Climate Accountability Webinar Series, Part 3: Sharing the Burden: Determination of Fossil Fuel Companies' Fair Shares

  • Monday, November 16, 2020
  • 12:00 pm — 2:00 pm
  • Zoom

With fossil fuel companies being sued for their contribution to climate change, is Chevron really on the hook for 100% of climate costs when clearly we all contribute? Climate damages litigants need to advance a theory about who has done enough to cause climate change that they could be sued and how those costs should be shared among defendants. What is the role of “contributory negligence”? How should potential government plaintiffs respond to accusations of “climate hypocrisy”?

Join us for the third of four webinars on Climate Accountability Litigation by Governments Against Fossil Fuel Companies: Exploring the Options.

The webinar series is a joint initiative between the Centre for Law and the Environment (CLE) of the UBC Allard School of Law, University of Victoria Faculty of Law, Thompson Rivers University Faculty of Law, and West Coast Environmental Law.

We will be joined by the following panelists:

  • Dr. Benjamin Franta, Stanford Law 
  • Andrew Gage, West Coast Environmental Law
  • Dr. Robert Gifford, University of Victoria
  • Rick Heede, Climate Accountability Institution (Invited)
