You will be reading a lot of information in the news as the “Climate Change Kids” won their “game-changer” lawsuit as a judge ruled in their favor (today) concerning the use of fossil fuels and more in the state of MT. Much of the suit was based on emotion rather than accurate and true science.
But before you delve in please read (Click here) the article published by Montana 1st News this past June and make sure to listen to the video clips as they reveal the difference between “federal control” and “free enterprise”.
“The judge who heard the US’s first constitutional climate trial earlier this year has ruled in favor of a group of young plaintiffs who had accused state officials in Montana of violating their right to a healthy environment.
“I’m so speechless right now,” Eva, a plaintiff who was 14 when the suit was filed, said in a statement. “I’m really just excited and elated and thrilled.”
The challengers’ lawyers described the first-of-its-kind ruling as a “game-changer” and a “sweeping win” which campaigners hope will give a boost to similar cases tackling the climate crisis.
In a case that made headlines around the US and internationally, 16 plaintiffs, aged five to 22, had alleged the state government’s pro-fossil fuel policies contributed to climate change.”
