Judge greenlights kids' climate change lawsuit against US govt

Kids may not be able to vote, but they are finding other ways to hold government leaders accountable for their action (or inaction) on climate change . A federal judge in Oregon announced Thursday that an earlier lawsuit filed by 21 youth plaintiffs would be considered valid and proceed in court. The suit names President Barack Obama, the fossil fuel industry, and other federal agencies as defendants, charging that decision makers are violating the constitutional rights of future generations by failing to take adequate action to prevent worsening climate change.
