New Hampshire Rejects CCI-Sponsored Climate Litigation Resolution
Earlier this month, the New Hampshire House of Representatives voted against a measure that would have encouraged state leaders to sue American energy companies over climate change damages. The effort appears to have been coordinated by the Center for Climate Integrity, the activist group working behind (and in front of) the scenes to drive similar litigation across the country.
