AEA Urges Dismissal of Mayor de Blasio’s Climate ‘Shakedown’

WASHINGTON – Today, the following statement was released by Thomas J. Pyle, President of the American Energy Alliance (AEA) regarding energy producers’ motion to dismiss New York City’s climate change lawsuit at a hearing before Judge John Keenen in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York:

“New York’s liberal mayor Bill de Blasio has been an enthusiastic advocate of more residential growth along New York’s waterfront while at the same time attempting to secure billions from energy companies to abate alleged damage from rising sea levels. This blatant hypocrisy isn’t even the worst part of this story. It’s obvious his shakedown of energy companies is designed to bail out a financially mismanaged city – one struggling to keep itself above troubling financial waters. De Blasio’s frivolous litigation ignores the benefits of affordable, reliable energy and should be seen as an insult to New York City’s residents, especially those who are already struggling to make ends meet.”​
