US judge blocks oil, gas drilling over climate change

Federal Judge Rudolph Contreras blocked drilling in Wyoming in 500 sq.miles saying the government must consider climate change impacts in leasing  public land for energy exploration. The order marks the latest in  court rulings over the past decade that have faulted the U.S. for inadequate consideration of greenhouse gas emissions when approving uses of federal land.

After court rulings over climate change, BLM reconsidered fossil fuel effects then re-affirmed approvals. That could happen again in this case with  studies done before drilling proceeds, said Harry Weiss, a Philadelphia environmental lawyer whose clients include oil and gas companies.

“This decision should not be interpreted as a ban on leasing activities,” Weiss said. “The court is not ruling on whether it’s thumbs up or thumbs down. The court is simply grading how the administration did analyzing the issues.”

Apparently the absurd fear of future climate danger has infected the judiciary now. What delusional times we're living in.

Judges makes decisions based on the merits of the legal points presented to them, and not any "absurd fears that have infected them." Judges are the least delusional folks in our society, rest assured. In a way, they are the ones who keep things sane.
