Friederike Otto interview: Can we sue oil giants for extreme weather?

We can now rapidly and reliably link heatwaves, droughts and hurricanes to human-induced global warming, says climate scientist Friederike Otto. The science could soon be used as evidence in legal cases brought against fossil fuel companies.

Friederike Otto is interviewed by New Scientist about her work on rapid-response studies that estimate how much more probable any given “natural” disaster was made by human-caused global warming.
