12:30pm – 1:20pm EST
Session Produced By:Pay Up Climate Polluters NJ
This session is produced by Pay Up Climate Polluters NJ and is open to all conference delegates. Across the country, 23 municipalities and states have filed suit against Big Oil & Gas for deceiving the public and policymakers about the dangerous climate impacts their products would knowingly cause. As budgets face increasing pressure during the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that already-vulnerable communities do not continue to pay for climate damages on their own. Learn about climate liability litigation as a growing trend and a powerful tool that NJ communities can use to hold polluters accountable, and recover increasing climate change resilience costs.
