    Excellent news.

    But the government does have “duty of care” to see that no Australian is living in poverty or less than ideal conditions owing to ruinous renewable energy costs.

  2. Buccaneer says:

    This will just provide more impetus for the activist class to continue stacking the judiciary. Anyone that thinks this or any other unanimous overturning of a leftist shibboleth by jurists actually applying the law correctly will provide cause for reflection or change of tack is sadly mistaken.

    The fact that the media can’t seem find their way to report on how shameless this action was both in the deliberate attempt to use the law to force government policy in a contested space and in the use of children to do so says a great deal about how that profession has also been captured by the activist set.

  3. Buccaneer says:

    If the government had a duty of care for anything, Dan Andrews would be in jail.

  4. Lee says:

    This utter rot, so-called “duty of care” argument could be used by any activist or plaintiff to oppose just about anything he or she is not in favour of.

  5. Graham says:

    It seems that Justice Mordy Bromberg’s frolic of his own owed a lot to the minimalist way in which the Minister defended the case. As is made crystal clear in the Chief Justice’s reasons for judgment the Minister rolled over and made no real challenge to the climate change guff being argued. She enabled Mordy.

    The CJ said: “by and large, the nature of the risks and the dangers from global warning, including the possible catastrophe that may engulf the world and humanity was not in dispute”

    That is so typical of the Morrison government. No balls.

  6. Fat Tony says:

    The CJ said: “by and large, the nature of the risks and the dangers from global warning, including the possible catastrophe that may engulf the world and humanity was not in dispute”

    Thank God all our governments have State of Emergency legislation in place to handle this new possible catastrophe.

  7. Bruce of Newcastle says:

    Mordy seems to get overturned more than any other justice. Weird that.

    Having demonstrated he can read Andrew Bolt’s inner thoughts, and having decided that the wukkas and Toyota shouldn’t be allowed to negotiate for the wukkas to keep their jerbs, he obviously has a perfect window into the gestalt of the nation.

  8. Old School Conservative says:

    It will be easy to find an investigative journalist who will identify these teenagers’ financial supporters, political strategists and legal advisors.
    Waiting……waiting……

  9. NoFixedAddress says:

    When do deplorables get to rate any Australian judge?

    The ‘legal system’ is a closed shop and if your not in it you don’t count.

  10. Entropy says:

    Yes, a recent complaint I made (fraud) which was successful in court was overturned on appeal not because the defendant was innocent, in fact he said in his statement the judge said it was obvious the dude was up to no good, but quashed the conviction because he didn’t like the way the coppers write the charges.

    The judge of course has ALP background.

    One of them is an archetypal silly old nun, Sister Brigid Arthur. Being a catholic is supposed to give you some kind of inoculation against modern stupidity. Looks like she got a placebo.

  12. Morsie says:

    I bet taxpayers are funding this litigation through some government office.

  13. Lee says:

    Jo Nova makes some excellent points:

    The whole case was silly beyond words. If the Environment Minister has a Duty of Care to stop a coal mine for fear of losses to these teens in future years, then surely the Treasurer also has a Duty of Care not to wreck the economy and put those same teens in debt on a frivolous pagan quest to stop floods, storms and droughts? Likewise, the Minister for Energy has a Duty of Care to make sure these students don’t grow up to live in a third world banana republic that can’t power factories to provide jobs or keep their quality of life as high as it was for their parents. Where does it end? With a dictator running a command economy, and gulags for the dissidents.
