Should owners of farmland, beachfront property, etc., sue carbon polluters?

If you bought a farm or beachfront property (or whatever) based on the climate twenty to thirty years ago, maybe you should sue those responsible for changing the climate. The Republican Party continues to hand out free rights to pollute the air and change the climate to any industry ready to help get Republicans elected. As long as that is happening, those whose property value is stripped from them by climate change really have no alternative. If Republicans are going to accept money to side with those who are literally taking the rain out of the sky in some areas, farmers and others have a right to be compensated. They should sue.

The same goes for anyone whose property value is under assault by Republicans and the carbon polluting industries that pay Republicans to do their bidding. The southern states, thanks to Republicans, may be looking at a future where they are essentially living in northern Mexico's current climate. In effect (and I'm only barely kidding), Republicans are kicking southern folks out of the country and into Mexico.

Maybe a lawsuit or two will get the attention of carbon polluters. If they had to pay for the right to pump carbon into the air (instead of paying off Republicans to let them pollute for free), polluters would change their ways. Maybe then, farmers wouldn't be seeing their land and irrigation rivers dry up, people with beachfront property wouldn't be watching it fall into the sea, etc. The people who do the damage should be paying for the damage they do. That's the carbon polluters.

In the meantime, another thing we can do is simply try to vote every Republican out of every office in every election. We need to send them a message that siding with global warming against the American people won't be laughed off as a "hoax" anymore. People are catching on.

1. Hold your breath.

That is the best way to NOT contribute C02 to the atmosphere.

Just don't breathe.

3. I thought lefty gave up on global warming years ago

and swapped it for climate change.

If you want to sue for climate change I think you will need to sue the sun.

16. It is summer time here so Global Warming is the acceptable term as it is currently hot. ...

In the winter Cimate Change sounds much better because it is often extremely cold.

10. Where do you come up with these imbecilic ideas?

Btw,you do realize that gloBULL warming has always been at the bottom of the public policy priorities.
I know that the view of the world from the inside of a cult is skewed but you really should poke your head out and look around.

11. Republicans in congress created the climate problem, which is why

Dems were able to easily fix the problem in 2010 when they held both houses. I don’t know why people keep going about China and India, we both know the issue is caused by American republicans.

24. If they do, we should charge them for all the favorable special Legislation, grants and

cheep flood insurance they get. I'm tired of underwriting the risk they voluntarily assume.

26. If they had to pay for the right to pump carbon into the air

the increased costs would be passed down to CONSUMERS.

All of that money should then go to the farmers and landowners who are sinking carbon for consumers like YOU.

If congress can't skim funds to waste elsewhere they would never pass such an arrangement.

polluters, would you care then? Or even be allowed to care?
