Three US Counties Threaten World Economy In the Name of Fighting Global Warming

California: Marin County, San Mateo County, and Imperial Beach have filed lawsuits against oil companies claiming the energy producers are causing rising sea levels and flooding. The plaintiffs are asking for $54-billion dollars in compensation. It they should win a judgment, the precedence would terminate what is left of productivity around the world. Oil and coal companies would collapse overnight, taking the world’s major sources of energy with them. [The ensuing economic collapse would cause far more death and destruction than predicted by even the most creative of the global-warming myth makers.] –GEG

Without a doubt, fossil fuels – oil and coal, primarily – drove the industrial and technological revolutions of the past 150 years, and they continue to support the advancement of economies around the world today, while making life for billions of people more comfortable than at any time in history.

Despite that, lunatics in three California counties now think they have a right to destroy all of that progress, and over nothing more than a grand hoax.

As reported by The Daily Caller, Marin County, San Mateo County and Imperial Beach have each filed separate, though nearly identical, lawsuits against 37 of the world’s largest oil and coal companies, claiming that the “global warming” they allegedly caused has led to a rise in sea level and erosion of beaches in their jurisdictions.

In their filings, county lawyers say that there has been a rise in flooding, meaning beaches are eroding more quickly – and that’s the fault of evil oil and coal companies who are “destroying the world.”

As such, the three counties are seeking monetary compensation (of course) for current and future damages. And, while the plaintiffs do not have any specific number in mind, they claim they’ll need at least $54 billion from these companies in the coming decades.

“This is a long-anticipated move in climate litigation,” Michael Burger, executive director of environmental law at Columbia University, told The San Francisco Chronicle. “You’ll find pieces of it in other cases, but bringing it together like this is different than what’s been done before. You can expect there will be a great deal of interest in how this litigation proceeds.”

Plaintiffs are using the cigarette company argument, claiming that oil and coal companies have long known their drilling and production activities have been damaging the earth and causing “global warming,” but that they have sought to discredit scientific findings on the matter.

Actually, those conducting the “scientific” studies have discredited themselves, by faking data and lying about the available evidence in order to push their climate change agenda. [RELATED: Global warming hoax revealed AGAIN: Study finds surface temp data ‘adjusted’ to show continual warming.]

Plus, as The National Sentinel has reported, the executive secretary of the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change has admitted very clearly that the hoax of global warming/climate change is being perpetuated specifically to destroy capitalism and change the world’s economic model.

“This is the first time in the history of mankind that we are setting ourselves the task of intentionally, within a defined period of time, to change the economic development model that has been reigning for at least 150 years, since the Industrial Revolution,” she said recently.

Nevertheless, officials in three California counties believe they have the right to destroy an entire industry – the very one responsible for their existence – in pursuit of payola on the basis of a fake narrative.

Granted, the suits have major legal hurdles, as The Daily Caller noted:

In order to prove their case, the counties will have to find a specific connection between harm from global warming and the actions of each energy company. Additionally, they’ll have to show that the issue cannot be handled by government regulations.

In addition, a similar suit brought by an Alaskan town was tossed out of court in 2008.

But, before you dismiss this effort out of hand, remember that the Church of Global Warming has many believers and followers – not a few of them sit as judges on state and federal courts. A couple of decades ago this kind of challenge would have been laughed at, but today, the belief that SUVs, cattle farts and life-sustaining carbon dioxide are killing the planet is pervasive.

New TV Series Pranks Celebrities into Making Outrageous Statements

July 19, 2018 Youtube 1

In a new TV series on Showtime, Sacha Baron Cohen poses as a TV journalist or film producer and, in that disguise, lures celebrities into making outrageous statements on camera or endorsing outrageous proposals. Famous figures caught in the trap include former Congressman Joe Walsh, Senator Bernie Sanders, Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, former VP Dick Cheney, and Larry Pratt, former head of Gun Owners of America. Cheney was given a waterboard to sign and actually did it. In two episodes, Cohen posed as a gun-rights advocate from Israel who wanted to interview Walsh and Pratt on the advantages of teaching gun safety and shooting skills to children as well as adults. Not suspecting that they were being lured into a trap, they both concurred with Cohen’s suggestion that kids are never too young to learn these things. When he said they should be taught starting at sixteen all the way down to three, they foolishly agreed. From that moment, forward, the thrust of the episode was that these men want to give loaded guns to three-year-olds. […]
