apr 10, 2015 - Los Angeles is Sued for Drilling Oil Without Proper Environmental Review
The Youth for Environmental Justice, among other groups, sues the city of Los Angeles on the grounds that they permitted drilling without performing the required environmental checks. This is an example of one of many negative events that were caused by the use of fossil fuels. Stakeholders in this event are people who lived in the neighborhoods affected by the pollution caused by the drilling. They hold the view that using fossil fuels is not a viable option for governments and that they should switch to renewable energy in order to preserve the environment and people's health.
