Trash Sues For Cash

Give me a freakin' break:

VICTIMS of Hurricane Katrina from Mississippi are seeking to sue carbon gas-emitting multinationals for helping fuel global warming and boosting the devastating 2005 storm, legal documents showed.

The class action suit brought by residents from southern Mississippi, which was ravaged by hurricane-force winds and driving rains, was first filed just weeks after the August 2005 storm hit.

"The plaintiffs allege that defendants' operation of energy, fossil fuels, and chemical industries in the United States caused the emission of greenhouse gasses that contributed to global warming," say the documents, seen by AFP.

The increase in global surface air and water temperatures "in turn caused a rise in sea levels and added to the ferocity of Hurricane Katrina, which combined to destroy the plaintiffs' private property, as well as public property useful to them".

Every single person taking part in this lawsuit emits carbon dioxide with every breath they take. Hopefully someone will countersue to keep these idiots from breeding.

What a pile of boloney. The only foks who would believe this are the scientifically ignorant. Al Gore style liars. Attorneys.

I wonder how many of these idiots were living in houses that replaced those destroyed by Hurricane Camille in 1969. You know, back when we were facing a new ice age.

What law firm would take such a frivolous case? What's its name?

Rick, the Democrat Party.

By the way, I worked on several CDBG housing projects on the coast after Katrina. Check the photos of one of the government subsidized housing developments in Biloxi, Mississippi. Covered parking, hot tub, swimming pool, weight rooms, the whole nine.

Can I countersue to keep them from breathing?
