Thank goodness that President Trump has appointed judges to change the complexion of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The result of the changes can be seen in their latest decision:
The U.S. Court of Appeals decided in a split decision the court could not decide on matters of climate policy. The president and Congress are the decision-makers on climate policy. The teenagers’ attorneys would now have to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to allow the trial to continue where it was filed in Oregon.
Twenty-one young climate activists were involved in Juliana v. United States. The group wanted a court order requiring the feds to implement a national plan to phase out carbon emissions.
The Daily Caller reports that the case was originally filed in 2015 and has survived attempts to deny it. With President Trump’s changes to the court, the case was finally dismissed.
A statement from the court said:
“The panel reluctantly concluded that the plaintiffs’ case must be made to the political branches or to the electorate at large. The political branches might conclude…however inappropriately in the plaintiffs’ view…that economic or defense considerations called for a continuation of the very programs challenged in this suit.”
A group called ‘Our Children’s Trust’ is involved in this youth-centered mission to push the climate agenda. They’re based in Eugene, Oregon. The Sunshine Movement is also heavily involved in getting children on board with their mission.
