21 young people bring climate change lawsuit

Our friends at Culture Change tipped us off about this story. In a complaint filed in United States District Court, District of Oregon, 21 young people (an auspicious number!), along with “FUTURE GENERATIONS, through their guardian Dr. James Hansen”, bring suit over the government’s inaction (and worse, their active encouragement of the fossil carbon industry) in the face of climate change.

So, here’s a suggested small and timely action for the 21st of this month: write a short letter to your local newspaper bringing this story to their readers’ attention.
