Chicago Sues Fossil Fuels Companies Or Something

Chicago has decided to join the Leftist parade of cities, counties, and states who are suing fossil fuels companies, but, aren’t giving up their own use of fossil fuels. And, really, wouldn’t be able to survive without them

Chicago sues oil and gas companies for their role in contributing to climate change

The city of Chicago is suing five oil and gas companies and a trade group that represents them over their role in contributing to climate change and its effects, arguing that the companies have misled the public about how the use of fossil fuels affects city residents’ well-being.

The suit, filed Tuesday in Cook County Circuit Court, accuses BP, Chevron, Shell, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil and the American Petroleum Institute of mounting a “climate deception campaign” about burning fossil fuels to protect their profits.

Chicago is the latest in a slew of government bodies taking legal action against fossil fuel distributors over how climate change has affected cities and states. Cities in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maryland, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, South Carolina and Puerto Rico have taken similar actions since 2017, according to a release from the Center for Climate Integrity.

Chicago, represented by its own attorneys and lawyers from Chicago firm DiCello Levitt and San Francisco firm Sher Edling, is not seeking a specific sum from the defendants. However, it is demanding they reimburse the city on the costs incurred from climate change-related events such as infrastructure and property damage.

Again, I say those companies should refuse to sell their products to the city of Chicago. Let’s see how well that works. How will they pick up garbage? Run police cars and fire trucks? Buses? How about cleaning up the snow? How do O’Hare and Midway international operate? How about all the fossil fueled ships bringing goods? Sadly, the companies never do this. I’ve never understood why. If someone is suing you, you do not continue working with them. Heck, the city should voluntarily stop using fossil fuels if they are so concerned.

Seriously, it’s not fossil fuels damaging Chicago. This is just a shakedown.

    Agree with stopping sales. Simple statement of needing to curtail liability if the court imposes fines.
