The small Alaskan town of Kivalina (population: 390) is suing Exxon and several other oil companies, claiming they caused global warming, which has resulted in the melting of the sea ice that normally protects the the town from fierce winter storms. They’re seeking damages in excess of $400 million in order to relocate the town. Relocate to where – MANSIONS?
If Eskimos think they scapegoat big oil just because of the current political climate, they’re probably right. It wouldn’t surprise me if Exxon caves in… I mean settles out of court and helps relocate the town as a goodwill gesture.
