When companies sell products which create excessive carbon dioxide, they are destroying our environment. Climate change is a global problem, and environmental damage must be both repaired and paid for. Since the damage these companies inflict is global, they can and should be sued. The cost of burning fossil fuels must also include the damage done to the environment. This would be a humanity-backed class action lawsuit, which means anyone can sue that company for environmental damage.Please sign the petition below, saying you agree with suing oil, gas, and coal companies for the excessive greenhouse gases they cause due to the sale of their products. Lets force the bursting of the carbon bubble through legal action which will force the governments of the world to phase out Fossil fuels and instate clean energy. Climate change is the greatest threat to our economy! It must stop! The boom and bust cycles caused by the carbon economy is a threat to our economy. We need a stable clean energy economy which is void of boom and bust cycles.
