    Off Topic But HAD To Share This...CA Sues Carmakers

    Advertisement



    I am sorry, but this has to be the MOST RETARDED THING I HAVE EVER HEARD OF. This is just ridiculous:

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- California is suing the auto industry over tailpipe emissions, marking the first time a state has sought monetary damages for the impact of global warming by vehicles.

    Attorney General Bill Lockyer on Wednesday sued the six largest U.S. and Japanese automakers, claiming they have causing millions of dollars in damage by creating greenhouse gases.

    Lockyer is suing on the theory that greenhouse gases are a "public nuisance" under both California and federal law, an argument similar to one being pursued in a case before the 2nd U.S. District Court of Appeals in New York.

    Vehicles are the largest single source of greenhouse gas emissions in California. "In effect, we're getting the taxpayers' money back," Lockyer said in a telephone interview. -- Read More

    LMAO- Remember the times in which we live.

    Where you can get sued for making coffee too hot, or "forcing" people to eat fast food, making them fat.

    We need to file a lawsuit against California for filing frivilous lawsuits.

    Given the state of affairs with law suits, and the state of attitude in California, I think the shareholders should pass a by-law prohibiting the management from passing along any penalties from this suit to buyers in any other state, as long as a revenue stream still exists in California.

    When California tried a similarly stupid move basically mandating insurance costs lower than anywhere else in the country, the insurers simply stopped writing or renewing policies in the state. They then passed a law requiring insurers TO PAY A FEE TO NO LONGER WRITE POLICIES IN THE STATE! Of couse a judge threw that out before the ink was even dry. They eventually figured out that they couldn't change the entire country by forced of their will. Or so we thought. Somebody must be pumping crack into the air out there.

    hey, we're just all trying to make the world a better and healthier place to live!
    now, San Francisco has out-lawed styrofoam but decided to be more lenient on POT enforcement!

    from sfgate.com
    The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to outlaw the use of plastic foam to-go containers by city restaurants and to effectively decriminalize the use, sale and cultivation of marijuana by adults.

    I LOVE CALIFORNIA!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ now that's interesting. I wonder what they'd do if I were walking down the street with a joint in one hand and styrofoam packaged lunch leftover box in the other...
