The suit was celebrated by environmental groups and activists.
Union of Concerned Scientists president Ken Kimmell pointed out that “communities in Colorado and across the country are already doing what they can to curb their carbon emissions and are spending millions of dollars to adapt to a wide array of harms caused by global warming.”
“We need to shift the costs back to these companies that have profited off their demands for unabated pollution in the face of global climate destabilization,” said Micah Parkin of 350 Colorado.
Rebecca Dickson, chair of a local Sierra Club group, called for “a cultural shift.”
“The fossil fuel industry has normalized oil and gas in our lives while concealing the dangers,” Dickson said. “In the future, when we talk about ‘energy,’ we should be referring to renewable energy, not fossil fuels.”
