US environmental groups fight oil industry

Coalition known as the Green Army files lawsuit seeking redress over pollution caused by oil firms.

In the US state of Louisiana, a coalition of environmental groups is accusing the oil industry of continuing to pollute their state.

The coalition, known as the Green Army, hopes its lawsuit will hold big industry accountable.

The governor and and oil industry supporters in the state’s legislature are pushing back, drafting legislation that would stop such lawsuits.
