Summary

Forest fires, droughts, and landslides are natural events, but the frequency and severity are increasing drastically due to climate change. Right now, communities are being forced to foot the bill, but that’s not fair. We are reclaiming the legal power to hold the fossil fuel industry accountable in partnership with West Coast Environmental Law.

Holding Fossil Fuel Companies Accountable

EcoSociety has partnered with West Coast Environmental Law to support Kootenay communities to holding fossil fuel companies accountable for climate impacts. Similar to tobacco and now opioid companies, major fossil fuel corporations have spent billions of dollars spreading misinformation about the negative impacts caused by the use of their products.

All of our communities are being directly impacted by the effects of climate change. Forest fires, droughts, and landslides are natural events, but the frequency and severity are increasing drastically due to climate change. Right now, communities are being forced to foot the bill, but that’s not fair. We are reclaiming the legal power to hold the fossil fuel industry accountable.

As a result of this partnership, climate accountability letters have been sent from the West Kootenay municipalities of Slocan, Castlegar, Rossland, and others coming soon.
