Checking in with the Juliana youth plaintiffs today. People vs. Fossil Fuels and many other leading climate organizations are circulating a petition demanding that the Attorney General drop its opposition to trial for the Juliana plaintiffs. After seven years of litigation, the plaintiffs are still fighting to have their petition heard in federal court. They continue to pursue their right to present evidence in support of their claims that the federal government has knowingly taken affirmative actions that cause climate change.
Watch video where youth plaintiff Isaac V. explains the petition.
