A sensible editorial from the TC today.
Local governments in B.C. have to bring climate change into their long-term planning, but suing fossil-fuel companies to recover costs would be a waste of time and money...Fighting Big Oil would be many times harder [than the Tobacco Litigation], not only because of its immense resources but because just about everyone in the world is complicit in the use of fossil fuels. Assessing responsibility would be a moral and legal nightmare. Some battles are worth fighting, no matter how difficult. This one isn’t.
