Under TPP, International corporations will be able to sue your national government if it tries to protect the environment

TPP agreement slammed as 'betrayal' of environment, boon for fossil fuels : Renew Economy: "“The TPP is a ticking time-bomb for climate policy,” said Friends of the Earth International Economic Justice Coordinator, Sam Cossar-Gilbert, “because it further cements the unfair… mechanism that enables foreign corporations to sue governments for protecting the environment.

“Many government policies needed to address global warming will be subject to suits brought before biased, not transparent and undemocratic international investment tribunals.”"
