A Hopeful and Unusual Environmental Story

"Exercising my 'reasoned judgement,' I have no doubt that the right to a climate system capable of sustaining human life is fundamental to a free and ordered society."

U.S. District Judge Ann Aiken.

Judge Aiken then ruled against the U.S. government allowing the landmark case of Juliana v U.S. to continue despite the U.S.'s and the fossil fuel industry's determination to kill it.

What is this case?

(Story continues from "Read More")

Filed in 2015 the case and its plaintiffs, 21-children, claim the U.S. government thru its massive support of the fossil fuel industry is causing 25% of the world's greenhouse gasses.

The result is catastrophic climate change, and that the children's rights to life, liberty and property is being destroyed along with the environment.

This case could go to the U.S. Supreme Court, and if the children prevail, will require fossil fuel use in the U.S. to be eliminated by mid-century or sooner.

This case is not just an indictment of the Trump Administration.

It revealed that each U.S. President since Lyndon Johnson in 1965 has known of the greenhouse gas threat to the environment and not one of them took bold action to stop it.

And despite President Trump being a climate denier, his Administration in responding to this case has acknowledged greenhouse gasses and global warming are real.

At long last, the environment is having its day in court, and if the children prevail, the results could be revolutionary, affecting every aspect of how we live and function.
