Just days after below-freezing temperatures battered New York, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio sued five major oil companies over global warming.
The five oil companies named in the suit are BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell.
“The city seeks to shift the costs of protecting the city from climate change impacts back onto the companies that have done nearly all they could to create this existential threat,” the lawsuit claims, as reported by the New York Post.
Now if there were any proof that global warming exists, this might be an understandable effort.
However, the lack of research and solid proof that the earth is getting warmer make the mayor look silly for filing this lawsuit.
What makes him appear even crazier, however, is the fact that he filed this lawsuit just days after New York City saw record cold temperatures.
According to CNN, it was 9 degrees Fahrenheit in New York City on New Year’s Eve, with a wind chill of -4 degrees.
That was the second coldest New Year’s Eve on record for the city. The record cold was set in 1917, at 1 degree.
Record or near-record freezing temperatures were felt all around the country to start of 2018.
So where’s that global warming again?
It’s no surprise that liberal Mayor de Blasio believes the lies about global warming, but it’s absolutely ridiculous that global warming would be on his mind during one of the coldest years for New York City.
It just goes to show how gullible liberals are and how willing they are to ignore the facts.
