"Automakers sued for global warming"



Lockyer wallets, here he comes! "A lawsuit has been filed in a U.S. federal court against leading U.S. and Japanese auto manufacturers, alleging their vehicles contribute to global warming. The legal action, filed Wednesday in Oakland, Calif., by California Attorney General Bill Lockyer, alleges the vehicles' emissions have harmed the resources, infrastructure and environmental health of California, costing the state millions of dollars to address current and future effects."
