“I mean, when is the cataclysm?”

The New York Times reports on the oral arguments before the Supreme Court in the Mass v. EPA global warming case. Justice Kennedy will seemingly be the deciding vote. At this point I was just humored by some of the courts conservative justices.

First, Scalia, in explaining the Court's standing requirements: “You have to show the harm is imminent,” ... “I mean, when is the cataclysm?”

And better yet, was Chief Justice Roberts point that the plaintiff's argument “strikes me as sort of spitting out conjecture on conjecture.”
