Hurricane Katrina victims to sue oil companies over global warming

Any judge worth his salt should dismiss (terminate) this suit with extreme prejudice and fine the plaintiffs and attorneys for bringing this nonsensical turd in the first place.
The class action suit brought by residents from southern Mississippi, which was ravaged by hurricane-force winds and driving rains, was first filed just weeks after the August 2005 storm hit.

"The plaintiffs allege that defendants' operation of energy, fossil fuels, and chemical industries in the United States caused the emission of greenhouse gasses that contributed to global warming," say the documents seen by the AFP news agency.

The increase in global surface air and water temperatures "in turn caused a rise in sea levels and added to the ferocity of Hurricane Katrina, which combined to destroy the plaintiffs' private property, as well as public property useful to them."
Update: Judge Rules Lawsuit Brought by Hurricane Katrina Victims Against Oil Companies For Causing "Global Warming" Can Move Forward. Well, so much for that shot at Judicial lucidity.
