Wealthy Leftists Wage Lawfare Against Energy Industry

Leftists are systematically destroying the American energy industry, the better to reduce us to shivering in the dark. As with most devastation inflicted by Democrats, this has been accomplished largely through regulation, which is increasingly driven by lawfare — as practiced by the California firm Sher Edling.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. James Comer (R-KY) pull back some drywall to reveal the termites busily destroying the framework of the economy:

Cruz and Comer noted that Ann Carlson, the current acting administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), worked as a consultant for Sher Edling before she joined the Biden administration.

Carlson has pushed regulation meant to deprive us of proper automobiles and force us into unsafe, unaffordable, unreliable, and often unusable glorified golf carts, as an intermediary step toward abolishing independent transport for the hoi polloi altogether.

Fox News Digital previously reported that she helped raise money from donors for the firm’s litigation, a scheme that involved famed actor Leonardo DiCaprio

Rich leftists like DiCaprio travel by superyacht while demanding the rest of us live like peasants because the climate.

Regarding the lawfare,

Since 2016, the year Sher Edling was founded, the firm has pursued aggressive climate-related litigation on behalf of Delaware, Minnesota, Rhode Island, New Jersey, New York City, Washington, D.C., San Francisco, Baltimore, Honolulu and several local governments across the country. The first-of-their-kind lawsuits allege major oil companies like Chevron, ExxonMobil and Shell have deceived the public about climate change.

Leftist ideology dictates that the fossil fuels that keep us alive by serving as the lifeblood of the economy make it be too warm outside. Anyone who fails to echo this dogma is a purveyor of misinformation.

This attack on our standard of living has been funded by dark money:

According to tax filings, between 2017 and 2020, the secretive Collective Action Fund for Accountability, Resilience, and Adaptation (CAF) wired more than $5.2 million to Sher Edling. Then, in 2021 alone, CAF funneled another $3 million to the firm.

Like the MSM, CAF appears to be an unofficial branch of the Democratic Party:

CAF switched its fiscal sponsorship from the Resources Legacy Fund to the New Venture Fund (NVF), a nonprofit that is part of the left-wing Arabella Advisors network and which boasts deep connections to big-dollar Democratic Party donors, sometime in 2021.

Money pours into CAF from pernicious left-wing foundations, of which there are many, including the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.

“Some left-wing groups funnel millions to law firms to sue companies across the country on questionable legal grounds,” Comer remarked during a Sept. 13 Oversight Committee hearing on third-party litigation funding. “They are trying to use the courts to put these companies out of business or limit their ability to bring new products to market.”

Comer continues:

“These groups know that their tactics and goals are too extreme for the American people to support. So, rather than use the electoral process, they are implementing their agenda through litigation against both the public and private sectors.”

Democrats favor the democratic approach only so long as they find it expedient. Their agenda is so conspicuously malevolent that not even the complicit media can make it palatable to voters.
