President Donald Trump's energy-independence agenda may be on the verge of collapse. Unable to impose their ideology at the ballot box or through the American people's elected representatives, “climate change” activists have turned to the courts and the bureaucracy — and with much better results. Just this week, a radical Obama-appointed federal judge temporarily blocked oil exploration across some 300,000 acres of land in Wyoming. The reason: The Trump administration did not properly consider the hypothetical impacts of CO2 emissions on “climate” when granting permission to explore for energy there. Sensible voices have expressed hope that the bizarre ruling will be overturned. But critics of the ruling said the Trump administration must take urgent action or risk further rulings like this.
