Holding Fossil Fuel Companies Accountable, Where Does The Law Stand?

      In the past year, state and local governments across the United States have launched a new wave of litigation seeking to hold fossil fuel companies liable for damages caused by climate change. To date, 13 cities and counties in California, Colorado, Washington, and New York have filed lawsuits against major oil and gas producers such as ExxonMobil, BP, Chevron, and Shell, and in July the state of Rhode Island initiated its own legal proceedings, suing over damages caused to its infrastructure and coastal communities by climate change – the first time a US state has done so. The basic argument underpinning these suits is that these companies knowingly contributed to climate change by extracting and selling fossil fuels, obscuring the science of climate change, and fighting policies aimed at mitigating climate change – and consequently they should therefore be held accountable for some of the adaptation costs incurred by governments.

      The plaintiffs are pursuing multiple state law legal theories: public nuisance, private nuisance, negligence, trespass, failure to warn, and design defect, among others

          Missing from the list is Louis CK, who was in last year's top 10 with $52m (£41m) earnings. ie. One million bucks a week.

          1. Jerry Seinfeld
          2. Kevin Hart
          3. Dave Chappelle
          4. Chris Rock

              ITRC, idtheftcenter.org was created to give victims of identity theft assistance, at no cost, help and information on what to do.

              One of the many things they do is publish banks, companies and government agencies whose computers have been breached. In October, there were 1027 breaches in the United States, with over 57 million records at risk or possibly taken.

              Here is a list of the companies that reported to the agency, just in October. It is over 100 pages long.

                  Trump's moneyprinting is something he boasts about. When he talks about spending (all those tax cuts for billionaires and military industrial complex donations) what he's really talking about is borrowing, increasing the National Deficit by trillions of dollars. Digging a deeper hole.

                  There is no argument imo that this is purely for political gain. I doubt he knows the difference between reality and reality tv, it's just a populaity contest for him. (who has the most audacity)

                  Not unlike placing a bet on Roulette. (Russian if you like)
