California, the land of the sue happy idiots

Here comes another in a long line of stupid lawsuits. California is suing 6 auto manufacturers for polluting their states with greenhouse gases from the vehicles they produce. Why not sue the farmers for the cow farts? Or themselves for their own farts? Maybe I shouldn't give them any ideas. Farts may be outlawed in California soon.
Not every problem can be resolved by suing the producer of the problem. Perhaps California should be using the millions they will waste on this law suit towards fixing their problems of traffic congestion. Marlboro doesn't make people smoke, McDonalds doesn't make people fat, and car manufacturers doesn't make pollution. Individuals do. If California doesn't want to be a polluted cesspool they need to stop polluting. All this will do is waste the tax payers and auto manufactures money.

To be honest with you, I saw something like that coming. Yes, we will be the ones paying. There are simply far too many cars in cali, and now the requirements on auto makers are going to be tougher and tougher.
