it will be a dark day when #45 and the GOP come to the pinnacle of their judicial appointments and court packing. Many of these are lifetime appointments and the country will be subject to the often incompetent usually rightwing justices.

In the midst of this destruction we are given a rare glimpse of sanity and good news. Unfortunately these rare occurrences will become even rarer.

A judge blocked oil and gas drilling on almost 500 square miles (1,295 sq. kilometers) in Wyoming and said the federal government must consider the cumulative climate change impact of leasing broad swaths of U.S. public land for oil and gas exploration.

U.S. District Judge Rudolph Contreras in Washington, appeared to go a step further than other judges in his order issued late Tuesday.

Previous rulings focused on individual lease sales or permits. But Contreras said that when the U.S. Bureau of Land Management auctions public lands for oil and gas leasing, officials must consider emissions from past, present and foreseeable future oil and gas leases nationwide.
