The Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies advocates for inaction on global warming: “Global warming is nothing more than an educated guess by many of the same scientists who are still arguing about what happened to the dinosaurs. Perhaps we should think carefully before putting blind faith in people who cannot explain the simple disappearance of tens of millions of creatures, many of which were the size of locomotives.”

In a Federalist Society Newsletter from 2000, they claim: “The science is not settled (as claimed by Vice President Gore), that it is not “compelling” (as claimed by President Clinton), and that there is certainly no scientific consensus favoring global warming. If anything, the largest number of scientists, some 17,000, signed a petition against the Kyoto Protocol in 1998.”

The Federalist Society is a member of the State Policy Network.
