Kelsey Juliana: Will Children Save the Environment?
Kelsey Juliana and 20 other youths ranging in age from 10 to 22 filed Juliana vs. U.S.—also known as Our Children’s Trust Lawsuit—in the U.S. District Court for the District of Oregon in 2015. Their complaint asserts that because our government’s deliberative actions and inactions have caused excessive CO2 levels, it has violated the youngest generation’s constitutiononal rights to life, liberty, and property. The government has failed to protect essential public trust resources. After many attempts by the administration to dismiss and delay the case, the trial is set for Oct. 29, 2018.
