Mt. Edgecumbe senior sues AK over climate change
Kanuk is one of six Alaska youth being represented in court by the organization Our Children’s Trust. The Oregon-based nonprofit filed lawsuits on behalf of young plaintiffs in nine states. A separate suit is pending against the federal government, and there are a few international cases, too. The lawsuits ask their respective governments to consider the atmosphere a public trust, and to exercise their duty to protect it.
Our Children’s Trust wants Alaska to encourage a 6 percent annual reduction in carbon dioxide beginning next year.
