What’s ‘Public Nuisance’ Really Mean? Get Caught Up in 90 Seconds

Today, the Manufacturers’ Accountability Project (MAP) released a short, 90-second video that breaks down public nuisance law and demonstrates why it has no relation to complex global public policy matters like climate change. In the video, MAP Special Counsel Phil Goldberg discusses the foundations of public nuisance theory, noting how attorneys and local governments filing litigation against energy manufacturers are trying to cast these principles aside to cash in on this social problem. Innovation, not litigation, Goldberg concludes is the only way to solve climate change.
