    The religious nature of Climate Zealots, clearly stated in the article:

    “Such lawsuits will likely do even less to remedy the effects of climate change than similar suits did for lung cancer or opioid addiction. Yet on closer analysis, the climate change lawsuits may be the worst solution to mitigating climate change — except for all the others.”

    Ummm . . . no. Wrong again. Killing fossil fuels will dramatically raise prices for energy on the middle class and the poor, hurt the economy badly, and will NOT stop Climate Change. China and India and the rest of the developing world will keep on growing their coal and oil production no matter what American lawyers get paid big bucks to do.

    The solution – if it is so urgent as we are told – is right there. Clean nuclear energy, and more and more liberals who are TRULY concerned about climate change are getting on board. (Not to mention the planting of millions of trees, as agreed to by climate scientists.)

    All the other people advocating dramatically higher energy costs are just religious zealots and are not really serious at all about the problem. People will NOT support raising energy costs and taxes on poor and middle class people and that includes people on the left.

      Craig- the left never sees the end results of their policies until it smacks them in the face, and then they still wont admit it was a bad idea. Example- Men setting records and winning championships in womens sports. SMH

            LOL I’m afraid to ask exactly how we’ve turned a blind eye to cities we primarily have control of, because your answer is likely just as insane as everything else you post on here. I can name places too: Arkansas, most of Texas, Mississippi, South Carolina, Kentucky, try places I wouldn’t be caught dead stepping foot in that our economy could gladly give up since combined they still don’t reach the impact of CA and NY. You jokers on the right like to forget that all you produce is teenage pregnancy and meth addiction in the heartland, we’ll keep the culture, thanks.

            Turned a blind eye by failing OVER DECADES to solve the lingering, festering, stinking, problems in their cities that affect ALL residents.

            “insane”, “You jokers”, etc. violate IJ’s terms of service and is being reported to an attorney for compilation of numerous such violations.

            Is this like your party turned a blind eye to the AIDs crisis? Or your party turned a blind eye to climate change even being real? Or your party currently turning a blind eye to man-made climate change? Since now they can’t pretend climate change is a thing at all, and even though they were wrong about climate change being a real threat, now your party is TOTALLY right about there being no man-made impact. Sounds like a crock of garbage you keep trying to get us to take, no thanks.
