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

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

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 (XOM.N), BP Plc (BP.L), Royal Dutch Shell (RDSa.L) 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.

Shell is “disappointed” by the suit and believes climate change requires “inclusive action from all business sectors, including ours,” said spokeswoman Anna Arata.

The industry provides affordable energy “while substantially reducing emissions,” said Paul Afonso, API’s chief legal officer, adding that the suit is “meritless.”

BP declined to comment.

“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.”

Earlier this month, the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan ruled in a separate lawsuit in favor of BP, Chevron Corp (CVX.N), ConocoPhillips (COP.N), Exxon and Shell, and rejected the city’s efforts to sue under state nuisance law for damages caused by the companies’ “admittedly legal” production and sale of fossil fuels, and said the city’s federal common law claims were displaced by the federal Clean Air Act.

That lawsuit, filed in 2018, was an early effort among U.S. states and cities to turn to courts and use state law to address climate change.

    I have found a good description of myself on ZeroHedge comment section.

    The most terrifying force of death come from the hands of ‘Men who wanted to be left alone’

    They try so very hard to mind their own business and provide for themselves and their families

    They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it

    They know the moment they fight back, their lives as they have lived them are over

    The moment the “Men who wanted to be left alone’ fight back, it is a small form of suicide, they are literally killing off who they used to be

    Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these ‘Men who wanted to be left alone’, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives

    They fight with raw hate and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play acting with politics and terror

    TRUE TERROR will soon arrive at the Left’s door and they will cry scream and beg for mercy and it will fall upon deaf ears

    Gotta love NYC liberals and the politicians that they elect. Instead of accepting responsibility for their actions, sue somebody, anybody, for delivering the products they demand.

    Sounds about right for the totally delusional and self righteous far left. They have “principles” as long as somebody ELSE pays the bills.

    Two of my car tires were leaking air. While I was doing the brake jobs, I said to my self, I will bring the tires to the garage so he cant fix air leaking and install a new valves.

    Show up there, the owner and a young women were both wearing a mask and the surrounding of their eyes, especially the bottom were brown. The guy look all panicked and to told me to say, away because of COVID. I told them there is no COVID, then I asked him, you did have the vaccine, he answer yes. SO happy stupid people are finally dying. I just don’t care about them dying.

    If you killed the best and most productives member of society like car mechanics, welders and so on, how are you going to rebuild anything. With people with a master degree in sociology. Again, you fucking piece of shit politicians/Freemason/Illuminati fucking it up again. You ares just good at fucking things up, lying, deceiving and manipulating. Nothing else, you are the garbage of the earth and I welcome your death

    This look like a plan to exterminate all human being from the earth. If someone if trying to rebuild something new like NWO, he would not kill car mechanics and 34 year old women at the prime of health. So I guess this is the end of the human race on earth. Cannot be another explanation. No point participating to anything, just sit back and take it easy until you die and the earth go silence.

    I think I have it too. I am going to die, I am going to die. I just did a close inspection of my eyes. The surrounding of my eyes especially the bottom have changed. In a monthe form now I will probably have a brown eyes. I am doom. Finally, I will be dead before 60 year old.

    Well, now I know what to do, sit on mym ass and wait to die. Could be worst.

    I do have the COVID crap.

    See 1:47 lower eyelid on right. I have the same thing but no color upper eyelid.

    My eyes are also changing but I don’t give a shit. I don’t have prostate cancer anymore. In September 2020 I used to drip urine after urination and I had trouble to control it. It is all gone. Is COVID a cure against cancer ? I would like to know so I can stop masturbating. Up to now I assume masturbation was the cure against prostate cancer.

    This is not about peak oil. I don’t care if all the population of the earth die. It is about the bad aliens/Freemason/Illuminati to stop using the human race as their personal slave.

    I want the bad aliens/Freemason/Illumniati to tell us, the human race, the truth about this universe. It is pretty obvious that the earth is not round but flat. It is obvious that the gravity is an electromagnet force. You tell the truth to the human race are we all die.

    Or maybe we should torture you to death until we get the truth. Either way works for me.

    I was able to fix my car tire leaking, it was the valve that I replaced my self. So nice to have hand tools and real life skills

    I still don’t give a shit if all life on earth die. Still don’t care. You need to find someone else to help you. I think I saw reptilians shape snifter when I went to the garage for fixing my leaking tires. If you are awaken they look blurry and their eyes are located on the site of their head. No car mechanic dress all in White clothing.

    I cared more about my tire leaking air, that I care to speak with shitty reptilians that have been enslaving human for thousand of year. Life is a failed concept anyway. Better terminate this failed experiment called life: vegetate, animal, humans and reptilians.

    I am still upset about the spying that the reptilians/CIA/Freemason/Illuminati did on my. This summarized really well how I feel about it:

    The most terrifying force of death, comes from the hands of “Men who wanted to be left Alone”.

    They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love.

    They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it.

    They know, that the moment they fight back, the lives as they have lived them, are over.

    The moment the “Men who wanted to be left Alone” are forced to fight back, it is a small form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. . . .

    Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these “Men who wanted to be left Alone”, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives.

    They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror.

    TRUE TERROR will arrive to those who dare to fuck with the “Men who wanted to be left Alone”,they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy . . . . but it will fall upon deaf ears

    According to genetic entropy, the human race is about to go extinct because of multiple deleterious mutations. Some that by 2040 Whites man will be infertile.

    GOD has two choices, either , he let the human race go extinct or he modifies the genetic code of the human race trough the sun ray. This is why the sun is Whites, I think we are being genetically modified and transformed into something else.

    There is a lot of reptilians living amount us now. I came back from the grocery store. I was surprised the be number of reptilians. If they want to be upgraded genetically, they need to move into up the sun with us.

    My lower eyelid is looking really white when I look at it outside during day light. I think (not sure yet) that I am turning into a being of light. we will see.

    See 4:04 to see what is a being of light.
