21ST CENTURY PROBLEMS: A federal judge in D.C. hit ‘reply all,’ and now there’s a formal question about his decorum. I think reminding a federal judge who’s yammering about climate change that “the jurisdiction assigned to you does not include saving the planet” is entirely appropriate, and the bullshit response is just more evidence that “civility” codes are mostly about silencing people.

And why is Chief Justice John Roberts approving judicial training on climate change? That really isn’t within their jurisdiction. And if doubting climate change brings your impartiality into doubt, doesn’t promoting it do the same thing?
