THE LITIGATOR: Schwarzenegger to SUE Oil Companies Over GLOBAL WARMING

THE LITIGATOR: Schwarzenegger to SUE Oil Companies Over GLOBAL WARMING”

Arnold Schwarzenegger announced at a SXSW interview with Politico yesterday evening that he is planning to sue the world's largest oil companies for "knowingly killing people all over the world".

The actor-turned-politician revealed the impending lawsuit while speaking with Politico at the annual South-by-Southwest festival in Texas; equating the issue with the tobacco industry and cigarette manufacturers almost one hundred years ago.

The former Governor of California explained that, to him, the practices of the major oil companies "is no different from the smoking issue".

Schwarzenegger compared what he said was oil companies' willful disregard of the risks associated with fossil fuels and global warming to big tobacco's attempts to cover up the detrimental side effects of smoking. "Every gas station on it, every auto should have a warning label on it, every product that has fossil fuels should have a warning label on it".

'If you walk into a room and you know you're going to kill someone, it's first-degree murder.

Global oil extraction has been accompanied by environmental degradation, and Schwarzenegger's case, whether eventually successful, represents a bold and polarizing move to publicize the widespread impacts of the world's reliance on fossil fuels. I think that women have been used and abused and treated horribly for too long, and now all of the elements came together to create this movement, and now finally puts the spotlight on this issue, and I hope people learn from that. "I think it's the same thing with the oil companies". You've got to look at it and say, "I made mistakes". He's supposed to be very busy, ' he added.

'The T-800 model that I play, he's traveling back in time to 2019 to get Trump out of prison, ' Schwarzenegger joked. However, previous year Schwarzenegger himself confirmed that he would be filming it after Terminator 6, so it seemed as though things were finally moving forward once more.

The movie was a hit, grossing $216 million worldwide, and the two stars' decision to take 20% of the box office instead of their usual salaries earned them the biggest paydays of their careers up to that point.
