What am I cheering for Exxon ?

If they were suing an Attorney general for being in the pocket of greenpeace sure I would cheer.

I'd also cheer if they were suing federal officials for promoting the insane gasahol program or cellolosic ethanol programs that have been nothing less than completely counterproductive.

I'd also cheer if they were suing over the sandbagging of the building of new refineries.

Mod the above up,
I learned auto repair working on a Model A that had been donated to my highschool. You practically didn't need a manual to do the work.
I used to work on my Vette (1978) with nothing but a good set of wrenches.
Now it's forget about it.
At the rate things are going you won't be able to change the oil in a car without taking it to a dealer.

Are we talking about climate or weather here ?
Or if warming is bad it's climate if it's good it's weather ?

The premise is that warming is bad for civilization and will destroy it. Well about the only instance I can think of warming maybe causing a problem for civilization is Anasazi and no one is really certain what happened there. Cooling has wrought hell for civilizations just look at middle east and Africa.
