Statement on Second Circuit's Long-Awaited Ruling on Power Plant Nuisance Case

Monday, September 21, 2009
Contact: (415) 703-5837

'This case is a critical milestone, allowing global warming cases to be decided by the courts, just as they decide complex water pollution, air pollution, and toxic dumping cases,' Attorney General Jerry Brown said. “It’s highly significant that the federal court has affirmed the right of states to challenge the greenhouse gas emissions generated by coal-fired power plants. The time has now come for Congress to enact long overdue climate protection legislation.”
