Should we be campaigning for judges
harder than for legislators?
With federal and state lawmakers frozen solid for over a decade, the judiciary again seems to be making the only public-policy progress toward climate-proofing our society.
This week comes another example. A federal court ruled that EPA regulations can take into account worldwide, not just national, damage from emissions. Seems that, given how the atmosphere works, America First is a flawed protection strategy. (Come to think of it, maybe that’s true for the world trade system and international security too.)
