Commie New York City mayor seeks billions from oil companies, blames them for climate change

A week after a brutal snowstorm froze New York City, Mayor Bill de Blasio delivered Wednesday a one-two punch in the name of climate change, announcing he will seek billions in damages from five major oil-and-gas companies while moving to divest from fossil fuels.

“It’s time for them to start paying for the damage they have done,” said Mr. de Blasio at a press conference at the Manhattan Youth Center. “It’s time for big oil to take responsibility for the devastation they have wrought.”
