Federal Court Will Hold Hearing on ‘Climate Change’ Science

“Finally!” yelled everyone who’s ever been labeled a ‘climate change denier’.

After decades of pseudo-science propagated by the global warming left, a federal judge is finally calling for both sides to show their cards.

District Court Judge William Alsup in San Francisco has ordered scientists for various oil and gas companies to square up against ‘scientists’ for San Francisco and Oakland in a presentation on climate science and why or why not to be convinced of ‘climate change’ aka global warming.

The case concerns cities suing oil companies for their contribution to pollution.

One such case has already been thrown out of court.

But this one may finally draw the line in the sand between science and propaganda.

We’ll keep you posted.

A federal judge in San Francisco has ordered parties in a landmark global warming lawsuit to hold what could be the first-ever U.S. court hearing on the science of climate change.

The proceeding, scheduled for March 21 by U.S. District Court Judge William Alsup, will feature lawyers for Exxon, BP, Chevron and other oil companies pitted against those for San Francisco and Oakland — California cities that have accused fossil fuel interests of covering up their role in contributing to global warming.

“This will be the closest that we have seen to a trial on climate science in the United States, to date,” said Michael Burger, a lawyer who heads the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University.

Experts on both sides say Alsup’s call for a climate change “tutorial” is unlike anything they’ve heard of before.
“I don’t know of any judge who has asked for a tutorial like this,” said Steven E. Koonin, a physicist and former Energy Department undersecretary known for his contrarian views on global warming research. “I think it is a great idea. Anybody having to make a decision about climate science needs to understand the full spectrum of what we know and what we don’t know.”
