NYU Creates Academy Helping AGs Crusade Against Trump’s Reg Rollback

AG Schneiderman

New York University is using a $6 million grant from former Mayor Michael Bloomberg to create a center helping state attorneys general (AGs) target the Trump administration’s climate policies.

The grant will go toward the State Energy and Environmental Impact Center, which will escalate attacks against President Donald Trump’s decision to eliminate several of his predecessor’s climate regulations. Bloomberg’s charity, Bloomberg Philanthropies, has shoveled millions of dollars into various environmental concerns targeting coal production.

“Every day there’s something that goes on that endangers the health and safety of Americans,” Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh said in a statement Wednesday night. “Attorneys general don’t begin to have the resources to meet these challenges.”

NYU’s new center will provide AGs with legal services and the money required to pay down court costs on renewable energy, climate, and environmental issues. It will also sponsor 10 attorneys on fellowships who will work inside different attorneys general offices.

The center’s services are open to all AGs, but Democrats such as NY AG Eric Schneiderman, California’s Xavier Becerra, and Frosh, will likely be the lone recipients because they have indicated a willingness to drown the president in lawsuits over his climate policies.

Schneiderman, for instance, has spearheaded more than half a dozen lawsuits defending the Obama-era rule limiting greenhouse gas emissions from existing power plants. He has also engaged in a year-long investigation into ExxonMobil’s climate record, which managed to rope in Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

“There may be no better example of how the Trump administration is quickly and quietly trying to deregulate, defund, and destabilize our basic regulatory infrastructure than environmental policy,” Schneiderman said in a statement Wednesday.

    So many of Obama’s mandates were illegal over reaches that they probably would have been struck down even if Clinton was president. There is no way law suits can keep these in place.

    I have said it before on this site and will repeat it. A very effective tactic against these suits is counter suits. The lawyers, sponsoring organizations, and when possible members of the organizations should be defendants of the counter suits. This would stop this movement cold. I have successfully used this tactic in my personal affairs.

    Altho NYU is a taxpayer funded institution,
    Do not expect the great governor of NY
    Andy Koo-Ahh-Moe
    to step in and prevent this obvious
    Undue Influence.
    Koo-Ahh-Moe not only agrees with it, but is too busy trying to become
    The 2020 Demorat presidential candidate.
