Michigan AG Plans To Sue Fossil Fuels Companies

Perhaps the AG can explain who Michigan can survive without fossil fuels. All those automobiles produced. All the shipping across the Great Lakes. How will they clear all the snow?

Nessel plans to sue oil and gas companies over Michigan’s changing climate

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced Thursday her intention to sue the fossil fuel industry for its role in changing Michigan’s climate and threatening the state’s environment, infrastructure, health and economy.

The oil and gas industry profited while knowingly selling products that cause climate change, Nessel’s office said in a document disclosing the coming lawsuits. The industry also deceived the public about climate change, Nessel alleged, leaving the state with the expenses of adapting to and recovering from the effects of warming.

“I don’t know that there’s a bigger issue facing the state of Michigan than climate change,” Nessel said in an interview with The Detroit News. “We are talking about billions and billions of dollars in damages and we’re already starting to see that on a day to day basis. We know this is only going to get worse.”

Well, crime is pretty big in many Michigan cities. How about fixing the water issues in Flint? Or dealing with the Islamic extremists in places like Dearborn?

“Big oil caused these problems and they ought to pay the expenses related to these damages,” Nessel told The News.

They wouldn’t have succeeded if people didn’t want to use them. A lot of people in Michigan depend on fossil fuels, especially heating gas, for those cold winters. They need them for all their boats. For all the tourists. Will Michigan be shutting down the airports? If fossil fuels are so bad, why did she allow so many to travel to Detroit for the NFL draft? Why did she travel to Detroit?

Anyhow, unfortunately the gas and oil companies won’t do things like refuse to sell their products to the state government, or get photos and video of the AG traveling around in fossil fueled vehicles and planes.

    The solution to this insanity is simple. The oil companies simply refuse to sell fuel of any kind to such agencies or entities. Problem solved. The state government would become pretty impotent when they can’t heat their buildings or drive their vehicles.

      You are dealing with left wing Democrats here if you refuse to sell fuel to any of the entities they will send the military in take over your facilities and kill your people. How many scifi movies you have to see to know what the hell stands in our future? And that notwithstanding hasn’t what they’ve been doing to Trump taught us anything?

      Basically our government is already out of control one more push and I’d hate to see what happens.

        Fine… let’s strip the mask off. Let them try the violence solution and find out which side is actually better at it. Sooner or later that’s what it’s going to come down to. Why wait.

    The companies should stop selling to all blue states!! And any of those progressive nations who “believe” in global warming – nations like Great Britain, Germany, France, Canada, Israel, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Poland, Brazil, Sweden, Belgium, Finland, Estonia, The Vatican, Lithuania, Norway, etc…

      Elwood when you make replies like that you make our point for us. We were kicking around ideas I’ve had to straighten out left wing states that are treating their people bid and treating their American companies bad.

      You immediately have to dial it up to 11 and start bitching about selling the blue states all blue states. It’s not what we were talking about. Then you gotta throw in all progressive nations that believe in global warming. There’s nothing progressive about believing in witchcraft that is not progressive. The same people who thought all about the nonsense with COVID are the ones that believe about this climate nonsense. Do you really believe you can electrify the world? Do you really believe you can replace every other form of energy including nuclear with electricity? Are you really that stupid? As long as we let these idiots get away with this crap they’re leading us down the primrose path to destruction. If you don’t know that then you shouldn’t be part of this discussion.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        You were kicking around the idea that oil and gas companies should stop sales to states that sue them. The fact is that most blue states and Western nations have declared war on fossil fuels. So absolutely, stop selling fossil fuels!!

        One doesn’t have to convert all energy production to renewables to reduce emissions. The US and Europe have both reduced emissions and have the strongest economies in the world.

        Your drugs may be messing with your brain but what do you believe nuclear power plants produce if not electricity? Are you thinking a gram of uranium will run your gas car for a month?

        LG: Are you really that stupid?

        LG: If you don’t know that then you shouldn’t be part of this discussion.

    … nations that believe in global warming.

    L.G.B. No One BELIEVES in global warming. It is a tactic to transfer wealth. Nothing more. Those nations that pretend to “believe” in it are simply run by people who intend to profit from that transfer of wealth, most of which will come from the USA. All of the AGs suing fossil fuel companies are doing it for the same reason. Not one of them cares about a hypothetical small rise in global temperature at some point in the distant future. They care a LOT about living like royalty now after they gut the energy company fish for their own benefit.

    To the extent that the temperatures are rising or falling around the world, nothing that is being proposed will have any effect on it, nor is it intended to. Human beings cannot control the weather. None of the proposals are making any claims to control the weather, they are only making claims to move your money from your pocket into theirs. This is obvious and unarguable.

      Commenter: No One BELIEVES in global warming. It is a tactic to transfer wealth. Nothing more.

      Science is not a belief system. Either one understand the evidence or not. Those that refuse to understand generally have a stake in the status quo.

      “It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” -Upton Sinclair

      State capitalism has evolved (devolved?) to facilitate the transfer of wealth.

      Jared and Ivanka made up to $640 MILLION while working for the US Administration 2017-2021!!

    You guys are counting on the US Military joining you in your civil war against America. Recall the military has been rooting out the swastika tatted, white nationalists, Proud Boys etc.

    Do you really believe the US could survive an all-out civil war? Your devotion to the TrumpKult is sick.
