Federal Judge Throws Out California Warmist Lawsuits Against Fossil Fuels Companies

I still think it would have been more fun for Exxon and the rest to refuse to sell their products in the cities and counties which filed the lawsuits, especially to the city government and elected leaders

(AP)  A U.S. judge who held a hearing about climate change that received widespread attention ruled Monday that Congress and the president were best suited to address the contribution of fossil fuels to global warming, throwing out lawsuits that sought to hold big oil companies liable for the Earth’s changing environment.

Noting that the world has also benefited significantly from oil and other fossil fuel, Judge William Alsup said questions about how to balance the “worldwide positives of the energy” against its role in global warming “demand the expertise of our environmental agencies, our diplomats, our Executive, and at least the Senate.”

“The problem deserves a solution on a more vast scale than can be supplied by a district judge or jury in a public nuisance case,” he said.

Alsup’s ruling came in lawsuits brought by San Francisco and neighboring Oakland that accused Chevron, Exxon Mobil, ConocoPhillips, BP and Royal Dutch Shell of long knowing that fossil fuels posed serious risks to the environment, but still promoting them as environmentally responsible.

Funny, for all the caterwauling from those cities and counties, they still refuse to give up their own use of fossil fuels.

On the flip side, a trial would have been fun, because the Cult of Climastrology would have had a tough time proving their case, especially when they themselves are still using fossil fuels. Perhaps Judge Alsup was just protecting the CoC from itself.
