    Report: Climate Provision Would Allow Global Warming 'Victims' to Sue

    The Times reported that Democratic Reps. Henry Waxman of California and Edward Markey of Massachusetts added it into a bill they authored.

    The provision, which was just released, reportedly would set grounds for plaintiffs who has "suffered" or expect to suffer "harm" attributable at least in part to government inaction. The provision defines "harm" as "any effect of air pollution (including climate change)," according to the Times. Plaintiffs could seek up to $75,000 in damages a year from the government, with $1.5 million being the maximum total payout.
    The stupidity is never ending. With all the challenges our country is facing, with our court system overburdened enough as is, we now have Waxman & Company taking stupidity to a whole new level.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Rat laywers helping out their rat lawyer friends with this man made global warming fairy tale scam.It amuses me when the man made global warming fairy tale believers can sit there and pretend that this is not a scam.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    I'm just wondering if this is just a shoe horn to pass cap and trade legislation.

    The argument being if there were cap and trade in place, it would reduce emissions to an acceptable level in which this type of legislation wouldn't be needed.
