Can litigation solve climate change? No, but it can help galvanize public support and goad the sluggish political process into action before it’s too late. It can also draw attention to the plight of those most at risk––from the Inuit of Alaska to the Bengali of Bangladesh––and provide access to justice for victims that are already suffering the effects of the industrialized world’s destruction of the biosphere.
