    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A U.S. federal judge tossed out a lawsuit by California's attorney general on Monday seeking hundreds of millions of dollars from six automakers for damaging the state with climate-changing greenhouse gases.
    Martin Jenkins, a federal judge in the Northern District of California, said the issue of global warming should be decided in the political rather than legal arena.
    "The Court finds that injecting itself into the global warming thicket at this juncture would require an initial policy determination of the type reserved for the political branches of government," Jenkins wrote in approving the automakers' motion to dismiss the case.

    Finally a judge in California that has some constitutional sense.

    Isn't it great that we are trashing God's creation?

    Isn't it great that people can get from point A to point B as economically and freely as they can?

    These United States are basically pristine compared to how the environment was trashed in Eastern Europe/Soviet Union when communism ruled those areas.
