Arnold Schwarzenegger is at SXSW and he revealed that big oil companies should consider him a predator….
According to NYDailynews:
During a live recording of Politico’s Off Message podcast Sunday, the former California governor revealed his plan to sue oil companies, drawing a comparison to how tobacco companies hid details about how harmful their products were for consumers.
“The oil companies knew from 1959 on, they did their own study that there would be global warming happening because of fossil fuels, and on top of it that it would be risky for people’s lives, that it would kill,” Schwarzenegger said. “We’re going to go after them, and we’re going to be in there like an Alabama tick. Because to me it’s absolutely irresponsible to know that your product is killing people and not have a warning label on it, like tobacco.”
The star of “Junior” has yet to establish an exact date for when he’ll be filing the lawsuit, but he claims to be discussing it with several private law firms, stating that even if they fail, he hopes it will at least promote further awareness about the effects of climate change.
