U.S. Court of Appeals to Deliberate Youth’s Climate Change Case on May 2, 2014

Youth Demand Court Order Climate Recovery Plan Based On Public Trust Doctrine

Our Children’s Trust is arguing in the US Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia that the federal government be required by the court to implement a comprehensive Climate Recovery Plan. The youth are appealing the district court’s dismissal of their “Atmospheric Trust” case, continuing their fight to protect their climate and their fundamental constitutional rights as young U.S. citizens….

This lawsuit relies upon the long-established legal principle of the Public Trust Doctrine, which requires our government to protect and maintain survival resources for future generations. At oral argument on May 2, 2014, youth will ask the U.S. Court of Appeals to recognize their constitutional right to a healthy atmosphere and stable climate system.
