New carbon bills won't let oil companies off the hook for climate costs
from Climate Liability News
Members of Congress recently introduced three new carbon pricing bills aimed at curbing planet-warming emissions. While the bills vary in their policy details, none explicitly absolve the fossil fuel industry of potential tort liability in climate lawsuits brought by municipalities, unlike another recent plan supported by the fossil fuel industry. One of the new proposals even expressly preserves the use of state law nuisance claims like the ones in these suits.
