Climate Law Champions Are Battling The Fossil Fuel Industry In Court

Keely Boom

In a growing number of climate-related legal actions, concerned citizens are targeting the Carbon Majors, the world’s largest fossil fuel corporations responsible for two thirds of the human-made carbon emissions in the atmosphere today.

These corporations have made massive profits while outsourcing the true cost of their product upon the poor who are paying with their lives, their homes, and their ability to grow food, as they begin to deal with the impacts that 1˚C of warming is already inflicting on them.

"The Paris Agreement is also silent on the liability of private actors, such as fossil fuel companies."

Then legions of boiler room paid message promoters go to work insisting that the real culpability lies with anyone who eats meat or drives a car. Propping up the "individual choice/responsibility" banner, they also work 24/7 to HIDE the real actors, agents, and authors of policy who are positioned to do much to counter the problems of global warming but instead, protect the OIL/Gas/Coal consortium.
