Teen Skepchick's Reality Checks

Teen Skepchick’s Reality Checks 5.6

The Environmental Justice edition

Teens sue the government for failing to protect the environment for future generations. “Advocates of stringent curbs on greenhouse gas emissions sued the federal government on Wednesday, arguing that key agencies had failed in their duty to protect the earth’s atmosphere as a public trust to be guarded for future generations…Most of the individual plaintiffs in the suit, filed in United States District Court in San Francisco, are teenagers, a decision apparently made to underscore the intergenerational nature of the public trust that the earth’s atmosphere represents. More novel, however, is the suit’s reliance on the public trust doctrine, which dates to Roman times.” (via The New York Times)
