MSNBC station on television in a hotel room

To react to the Supreme Court’s ruling in West Virginia v. EPA that the executive branch can’t regulate carbon emissions at power plants without Congressional authorization, Katy Tur Reports guest host Yasmin Vossoughian welcomed radical climate scientist Michael Mann to accuse the “reactionary, activist” Court of taking away the right to a livable planet.

Vossoughian introduced Mann and West Virginia by lamenting, “U.S. carbon emissions are on pace to spike again this year and the Supreme Court just made it much harder for the U.S. government to do anything about. In one of the most important environmental decisions in years, the justices preemptively curbed any regulations the Biden administration might consider to limit carbon emissions at power plants.”

Mann began by decrying this “awful day” and then turned from climate scientist to legal analyst, “Look, you know, what the Supreme Court has done here, what this reactionary, activist Supreme Court has done is to remove yet another fundamental right that we have as citizens. They’ve removed the fundamental right to privacy, they’ve removed a fundamental right to safety from gun violence, and they’ve removed a fundamental right to a livable planet.”

Boo hoo. msnbc can’t handle a decision not to their liking I take it. How do they get around NYC without gasmasks on their faces? They must be nervous wrecks by now, the traffic is wacky there and the emissions must be endangering those who are brave enough to go outside to get into whatever conveyance they use to move from one street to another. Poor people.

Many fools in the US have bought into this ‘climate’ tripe lock-stock-and-barrel. They don’t realize that it all is a Marxist ploy to hamstring our industry and its production, not to mention to fleece our populace. Why? We are a conscientious nation that safeguards the environment. But the real climate offenders are nations like India and China that scoff at environmental safeguards. They seek only to outproduce and to surpass the US with OUR money. A plague upon the blind and self-serving Democrat politicians who allow this to happen!
