leather handbags leather handbags Global warming suit hits carmakers



District Court in Oakland, seeks unspecified compensation for the billions of dollars in damages from global warming caused by cars.



The lawsuit names General Motors, Ford Motor F, DaimlerChrysler DCX, ToyotaTM, Honda HMC and Nissan NSANY. They have made 88% of the vehicles sold in the USA so far this year.



Vehicle emissions are the single most rapidly growing source of the carbon emissions contributing to global warming, yet the federal government and automakers have refused to act, state Attorney General Bill Lockyer said in a statement. It is time to hold these companies responsible for their contribution to this crisis.



Though limited to California, the lawsuit could invite others from around the nation.



CEOs and members of boards of directors of companies have to be thinkin leather handbags g, Do we have liabilities here? Are we exposed here? says David Doniger, climate policy director for the Natural Resources Defense Council. These kinds of suits are only going to multiply until we have an effective national legislation that curbs global warming.



GM, Ford and DaimlerChrysler referred response to their Washingtonbased trade group, the Alliance of Automobile Man leather handbags ufacturers, which said that todays cars and trucks are 99% cleaner than the past generation.



This type of lawsuit requires courts to go beyond their jurisdiction and opens the door to lawsuits targeting any activity that uses fossil fuel for energy, the group said.



Honda, not a member of the alliance, issued a statement saying it favo leather handbags rs higher fuel economy standards as one way of reducing greenhouse gases.



The lawsuit is similar to one filed by eight state attorneys general and the city of New York in 2004 against utilities, alleging that smokestack pollution increased global warming. That lawsuit was dismissed. Its on appeal.



These types of lawsuits arent clear cut.



Nuisance law is very squishy, says Sean Hecht, executive director of the Environmental Law Center at the University of CaliforniaLos Angeles. Its a basic feature of nuisance law that it reaches problems that are not otherwise illegal. leather handbags
