Suing Oil

“For decades, these oil and gas companies spent millions to mislead consumers and discredit climate science in pursuit of profits. The defendants violated the District’s consumer protection law by concealing the fact that using fossil fuels threatens the health of District residents and the environment. OAG filed this suit to end these disinformation campaigns and to hold these companies accountable for their deceptive practices.”

How long before they add automakers pushing internal combustion engines? EVs here we come! This suit will likely gain traction after the Dems take over the Whitehouse, the Senate and the House in DC. It’s all good…
