Recently the attorneys general from eight states launched a joint lawsuit against the federal government to curb greenhouse gases and stem so-called global warming.  But David Almasi of the National Center for Public Policy Research believes this lawsuit is a serious abridgement of Constitutional authority.  Comments Almasi: “Attorneys general are elected to enforce laws, not to create them. The Separation of Powers concept was enshrined in our governmental bodies by our Founding Fathers for a reason: When too much power is congregated in one source, dictatorship is inevitable. If these state politicians wish to set national environmental policies they should lobby Congress or run for Congress themselves.”
