Devil’s Advocate: Boulder Climate Lawsuit
Last week, Western Wire Managing Editor Michael Sandoval joined Jon Caldara, President of the Denver-based Independence Institute, a free market think tank, to discuss the possible climate lawsuit being explored by the City of Boulder, Colorado.
Following an open records request filed by Western Wire, documents revealed the City Attorney’s Office was planning to “send out a confidential memo with updated information regarding potential costs and risk” of a climate lawsuit. Michael shares other findings made in the document search, and provides an update on where the possible lawsuit stands.
This revelation comes on the heels of a lawsuit and divestment effort against oil and gas producers launched by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio that he said he hoped would “bring the death knell to this industry.”
