a crushing debt burden.  Although, to be fair, they didn’t care about that last one until about five seconds after a Democrat became President.

Also, state’s rights!
