Just two weeks ago, San Francisco and Oakland filed lawsuits against BP, Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil and Royal Dutch Shell. The lawsuits allege that these oil companies have created a costly public nuisance by producing and selling fossil fuels that are the main cause of climate change.
The plaintiffs argue these companies are saddling the cities with enormous expenses relating to sea level rise and other consequences of climate change.
While the oil companies deserve to be held accountable, they are not the only corporations responsible for the ravages of climate change. Many seemingly socially responsible companies are complicit via their funding of one of the leading opponents of action on climate change: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
One of these companies is an iconic San Francisco-based brand: Gap.
Gap has become an enemy of the radical left.
