Liability under U.S. and Canadian law - references

University of
British Colombia Logo
A treasure of legal references mainly for U.S. law, but also to some extent for Canadian law is to be found in a May 2011 university paper from the University of British Colombia dealing mainly with a hypothetical strong case as a basis for analyzing the various issues of private climate litigation.

The author says: “Current law seems to suggest that liability is slightly less probable than not, but certainly not inconceivable.”

Complementary thereto, you might wish to read this legal article from the UCLA resuming arguments put forward in the U.S. debate on climate compensation lawsuits.
