Summary: 

In what could be climate justice's first legal case to proceed to the circuit courts, the plaintiffs are using the same  argument that worked against the tobacco companies, conspiring to spread false scientific information, against some of the nation’s largest producers of oil, gas, and electric power.  The Native Alaskan Community Kivalina is built on melting permafrost and its 400 members and 107 buildings have to be relocated, at a cost of $95-400 million. The fact that the case has proceeded so far is yet another validation that that CSR factors — E, S and G — are inextricably linked.
