New York City, Which Survives On Fossil Fuels, Sues Fossil Fuels Companies

So, just wondering when the City Of New York plans on giving up it’s own use of fossil fuels to run their operations. Police, fire, trash collection, street cleaning, schools, etc and so on. How about Mayor Bill de Blasio and his use of fossil fueled private jets?

New York City sues Exxon, BP, Shell in state court over climate change

New York City on Thursday sued three major oil companies and the top industry trade group in state court, arguing that the companies are misrepresenting themselves by selling fuels as “cleaner” and advertising themselves as leaders in fighting climate change.

The lawsuit comes after a federal appeals court this month rejected the city’s effort to hold five major oil companies liable to help pay the costs of harm caused by global warming.

The lawsuit said Exxon Mobil Corp, BP Plc, Royal Dutch Shell and industry group the American Petroleum Institute “have systematically and intentionally misled consumers” through fuel sales at branded stations as “cleaner” and “emissions-reducing” while not disclosing climate impacts.

“These lawsuits have no merit and do nothing to advance meaningful efforts that address climate change,” said Exxon spokesman Casey Norton.

NYC just won’t give up on trying shakedown lawsuits. They were blown out in the first one, so, why not try it a second time. Seriously, the three companies should refuse to sell their product to the city. Let’s see how they operate without it. The city itself wouldn’t operate without fossil fuels. All the cars, planes, trucks, and ships that bring people, products, and goods to and from the city. All the fossil fuels required to keep the city operational.

“The defendants in our lawsuit have spent millions to persuade consumers that they present a clean, green choice,” said New York City Corporation Counsel James Johnson. “But they don’t.”

No one thinks gasoline is a green option, at least from a real environmental point of view. And it should be interesting watching NYC attempt to argue their point in a court, which the companies will be happy to argue in. They don’t seem like they have any intention to pony up money for NYC. If someone was suing you, would you provide them your goods and services? And, if the people of NYC like these types of suits, why are they not giving up their own use of fossil fuels?

    In a speech this morning, President Biden supported nuclear power construction.

    As leftists whine and cry about the impact of dark money, pacs and billionaires buying elections we find:

    A report published by the Center for Responsive Politics shows that “dark money” topped $1 billion during the recent election cycle. That includes about $660 million in contributions from anonymous donors to outside groups – with about $514 million going toward liberal groups, compared to the roughly $200 million that boosted Republicans.

    The GOP is becoming the party of grass roots as the democrats crawl in bed with corporations.

    Behind it all, the filthy maggot tribe swill who yearn for the “good old days” of their Messiahs – Lenin and Stalin – who they helped murder FIFTY MILLION across Russia and Eastern Europe. But those surely do not count, since they were mostly only Goyim. Remember that Bernie’s campaign claimed the gulags “paid a living wage.” The filthy Jews know that the Right People will get what they want WHEN they want it!!!

      Wooha, there cowboy. If you think this is some sort of racist or anti Semitic blog you are mistaken. The only racists we have are the White haters on the left like the Red commenter and the only religious bigots are the Christian haters, also the Red commenter and his fascist/communist supporters. And as atheists the only religion they like is mooslem because the mooslems hate Christians, Jews and Americans almost as much as the Red commenter, et al. Which makes them Allies in the war against God and Freedom.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Of course this is a racist, anti-American hate site, unless one believes that the claim that whites are supreme over all non-whites is not racist (Hint: It is racist).

        This site and most commenters are also christian reactionaries desiring a christian state. They hate non-christians. Mostly they lie about everything.

          You make bold and wide generalities about your own personal sins.

          Why do you hate White people?
          Why do you hate Christians?
          Why do you hate America?

          Why do you project all your hatred, envy, and filth on every other commenter rather than be accountable to yourself?

          Why won’t you answer these questions? What are you afraid of?

          You come from a slave state, was your family slavers? You’re obviously a democrat and they are the party of slaves, Jim Crow, lynching, the KKK, separate but equal, poll taxes, gun permits and general hatred of blacks. Is that why you now hate Whites? As atonement?

          Nobody at this site has EVER stated they wanted “a Christian state”, EVER. So you lie to cover up your own hate of Christians. Why?

          You are a pig, a fascist and no amount of atoning will save your evil soul. I spit on you and your anti American, anti Christian, anti White hatred.

        I merely try to tell the truth, which the tribe will not tolerate. Is Bernie not Jewish? There is video of that claim from his campaign. Bernie never denied nor repudiated it. Then you have Soros and Zucker and Zuckerberg and Schiff and Nadler and Schumer.

        • Galway Boy says:

          Everyone you mentioned in your post is an obnoxious A’hole. The world is full of them. The tribe you refer to is liberal A’holes, not Jews. Among their members are Biden, Obama, Dorsey, Gates, both Cuomos and countless other gentiles.

          You can be a Jew without being an A’hole and vice versa. A’holes are. not limited by race or creed. For instance, if you impugn an entire creed based on the action of a few A’holes, you are an A’hole.
