Make Climate Liability Real

Big fossil fuel companies cost New York money, and cost New Yorkers their health. On hot days, municipalities have to pay more to cool buildings because of fossil fuel companies. In big storms, counties have to pay for repair, while people sit in the cold, isolated and without help. We know the changing weather patterns are caused by fossil fuel companies. In floods, sewage takes over the streets, roads are eroded, and people’s homes are filled with mold. After Sandy, people suffered incredible harm, health effects, and difficulty with housing.

All of this costs us our health and costs taxpayers money. The companies responsible for climate change must pay.

We must also continue the important ExxonMobil litigation that the AG’s office is currently pursuing.
