Chevron Corp reported on Monday, “A California federal court dismissed climate change lawsuits against five oil companies by the cities of San Francisco and Oakland, saying the complaints required foreign and domestic policy decisions that were outside the purview of courts”.

The situation arose by the complainants are real and worldwide, and that both parties accepted the scenario behind all the circumstances is only global warming, Judge William Alsup of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California presented in the ruling.

BP did not have an immediate comment, while ConocoPhillips and Exxon Mobil were not available for comment outside regular business hours.
