The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the largest nonprofit business group in the world, is seeking to have the facts of climate change put on trial -- to the delight of some of its members and the chagrin of others. The chamber petitioned the Environmental Protection Agency seeking proof of the agency's finding that climate change poses a public threat. In papers filed in federal court just two weeks ago, the chamber says "that a proceeding on the record is necessary to narrow the areas of scientific uncertainty, to permit a credible weighing of the scientific evidence, and to enable submitters of proof to demonstrate the falsity of some key erroneous claims."
