New York City commie Mayor Bill de Blasio sued the five major oil companies for global warming today.
De Blasio says the city will be seeking billions in the lawsuit to recoup money spent by the city for resiliency efforts related to climate change.
New York City just came off its coldest holiday season in the city’s history.
But why let facts get in the way of a good headline?
New York City set a RECORD COLD record on January 1st.
The temperature reached 19 degrees a record cold high for that date.

The record cold last week caused New York families to set a record in natural gas use.
De Blasio wants to punish these companies with a junk science lawsuit.
The Chicago Tribune reported:
New York City is suing five major oil companies, claiming they have contributed to global warming.
Mayor Bill de Blasio says the city will be seeking billions in the lawsuit to recoup money spent by the city for resiliency efforts related to climate change.
The defendants in the city’s federal lawsuit are BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil and Royal Dutch Shell.
A BP spokesman declined comment. A Shell spokesman said climate change is a complex issue that should not be addressed by the courts. The other three did not immediately comment.
