Some of the most liberal outposts in the United States -- San Francisco, Oakland, and New York City -- have attempted to sue some of the nation's largest oil companies for their role in knowingly contributing to climate change. The San Francisco and Oakland cases were thrown out some time ago, and now a U.S. district judge has dismissed New York's attempt to do the same.
The lawsuits alleged that oil giants like BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil, and Royal Dutch Shell knew about the climate impact of oil production and drilling, but they ignored their own scientific findings and broadly accepted scientific findings. The judges reviewing the case more or less arrived at the same conclusion, which was that problems related to climate change should be dealt with by Congress and the executive branch, not oil companies.
