El abogado Stephen Susman ayudó a presentar una demanda a principios de este año en nombre de 400 nativos del pueblo esquimal Inupiat que viven en Kivalina en el norte de Alaska.

La demanda acusa a 20 compañías de petroleo, gas y electricidad –entre las que se incluyen ExxonMobil, Chevron, BP, ConocoPhillips y Peabody– de ser responsables de emitir millones de toneladas de gases de efecto invernadero, provocando así que se derrita el hielo del Ártico.
