Have you suffered from global warming?

Or even if you might at some point in the future, you’ll love this.

How about the latest leftwing strategy to deal with global warning: Sue the government

Originally reported by the Washington Post, there’s a bill in Congress containing a measure for those who…get this…

“… has suffered, or reasonably expects to suffer, a harm attributable, in whole or in part,” to government inaction to file a “citizen suit.” The term “harm” is broadly defined as “any effect of air pollution (including climate change), currently occurring or at risk of occurring.”

Government liability would be limited to $75,000 per case and $1.5 million per year, but the real plot behind this may just be coming to light.

I haven’t found the text of the bill, but Judge Napolitano also reported on Fox News this morning that a clause in the bill stipulates that if you sue the government, you must also sue an industry that has caused the real or perceived harm. Talk about a great way to stimulate the economy…bankrupt industry and give their money to the people!

Some are calling this (correctly in my opinion) an attempt to achieve by regulation what the left can’t achieve by legislation.

Oh, well. This character will likely get rich off these lawsuits.
