Eco-Migration

As global powers continue to emit greenhouse gases and our planet continues to warm, water levels will continue to rise, fires will continue to burn, crops wither in fields, and humans desperate for a place to live and food to eat will continue to be forced from their homes. Raya Salter and Dan Galpern join Paul Beckwith and Regina Valdez to discuss eco-migration.

#DanGalpern, Counsel to Climate Protection & Restoration Initiative and John Fitzgerald, Counsel for #Methane Action and Energy and Climate Justice Attorney Raya Salter explore the ways that litigation can lead to effective actions, like carbon fees.

COP Compliance & The Rule of Law

Legal challenges increase commitments, promote collaboration and force compliance using the rule of law, including existing international law, US law and litigation.

National commitments for climate action are essential, yet COP negotiations have led to empty promises. Urgent international collaboration is needed to equitably implement climate solutions. Please sign the petition to President Biden on carbon fees to phase out dangerous GHG emissions.

CPR Initiative has also petitioned the EPA to compel oil, gas and coal companies to clean up their mess by removing excess “legacy” carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) in the air – or else pay into a carbon removal fund to ensure that happens.

Suing the B@stards

On today’s program we have with us attorneys Dan Galpern and Sarah Mead over-viewing for us the opportunities for taking action on climate change by bringing both corporations and governments to court. Please share this program with any attorneys you know, especially the ones who have children. They would be the most likely to take such legal actions since it is their children’s world that is being stolen from them by a destructive alliance of politics and money.

Making the Carbon Majors Pay for Climate Action

Dr. James Hansen and his legal advisor, Daniel Galpern, Esq., discuss making the fossil fuel companies, the ‘Carbon Majors’, pay for the damage they have done to society, not only in terms of climate change and all of its impacts, but also health impacts. This Climate Matters show, videotaped at COP-23 in Bonn, Germany, furthers the idea that the polluters must pay for the damage their pollution causes.
