We can't expect to win a suit against the oil companies just because WE (our whole civilization) has developed to be completely dependent on fossil fuel to avoid a complete collapse of everything we know and take for granted.
Fossil fuel allowed us.
But on the other hand it could be argued that some of the profits should be allocated toward developing a path to a sustainable future of some sort.
Eventually the tragedy of the commons must end to consider resources to be world heritage commodities to be carefully shared and conserved. We are all stuck together on one planet.
What will they think of us in 200-1,000 years from now? Will they look back and hate us for totally blowing through our one time primordial gift in a near total waste?
