- Marin, San Mateo County sue big oil over climate change
By Kurtis Alexander - Monday Jul 17, 2017
Two Bay Area counties and a Southern California city concerned about rising sea levels sued 37 of the world’s biggest oil and coal companies Monday, claiming the fossil fuel giants are literally putting them under water and should pay for the damage.Lawyers for the three communities worked together to make the case that greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel development are directly tied to the climate-related problems facing coastal areas, from more frequent flooding and beach erosion to the possibility that water will inundate roads, airports, sewage treatment plants and other real estate.The two Bay Area counties and Imperial Beach are seeking to show that the energy companies have created a public nuisance — legally, something that causes widespread harm.The suit claims that energy company executives knew for nearly 50 years that fossil fuel development was warming the planet, but consistently denied it and sought to discredit scientific findings that human activity was heating Earth’s atmosphere.A 2008 lawsuit filed by the small Alaskan village of Kivalina claimed that about two dozen energy companies not only created a public nuisance by causing coastal flooding but also worked together to hide the effects of greenhouse gas emissions.The case was tossed, with a federal appeals court determining that the federal Clean Air Act should govern greenhouse gases, not public nuisance doctrine.“The environmental harm these companies knowingly caused to our precious shorelines, and the entire world, and their deliberate efforts to conceal those frightening truths, jeopardizes the public’s health and places the financial burden of those consequences on the taxpayers,” San Mateo County Supervisor Don Horsley said in a statement.
