Robert Samuelson on AGs' warming suit

He doesn't think much of it: "Any self-respecting judge will dismiss this suit --and do more. Because the only point is political self-promotion, the judge ought to require the attorneys general to pay court costs and defendants' costs from their own pockets." ("Clearing the Air", Newsweek, Aug. 11 (via Andrew Stuttaford, NRO "The Corner"). For more on the suit, see Jul. 21, Jul. 27, and Aug. 3; CommonsBlog, Jul. 27 and Aug. 14; Mark Clayton, "In hot pursuit of polluters", Christian Science Monitor, Aug. 19).
