Kivalina, pop. 377, is a tiny village located on a barrier island in Alaska. It has an elevation of nine feet. The U.S. Army Corp of Engineers is planning to spend $16 million taxpayer dollars to protect the shore line and town infrastructure. Plus another $196 million dollars to relocate the town. That works out to more than $500,000.00 per man, woman and child. Enter carpetbagging gadfly attorney Stephen Susman.
With little more than convenient circumstances, this parasite has filed suit against 24 oil and gas companies, blaming them for providing the world with oil and gas, enabling global warming which according to the suit, has raised the sea level and has caused the erosion of this tiny island. So, ladies and gentlemen, wonder no longer where the environmental movement gets it's money. They get it from coerced donations from the very industries that they are attacking. It's commonly known as the Jesse Jackson payoff.
Oh, and did I mention that Mr. Susman is a big player in the Democrat Party?
