Liberal rag Gizmodo: ‘Scalia’s death may have saved the planet’

Justice_Antonin_Scalia_Speaks_with_Staff_at_the_U.S._Mission_in_Geneva_(2)As we reported earlier, liberals are celebrating the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.  The left-wing site Gizmodo went even further, declaring that his death “may have saved the planet.”

On Monday, Maddie Stone wrote:

And on February 9, along with four other Supreme Court justices, Scalia voted to put a stay on Obama’s Clean Power Plan, a signature set of environmental rules for combatting carbon pollution and transitioning the US to a clean energy economy. With his death, the odds of that plan surviving—along with the Paris climate agreement and, inevitably, humanity—just got a lot better.

Say what?  Does Stone seriously believe that humanity’s survival hinged on the life of one man?  It sure sounds like it.

She also noted:

Since Obama introduced the Clean Power Plan last summer, over two dozen states have sued the federal government, calling the plan a “power grab,” and “the most far-reaching and burdensome rule the EPA has ever forced onto the states.” Last week, Scalia and four other justices put a freeze on enforcement of the new rules until litigation moves forward—an unprecedented move that, as Harvard law professor Jody Freeman told the New York Times “indicates a high degree of initial judicial skepticism from five justices on the court.”

Of course, now that Scalia is dead, President Obama has a chance to radically alter the Court with yet another far-left nominee.  Of course, the Senate has to approve that nominee, but as we all know, Senate Republicans aren’t exactly known for staying in the fight.  They’ll whine at first, but in the end, they’ll do what they always do and cave.

She concluded with this:  “In his death, Scalia has scored a win for the planet. But the battle for Earth is far from over.”

Back in Feb 2011, I first noted that liberalism, at its core, is an ideology of rage and hate.  Sadly, liberals prove that assertion correct on just about any given day.
