A climate science-denial group named the New Zealand Climate Education Trust has been ordered by a New Zealand court to pay $80,000 in legal costs to the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA).

In its closing opinion on the Trust’s lawsuit against NIWA, the court found that NIWA acted in accordance with internationally recognized scientific standards and that the conclusions of NIWA’s research held up with conclusions derived from other research methods. Point by point, the court’s lengthy opinion finds that, as far as can be established in a courtroom setting,  the Trust’s argument does not stand up to scientific scrutiny.

Hopefully the fight to halt climate change is over before it’s too late.
