In an historic decision, a King County judge ruled the State of Washington was failing in it’s duty to address climate change.
Judge Hill said:
The reason I’m doing this is because this is an urgent situation. (…) These children can’t wait, the polar bears can’t wait, the people of Bangladesh can’t wait. I don’t have jurisdiction over their needs in this matter, but I do have jurisdiction in this court, and for that reason I’m taking this action.
