Alongside deportation threats and diminishing civil rights, Trump`s presidency threatens the environmental progress that the US has made over the years. It`s more than inspiring that our youngest generation made history by taking a giant stand and winning the right to sue the government for global warming.
Judge Ann Aiken from the U.S. District ruled in favor for 21 young kids that are fighting a battle against the government and the fossil fuel industry. According to these youngsters (aged from 9 – 20) the government is one of the most active contributors to global warming that threatens the livelihood of this and future generations.
Here is what Judge Aiken had to say and we couldn`t agree more: “Federal courts too often have been cautious and overly deferential in the arena of environmental law, and the world has suffered for it … This lawsuit is not about proving that climate change is happening or that human activity is driving it. For the purposes of this motion, those facts are undisputed.”
This is a historic win over a government that seems to care more about money and industry fuel than the future of this planet and its people. Money won`t matter if we lose our planet!
