Michigan AG wants to sue oil and gas companies for climate change

Quote
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."

And they're not the first

Quote
With the suit, Michigan will join states such as Minnesota, New Jersey, Connecticut, Vermont, Rhode Island that have filed climate fraud lawsuits against oil and gas companies, alleging petroleum products played a central role in contributing to the climate crisis.

Or we could just like...burn a little less oil.

It says a lot about how addicted society is to oil, that people think mass death is preferable to just building a little nuclear power and maybe building some trains or something.
Maybe a rare occurence, but then you only have to get murdered once to ruin your whole day.

I didn't know there were whales in St. Louis. I guess that's a classic example of an invasive species.

There is a single very large coal power plant in China that puts out as much pollution as the rest of the
first world countries combined. I never hear them say we need to nuke it. I don't think they are taking this as serious as they should.
Sometimes we carry more weight then we owe.
And sometimes goes on and on and on.

Thieves cut charging cables at Tesla charging stations for copper. 
I saw a video from California late yesterday.  A search this morning came up with this one from Houston and one from San Francisco area.

They'll probably blame white male domestic terrorists without a college education. There's always a chance of that being correct. There's more of a chance that it's environazis that hate Elon more than they love the Erf.

Saw something a year or so ago about people coming out and finding their EVs unplugged from the charger. Blamed Karens going around doing it because for some reason it offends them for an unattended car to be left plugged in.

China’s EVs Hit by Major Scandal! Multiple Models Show Electric Leaks, BYD Causes Brain Hemorrhage   ---  China Observer
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C7PubmPu-3I

I thought this was an interesting video.  Essentially talks about a Chinese electrical car that had the car body/frame electrified.  Sounded to me like very poor insulation somewhere.  The video keeps referring to it as a leak; maybe a translation error.  Anyway, the description I heard sounds like the guy got electrocuted which caused internal burns.  Might have been more to it that I didn't catch.

This isn't something I really considered with EV's.  A quick search says Tesla cars run at 350 to 400 volts which is more than enough.  I assume there should have been some sort of ground fault detection or other safety mechanism that wasn't working.

In China, that is a feature, not a bug.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Conservatives see George Orwell's "1984" as a cautionary tale.  Progressives view it as a "how to" manual.

My wife often says to me, "You are evil and must be destroyed." She may be right.

Liberals believe one should never let reason, logic and facts get in the way of a good emotional argument.

WTH? Wouldn't have expected something like this out of Vermont.
Of course their problem will be how do you prove an event was cause by anything to do with the oil companies. Of course proof isn't needed nowadays when you have emotion on your side.

    Vermont becomes 1st state to require oil companies pay for damage from climate change https://t.co/237BSJeKzS
    — The Associated Press (@AP) May 31, 2024

Quote
Under the legislation, the Vermont state treasurer, in consultation with the Agency of Natural Resources, would provide a report by Jan. 15, 2026, on the total cost to Vermonters and the state from the emission of greenhouse gases from Jan. 1, 1995, to Dec. 31, 2024. The assessment would look at the effects on public health, natural resources, agriculture, economic development, housing and other areas. The state would use federal data to determine the amount of covered greenhouse gas emissions attributed to a fossil fuel company.

It’s a polluter-pays model affecting companies engaged in the trade or business of extracting fossil fuel or refining crude oil attributable to more than 1 billion metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions during the time period. The funds could be used by the state for such things as upgrading stormwater drainage systems; upgrading roads, bridges and railroads; relocating, elevating or retrofitting sewage treatment plants; and making energy efficient weatherization upgrades to public and private buildings. It’s modeled after the federal Superfund pollution cleanup program.
