"The cities of San Francisco and Oakland are suing some of the world’s largest oil companies over climate change, joining an emerging legal effort to hold the fossil fuel industry accountable for the damages wrought by rising seas.

The suits, filed separately Tuesday in Superior Court in San Francisco and Alameda County, claim that a slate of oil, gas and coal producers not only caused the heat-trapping gases that drove sea-level rise but knowingly did so, a challenge akin to litigation against big tobacco companies in the 1990s.

Both cities are asking the oil companies, which include Bay Area-based Chevron, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, Shell and BP, to pay billions in compensation for past and future flooding, coastal erosion and property damage resulting from climate change."

Give Me Shelter: How the Bay Area is Tackling Its Housing Crisis
Tuesday, October 10, 2017, 5:45pm
The Commonwealth Club, 110 The Embarcadero

Join us on Tuesday, October 10 for "Give Me Shelter: How the Bay Area is Tackling Its Housing Crisis," a conversation about the ways in which the region is advocating, innovating and building in order to keep Bay Area residents in their homes.

In the past five years, Bay Area home prices have surged by an astounding average of 72 percent. Now, more than 1.5 million local households pay over half of their income in rent, and even six-figures is considered low income in certain parts of the Bay Area. For the first time, the public, private, nonprofit and philanthropic sectors are working together on creative solutions to produce and preserve affordable homes for all residents.

Hear from a panel of influential local leaders who are working to ensure that people of all backgrounds can continue to call the Bay Area home.
