Trump administration now sued by 21 kids on climate change citing Constitutional rights!

The federal government under the Obama administration, along with fossil fuel companies, requested dismissal of the case, but a federal district court judge in Oregon ruled last fall that the case could proceed. Now, Juliana v. United States could go to trial as early as this year, possibly proving to be a check against the Trump administration’s pro-fossil fuel agenda.

Aji Piper, 16-year-old plaintiff from Seattle, said in a statement:

“I am hopeful that our case will reverse or prevent all damage our current president may inflict. I hope that our trial may shed light upon the issue of climate change, and educate the American populace on the difference between real and ‘alternative’ facts.”
