Langdell Hall; 225 Vorenberg Classroom - North

Years of reporting show that fossil fuel companies like ExxonMobil, Chevron, Shell, and BP knew their business model was generating, in their own words, “catastrophic” climate change. Instead of alerting the public about this existential threat, these companies funded multi-million dollar disinformation campaigns to block responses that would curb their dangerous but highly-profitable conduct. They made trillions of dollars from their deception, while people, communities, and nations around the world pay an increasingly devastating price. Could these acts constitute criminal violations? Should Big Oil be prosecuted?

Join legal experts, practitioners, and activists for a panel discussion of these timely questions of climate accountability.
