Judge: Big Oil Does Not Owe San Francisco for ‘Causing Climate Change’

Published

on

A federal judge in California has ruled against the cities of San Francisco and Oakland in a landmark case, holding that large oil conglomerates are not financially liable for causing climate change.

“The problem deserves a solution on a more vast scale than can be supplied by a district judge or jury in a public nuisance case,” wrote U.S. District Judge William Alsup.

According to the San Francisco Chroniclethe two cities wanted Chevron, ExxonMobil and other oil giants to bear the cost of remedies for a rising sea level, which they claim is caused by climate change and thus by fossil fuels. For example, the cities wanted the oil companies to pay for seawalls because “oil companies have long known that greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuels are warming the planet.”

In a very conservative holding, Alsup rejected the notion, saying that it is up to federal regulators, not the courts, to use their expertise to implement such policy provisions. Alsup also noted that Americans, long having enjoyed the benefits of the products produced by the oil giants, would be hypocritical to turn on them now, forcing them to pay for what consumers demanded.

“Having reaped the benefit of that historic progress, would it really be fair to now ignore our own responsibility in the use of fossil fuels and place the blame for global warming on those who supplied what we demanded?” he wrote. “Is it really fair, in light of those benefits, to say that the sale of fossil fuels was unreasonable?”

The ruling is a win for private industry. Several other municipalities around the country were considering similar lawsuits. For now, the oil giants will be able to produce the products necessary for daily life in the first world without being hassled by pesky local governments looking to make a buck off of the climate change fad.

Josh Hawley RIPS World Health Organization Director After ‘Body Bags’ Threat

Tedros Adhanon claimed targeting the WHO would lead to more deaths.

Published

Missouri Senator Josh Hawley slammed World Health Organization director Tedros Adhanon in a Wednesday tweet, after the latter threatened that American sanction or defunding of the WHO in the wake of the Chinese coronavirus epidemic would lead to “many more body bags.”

President Trump had announced that the United States would be cutting its annual contributions to the WHO during Tuesday’s press briefing, pointing out the UN-affiliated entity’s long track record of pro-Chinese distortion, inaccurate medical advice, and political agitation against the United States and the travel bans instituted on China.

If Adhanon didn’t want the World Health Organization to be identified as a political actor, he shouldn’t have openly condemned the notion of common sense travel bans on China as countries across the world implemented them.

Adhanon resorted to dramatic threats when Trump’s intention to cut WHO funding was announced, stating that the United States would incur many more “body bags” if it “politicized” the coronavirus epidemic. Adhanon has consistently resorted to political rhetoric since the onset of the pandemic.

Hawley’s not the first Senator to repudiate Adhanon in the wake of the WHO’s lackadaisical coronavirus response. Arizona’s Martha McSally called for the Ethiopian bureaucrat to resign from his post, citing Adhanon’s long track record of affiliating with Marxist-Leninist political parties.

President Trump went on to blast the WHO’s dubious and ineffective response to the coronavirus disease at Wednesday’s press conference.

The United States has been the greatest individual contributor to the budget of the World Health Organization for years, regularly paying hundreds of millions of dollars into the WHO’s multi-billion annual budget.
