No, it hasn’t, you idiot bint

The US supreme court has declared war on the Earth’s future
Kate Aronoff
In a major environmental case, the court has made clear that it would rather represent the interests of corporations and the super-rich than the needs and desires of the vast majority of Americans – or people on Earth

What the Supreme Court actually said is that we can’t leave the bureaucracy to make up stuff on the big issues. If there is a big issue, a big policy, then there has to be a clear directive and or mandate from the legislature.

That’s also all the court said. You can have whatever climate policies you like, you’ve just got to pass a law about them first. Which, in a democracy, is probably the way it should be, right?

  1. So now they’ll have incompetent, lying, vested interest politicians making the wrong decisions rather than incompetent, lying vested interest bureaucrats making the wrong decisions. This is better for the peeps how, exactly?

  2. So many people saying “this is that”. So few explaining what “this ” actually is.

  3. Adolfff: politicians have a raised profile at every election, unlike the faceless, un sackable permanent administrative class infiltrated with WEF/CommoN Purpose drones. If elections are legit, they can be voted out, if not they are the obvious targets for lynching. Please Mr Ecks, your hour is almost come!

  4. I think that we might see some lynchings in the Netherlands soon, judging by how angry the farmers are there.

  5. Bloke in North Dorset

    Typical of the left.

    Congress refused to pass a climate bill so Obama went over their heads and told the EPA to do it by fiat and they were all delirious. It says something that the EPA then had to go back to congress to get more money to hire the layers, engineers and other technocrats needed to come up with a policy, a clear indication that climate change was never in their remit.

    Trump comes in and starts reversing Obama’s orders and the left go ballistic and demand that SCOTUS stops him.

    They’ve now got their man in office again and they want a return to government by fiat.

  6. Ljh, as I mentioned on another thread a while ago, whilst you’re right we can indeed vote them out, we’ll just elect another bunch of incompetent, lying, vested interest politicians……etc

  7. On a point of order. Bint is derived from the Arabic for girl or daughter. Arabs wisely keep their bints in the kitchen making the sammidges & tea, not writing Guardian columns. You value her far too highly.

  8. @Ottokring: yes, that was a surprise- only to be expected in France, but the phlegmatic Dutch going full on.. ?

    Interesting times ahead…

  9. Addolff: we are rapidly approaching the point where even the most obedient realise that politicians don’t represent them at which point…

  10. The identities of the people annoyed by this decision strongly suggest that the decision is right.

  11. Asiaseen: at which point we realise the generalised rotten nature not only of the political class but of every institution, quango, not for profit, thinktank, regulatory board… the political class’s last chance was Cameron’s bonfire of the quangos which never happened, the trajectory remained that set by Blair until now we are at the Fourth Turning. Natostan starting WW3 or a Peasants Revolt?

  12. It’s been an ongoing problem over the past several decades, that hundreds of federal agencies have grown in power and influence given to their unelected leaders. Not through legislation but through directives and, many times, through mere public statements in agency emails and blog entries.

    Randi Weingarten has much more power over public education than any senator, congressman, or god forbid actual parents. Randi, of course, doesn’t even have any children of her own, but still deems herself entitled to micromanaging the lives of yours.

    Same type of deal when it comes to energy policies, land management, veterans affairs, healthcare, social security, housing, Native American affairs…you name it.

    There will be people who have to go *on record* as supporting something. Its amazing how reticent people get to stick their hands in and try to lever massive societal changes when they have to put their signature on the paperwork.

    That alone is a massive benefit.
