Estonian court halts oil shale plant in groundbreaking ruling

Estonia's first climate lawsuit has resulted in the postponement of a new oil shale facility's planned launch next year.
If the facility is permanently halted, an emissions increase equivalent to one-tenth of the country's current emissions will not occur. This has been confirmed following the ruling by Estonia's highest administrative court on October 11th.
The Supreme Court emphasized that the legislature must decide on the constitutional obligation to limit greenhouse gas emissions based on the best available scientific information and Estonia's international obligations.Β 
Estonia’s supreme court has ordered the state energy company Eesti Energia to halt construction on a new shale oil facility.

                    This is a positive step towards addressing climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. It sets an important precedent for holding polluting industries accountable for their impact on the environment.

                      This is the way to go , its a great precedence for other courts to refer and be part of the solution.
