Carbon Suit

I linked to a study below which called into question the primary cause of global warming. Undeterred, 8 states and the city of New York have decided to sue 5 power companies to force them to curtail emissions of carbon dioxide. Elliot Spitzer is, once again, Leading the Charge in This High Profile Case™. Interestingly, in their suit they are gunning for the utility companies as common law "public nuisances".

This cracks me up, because it reads as though Spitzer et al. were "undeterred" by your earlier post. "Despite my earlier critical post, the government stubbornly persists in its wrongheaded policies . . ."

I know that's not what you meant. But that's the reading I'm favoring, because it cracks me up.
