San Fran Federal Judge Kneecaps Economic Growth

1 04 2007

By hook or by crook. Legislation and litigation.

You can’t sue the sun or the Earth for getting warmer, so who do you go after? The US, of course.

In allowing the lawsuit to proceed, U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White on Friday cast doubt on the administration’s assertion that disagreements remain about the connection between human activity and climate change. He also cited increased attention on the issue in the media, including Al Gore’s documentary, ”An Inconvenient Truth.”

The lawsuit names two agencies — the Overseas Private Investment Corp. and the Export-Import Bank of the United States — that insure billions of dollars of U.S. investors’ money for foreign projects, including power plants that emit greenhouse gases.

It’s officially time to become extremely alarmed about the consequences of global warming. This is just the slowly-melting tip of the judicial iceberg.
