“The specter of more frequent ‘100-year floods'”

David Ettinger has written this interesting post at the At the Lectern blog. It begins:

Not long after California voters ousted Chief Justice Rose Bird and Associate Justices Joseph Grodin and Cruz Reynoso from the state Supreme Court, new Chief Justice Malcolm Lucas assured that the election “was analogous to a 100-year flood — a very unusual circumstance, which I do not anticipate happening again.”  That was 28 years ago.  So far, so good.  But, as climate change science has taught us since then, “100-year floods” are now more frequent than every 100 years.

David notes an attack from the left on California’s Supreme Court Justices for their removal (at least temporarily) of an advisory voter measure regarding overturning Citizens United through a constitutional amendment.
