Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh announced the lawsuit Friday in joining about a dozen other cities and states in suing fossil fuel firms for their role in causing global warming. …
The lawsuit, filed in the Circuit Court of Baltimore, targets many of the energy firms that dot the landscape around Charm City. Most notably, Consol Energy’s coal export terminal, the only one like it on the East Coast, that handles much of the U.S. coal industry’s shipments abroad.
The lawsuit also targets oil giants BP, Marathon, Chevron, Exxon, ConocoPhillips, Citgo, and many others.
