We unpack the news that twenty companies are responsible for one third of carbon pollution, and see how this relates to carbon budgets and ongoing liability lawsuits.
The reading list:
- The Guardian reports that 20 corporations are responsible for 1/3 of pollution
- Infographic showing similar carbon budget info as quoted in the show.
- DeSmogBlog reports on AG Healy's lawsuit against Exxon
- ClimateLiabilityNews update on the NY trial of Exxon
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
