The power to file third party lawsuits has made environmentalists the fifth branch of government. This situation is absurb. The environmentalists are not harmed by the actions of the oil companies. We have government agencies who are responsible for implementing laws passed by Congress. Until Congress takes away the power to file third party lawsuits, we will have environmental obstructionism. With this global warming hysteria, third party lawsuits will cause an energy meltdown even if we get a reasonable energy policy with more drilling and more refineries.

On the other hand, it might greatly elevate our natural gas supply :-)))

Can you please explain what that lawsuit is? I think it means the polar bares cannot sue so these guys do? 

Plus maybe you have a situation where the Sierra Club sues even though it has no members where the suit is filed

Why can’t we sue the environmentalists for causing us pain and suffering? Seems to me we have the same right as they do....their actions are directly affecting each and every one of us.

This is the key to ridding ourselves of the eco-fascist movement. Remove that and the eco-nazis go out of business. We can thank that stupid RINO Nixon for our problems.

Incidentally, the economic impact of listing endangered species must also be considered, but the Marxist traitor judges never bring that into the mix.

We are infested with seditionists in this country.
