Both rely on sound predictions of what the future will bring, these being largely based on what has gone before. Just, though, as you can only make an educated guess at what the housing market will do next year, you cannot be wholly sure how emissions of greenhouse gas will increase in years to come, and exactly how the planet’s climate will then react.

Assuming our ability to link emissions and specific climate change impacts will increase, some of the world’s largest emitters of greenhouse gas may face a litigious and very costly future. In January 2004 Friends of the Earth (FOE) published a report on the ‘Climate footprint’ of perhaps the planet’s largest corporate emitter of greenhouse gas: Exxon [FOE (2004)]. This report fell short of specifying a financial cost of Exxon’s emissions over its 140 year history, and so the total amount any damage claims made against them might run into.
