Governments And Companies Sued 1,300 Times Over Hotcoldwetdry Since 1990 Or Something

Amazingly, most of the people bringing the ‘climate change’ suits refuse to practice what they want to force others to

Governments and firms in 28 countries sued over climate crisis – report

Climate action lawsuits against governments and corporations have spread across 28 countries, according to a new analysis.

The study reveals that more than 1,300 legal actions concerning climate change have been brought since 1990.

While the US – with 1,023 cases – remains the leader in climate litigation, other countries are increasingly seeing individuals, charities and states take action.

Joana Setzer, co-author of the report by the Grantham Institute and the London School of Economics, said: “Holding government and businesses to account for failing to combat climate change has become a global phenomenon.

“People and environmental groups are forcing governments and companies into court for failing to act on climate change, and not just in the US. The number of countries in which people are taking climate change court action is likely to continue to rise.”

In the two and a half years since Donald Trump became US president, lawsuits have sought to prevent his attempts to undo environmental regulations. An analysis of 154 cases in the report shows that no such reversal of a climate regulation brought before the courts has yet survived a legal challenge.

Countries where legal cases have been taken include Australia, where 94 cases were launched, the UK (53), Brazil (five), Spain (13), New Zealand (17) and Germany (five).

Of course, most of these suits fail, and those that don’t result in minor adjustments that just barely comply, and amount to nothing in the end. But, hey, if they can’t actually convince other people in their cause, they’ll attempt to force it.

    1300! That’s a lot of lawsuits!!

    Donald Trump has only been involved in 3500 lawsuits.

      When you’re rich, you’re a target.

      Care to tell us how many he won? How many were settled out of court?

      “Donald Trump has only been involved in 3500 lawsuits.”

      Regardless of how you or anyone else would know how many law suits Trump has been involved in the fact you felt the need to even mention it only proves your psychopathy. Once again Elwood, regardless the topic being discussed the mini Donald Trump living in your head compels you to bring him into the topic. Trump really screwed up your brain.

        Trump really screwed up America, but revealed your “brain”.

        • formwiz says:

          You really think that’s witty, don’t you?

          Too bad troll humor is about the best you can muster.

          And, yes, it’s so loused up that under Trump, more Americans work than ever before, incomes are going up, and Wall Street is doing even better without crutches. The Dow is up 41% since we elected Donald Trump president. And his deregulation alone is raising household income $3100 a year.

          A record 157,005,000 people were employed in June, the most since February and the 19th record of Trump’s presidency, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported on Friday.

          And the economy added a strong 224,000 jobs in June, well above the estimate of 160,000.

          Unemployment is 3.7%, and that’s by counting everybody, not those laid off for 8 years in the Sambo era.

        • Kye says:

          “Trump really screwed up America”? You are free to leave any time you want. WE think Trump is saving America from you commies. We’ll just have to disagree as you explain how 3.7% UE is screwing up America. We could go through the entire litany of Trump’s accomplishments for America in the last months but that’s not necessary since we all know that you know and that’s what makes us smile when you say dumb shit like that.

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            Cons usually want Americans who think differently from them to leave. Clearly, given enough power they would make it happen.

          • Professor Hale says:

            Actually, we don’t need to speculate on what America would look like if “Cons” had the power. They had the power for our entire history until the election of Bill Clinton. During all that time, no government used that power to expel people who thought differently. We didn’t even expel communists during the Cold war. The fact that communists are so numerous today is a testament to the fact that “Cons” don’t persecute anyone when they are in power. Even the “literally Hitler” Donald Trump hasn’t expelled any political enemies or locked them up. (also, he hasn’t bombed anyone in three years, much better than Obama’s and Hillary’s record). Similarly, when America was dominated by Christians in every public office in the land, we didn’t burn witches, hang atheists or expel Jews. One might make the argument that a nation lead by conservative Christian people is the most benign form of government for everyone to live in, even for people who hate Conservatives and Christians.

    Amazing that companies can be sued over a hoax.

    • formwiz says:

      Only if the judge is a Lefty.

      They’re all crooked, it would seem.

    • Professor Hale says:

      In court, you don’t have to prove you are right. You only have to convince 12 people that they should stick it to the system/corporation/patriarchy by taking away their money. And those people are , on average, below average intelligence. Lawyers intentionally select gullible people for important trials when their case has no logical support in the law.
