It would be interesting to know what would happen if those scammers actually succeeded with one of their claims. Prices for energy would rise. Would energy companies spread it over the world, or over the region concerned, or the city in question? Would people understand that their incompetent city officials are to blame for their price rises? Or would those same politicians then rail against fossil fuel companies charging such steep prices for their wares while they themselves are ultimately responsible for those price rises. I have a feeling we will see more of this ghastly show of freaks. The energy industry better stays on high alert. Politicians will use any dirty trick, they will lie, cheat, steal and scream in order to save their butts. This is not over by any count
A federal judge last June tossed a lawsuit by the cities of San Francisco and Oakland against five major energy companies—BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, Exxon Mobil, and Royal Dutch Shell.
