Government payouts for those who suffer, or may suffer, from global warming?

Government has gone completely crazy.

Climate bill could trigger lawsuit landslide: Allows action from those 'expected to suffer'

Self-proclaimed victims of global warming or those who "expect to suffer" from it - from beachfront property owners to asthmatics - for the first time would be able to sue the federal government or private businesses over greenhouse gas emissions under a little-noticed provision slipped into the House climate bill.

Environmentalists say the measure was narrowly crafted to give citizens the unusual standing to sue the U.S. government as a way to force action on curbing emissions. But the U.S. Chamber of Commerce sees a new cottage industry for lawyers.

"You could be spawning lawsuits at almost any place [climate-change modeling] computers place at harm's risk," said Bill Kovacs, energy lobbyist for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

This is pure insanity. How could Bill Kovacs be a lobbyist? Isn't this a "lobbyist free administration?"

Interestingly, I thought that the scientific community came to a consensus about the reality of global warning? Were we mislead by the media? Global Warming Petition Project.

The absurd extension of this... when citizens in upstate New York can no longer afford heating oil because of cap and trade, will they be paid or reimbursed for the costs of additional fuel? Their problem will be the direct result of 'global warming' policy.
