New York City filed a lawsuit against five major oil companies, asking for billions of dollars to protect the city from climate change.

“In this litigation, the City seeks to shift the costs of protecting the City from climate change impacts back onto the companies that have done nearly all they could to create this existential threat,” said the complaint, which was filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan.

Is there a municipal "Darwin Award"?

If there isn't we should create our own to give out to them.  Did Deblasio spearhead any solar energy initiatives in New York or have any better ideas of how to keep people from freezing to death?
