......we see lawsuits against the Global Warming zealots who have, at a minimum, exagerrated the threat of global warming? Their dire forecasts led nations to enact stringent & costly energy rules and regulations. A skilled litigator can argue these onerous rules and regulations caused some businesses to decline as well as the states and towns where the impacted businesses were located.
It is not a stretch to imagine a bankrupt state like Michigan suing Al Gore and others for ruining that state's economy due to faulty [malicious psuedo-science?] theories.
Jeez, I have convinced myself this argument is a winning one! I wish I were a hungry lawyer. Heh.
