Thats what it has always been about. Money. Those cities have run themselves into the ground economically and financially and politicians need more cash to paper over the disaster they have on their hands and spend even more. Its a lottery. They don’t give a lump of dogfeces about protecting anything, least of all the planet. Just give them the damn money. Thats all they really care for. For some more waste and destruction. Politicians never make money – they only spend it.
Cities and states are suing energy companies in a desperate attempt to erase their poor spending choices.
