UnFRIGGIN'beliveable!!!!!!!!!!!! Are some people in CA really this retarded? Talk about a waste of taxpayer's money......... California filed civil suits Wednesday against three U.S. and three Japanese automakers on Wednesday, accusing them of contributing to global warming. CBC News The suit names General Motors, Ford, the U.S. Chrysler division of DaimlerChrysler, along with the U.S. arms of Toyota, Honda and Nissan. California says the exhaust gases of millions of cars, SUVs and trucks have ended up costing the state millions of dollars. "Global warming has already injured California, its environment, its economy and the health and well-being of its citizens,” California attorney general Bill Lockyer said in a statement. Lockyer said the lawsuit, filed in a federal court in Oakland, Calif., is the first-ever attempt to make automakers legally responsible for damages caused by greenhouse gas emissions from their vehicles. "Vehicle emissions are the single most rapidly growing source of the carbon emissions contributing to global warming, yet the federal government and automakers have refused to act," Lockyer said. "It is time to hold these companies responsible for their contribution to this crisis." The complaint charges that the automakers have created a "public nuisance" by producing vehicles responsible for 30 per cent of all carbon dioxide emissions in California. It asks for damages for current and future harm. Lockyer told Reuters he will be asking for "tens or hundreds of millions of dollars" in damages. Really, WTF are these people trying to accomplish? Can someone please explain why an Attorney General is filing such a ridiculous lawsuit?
