Children win right to sue US Government on Climate Change Inaction

Kids taking on the US Government

In an interesting story being reported recently, 21 young Americans have taken on the Establishment, and if the stars align and there is any sense of decency, fairness and a great deal of sensibility, then maybe, just maybe this landmark case could help all of us, most notably our children, grandchildren and those that are still yet to inhabit this place we call home.

Yesterday, a lawsuit filed by 21 youth plaintiffs was ruled valid by US District Judge Ann Aiken in Eugene, Oregon. A group of citizens, whose ages range from nine to 20, charged President Obama, the fossil fuel industry, and other federal agencies with violating their constitutional rights by declining to take action against climate change.

Motherboard has the full story, and if you have spare 13 odd minutes, the video below is well worth a look.
