About this product
- DescriptionWhile corporate-funded scientists continue their effort to spread doubt about global warming, for one Native American village in Alaska, the price of further denial could be the complete devastation of their homes and culture. In 2008, the city of Kivalina and a federally recognised tribe, the Alaska Native village of Kivalina, tried to sue Exxon Mobil Corporation, eight other oil companies, 14 power companies and one coal company for the cost of relocation (estimated at GBP400 million). The suit was dismissed. Christine Shearer here tells its powerful and tragic story.
