Judge Rules Pruitt🦖 Must Provide Evidence for his Climate Denial

Remember last March, when Pruittís scandal du jour wasnít about trying to get himself a used mattress or his wife a fast food gig or wasting money on fancy pens or any of the other 10 scandals this month? Remember when all we were concerned about was how he said climate change wasnít caused by human activity?

As it turns out, a federal judge hasnít let herself be distracted by the increasingly outrageous revelations against Pruitt from that original concern. On Friday, US District Court judge Beryl Howell ordered the EPA to produce the evidence upon which Pruitt based his comments.

This could be a tall order, because, of course, there is no good evidence to suggest humans arenít driving climate change. At least none solid enough to hold up in court.

But tobacco lobbyist-turned-fossil-fuel-defender-turned-shadow-EPA-admin Steve Milloy isnít worried. He suggested on Twitter that Heartlandís climate report is all the proof Pruitt needs for the judge. 

Unfortunately for Milloy, a quick Google on that report brings up all sorts of reasons why itís not going to pass any sort of courtroom scrutiny. Despite being named after the IPCC, Heartlands Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC) report clearly lacks the credibility of its namesake. And it doesnít take a law degree and years on the judicial bench to smell the BS: the school teachers who received the report in a mass spamming last year quickly saw through the sham.

As well they should. Heartland has issued NIPCC reports for years now and the content of each report relies on already-debunked denier talking points. For example, RealClimate debunked the 2008 report by pointing to pre-existing rebuttals. The 2009 and 2011 reports were overrun with cherrypicks, the 2013 report was zombie science, 2014ís was a joke, and 2016 took a fruitless run at the consensus.

And letís not forget that deniers have already tried, and failed, to prove their denial in court. Perhaps, then, the courtroom will house the Red Team attack on climate science Pruitt has long tried to get going. But instead of being used to attack regulations, Pruitt will be playing defense.

Looks like Pruitt might get a chance to go to the mattresses after all.

I saw that about the judge. I have my doubt as to whether he'll be held to any kind of high standard, but it'll be interesting to see.

Maybe he'll quote 2nd Peter Chapter 3 verse 10 and say global warming is God's Will.

Which it might be.


Pruitt 🦀 is a pseudo-Christian, not a Christian. You have difficulties differentiating between the two. I get that. I get that you are, perhaps  ;), just being sarcastic because I pulled on your Kratuhammer praise "chain". 

You sir, know quiite well that Judeo-Christian Scripture is not a valid proof of just about anything, except, perhaps some mens rea , in a court of law, never mind  Climate Change Denial.

Pruitt 👹 is a Kochroach!


That said, it is true that Lawyer Pruitt is an old hand at legaleze duplicity, routine perjury, double talk and evasive bullshit. So, he can probably avoid being forced to admit, for at least a year, that Climate Change is REAL and caused by Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the burning of fossil fuels.
 
I get that too. Have a nice day.
Hope deferred maketh the heart sick: but when the desire cometh, it is a tree of life. Pr. 13:12
