HOW THE ROCKEFELLERS MANUFACTURED THE CLIMATE LIABILITY CAMPAIGN



Pay Up Climate Polluters is a public relations initiative by the Institute for Governance and Sustainable Development’s (IGSD) Center for Climate Integrity (CCI). The initiative is putting up billboards, signing amicus briefs, hosting events with the plaintiffs’ attorneys, and even lobbying government officials to pursue litigation against energy companies. The organization even launched a report which claims to calculate the cost of sea level rise in cities across the country.
