The Exxon saga rumbles on. Via RK on fb I find Exxon Wins Latest Legal Round in Climate Fight With Mass. AG from Inside Climate News. And the motto is: those that live by the courts will die by the courts. Or, in this case, a federal judge in Texas says Massachusetts AG Maura Healey must answer questions about her climate investigation to Exxon lawyers. There is astonishment from the “good guys” over the very idea that their actions could possibly be subject to scrutiny: the order is extraordinary because it allows the target of her investigation to investigate her agency and so on. Well, tough. If you choose to fight on the science, that’s what you’ll be judged on. But if you choose to fight in the courts, you’re subject to whatever they happen to decide. I’ve been critical of running to the courts before; this seems a perfect example of what goes wrong.
