Chamber of Hypocrites, er, Commerce, Threatens Lawsuit

Ahhh, more proof that the corporate whores who work at the Chamber of Commerce don’t actually buy into the “lawsuits are evil” rhetoric:

The nation's largest business group is asking U.S. EPA to hold a public debate on climate change science -- or face litigation -- as the agency prepares to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act.

This is no surprise to me.  Businesses routinely take advantage of our robust civil justice system.  But they and their corporate front groups spend millions of dollars to prevent injured citizens from using that same robust civil justice system.

Remember the Chamber’s eagerness to turn to the courts the next time they argue that we need to restrict the ability of others to do the same.
