Ann Carlson Talks to Sierra about Federal Court Decisions Favoring Big Oil

Professor Ann Carlson was quoted in Sierra on a federal court decision favoring big oil companies in light of Baltimore filing a lawsuit seeking to recover damages from some of the largest corporations fueling global warming.
“For 50 years, these companies have known their products would cause rising seas and other climate change-related problems facing Baltimore today, they could have warned us. They could have taken steps to minimize or avoid the damage. In fact, they had a responsibility to do both, but they didn’t, and that’s why we are taking them to court.”
 
Carlson was also quoted in a Climate Liability News article regarding a Federal Judge dismissing a New York City climate suit.
