Recent reports have shown that California knew about the threat of climate change decades ago.

No one could have missed the testimony of James Hansen in 1988 and many excellent papers were published prior to that time (and, of course, subsequently). Californian policymakers cannot claim ignorance.

I’m not a resident of California but I often visit this great state and seeing this new petition I’m hoping that everyone concerned about the climate of California will get onboard to denounce the past and current state governments and, especially, to ensure that current residents get to sue these politicians.

They knew, and yet they kept burning fossil fuel. History will judge them harshly, but in the meantime, the people should ensure these politicians feel the pain.
