Court strikes down youth climate lawsuit on Biden administration request

A federal appeals court on Wednesday evening granted the Biden administration’s request to strike down a landmark federal youth climate case, outraging climate advocates. “This is a tragic and unjust ruling,” said Julia Olson, attorney and founder of Our Children’s Trust, the non-profit law firm that brought the suit. The lawsuit, Juliana v United States, was filed by 21 young people from Oregon who alleged the federal government’s role in fueling the climate crisis violates their constitutional rights.

      Denying these youth their day in court undermines the urgency of addressing climate change and protecting the fundamental rights of all people, present and future.

        This is so wrong.. advocates should be protected by the law and not turned down for standing for what is right for everyone.

            This decision is a slap in the face to the young plaintiffs who bravely stood up to hold the government accountable for its role in the climate crisis.

              Global leaders should play a key role in promoting climate change.
