New York City’s insane, corrupt but completely predictable behavior

New York City’s insane, corrupt but completely predictable behavior: “The New York City government is suing the world’s five largest publicly traded oil companies, seeking to hold them responsible for present and future damage to the city from climate change.”
“The suit, filed Tuesday against BP, Chevron, Conoco-Phillips, ExxonMobil and Royal Dutch Shell, claims the companies together produced 11 percent of all of global-warming gases through the oil and gas products they have sold over the years. It also charges that the companies and the industry they are part of have known for some time about the consequences but sought to obscure them.”
Here is a new case (to add to 3 others known to me) where there is the opportunity for the defendants (e.g. oil companies) to bring scientific evidence on the court record with full bore discovery, subpoena, testimony under oath, instead of the cases being decided under administrative law (e.g. MA v EPA.)
