Climate Change (Literally) on Trial

Via Nature’s “Great Beyond”, this story from the Los Angeles Times:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce...wants to put the science of climate change on trial... The chamber is pushing for the Environmental Protection Agency to hold a public hearing -- with witnesses, cross-examinations and a judge to rule on whether humans are causing global warming... [Its] goal...is to guard against potential emissions regulations by undermining the scientific consensus on climate change.

Not “show us in a forum we’re familiar with that this is really happening”, which I would understand, but “give us a chance to undermine the scientific consensus using the tricks that we know best”. Don’t they ever wonder whether their children will forgive them?
