Esmeralda Colombo held a presentation for Bergen Energy Lab on the 9th of May 2017. She currently pursues a PhD at the Faculty of Law at the University of Bergen about climate change related law.

Esmeralda presented several lawsuits raised in different nations about climate injustice, mostly due to lack of action on a state level. She explained the background and impacts of these lawsuits, and ended her talk with a discussion on whether natural gas is a reasonable bridge fuel on our way to a sustainable energy system.
