“Dubbed the the legal action was filed by 10 families, most from European countries but one from as far away as Fiji. The families argue that the EU’s current target to reduce carbon emissions 40 percent below 1990 levels by 2030 is not enough to protect their rights to life, health, occupation, and property“
We are expected of course to believe that 10 families spontaneously decided to bring “climate” actions.)

“In 2015, as part of the Paris Agreement, countries agreed to pursue efforts to limit temperature rise to 1.5°C. Yet, it is clear that the existing EU 2030 climate target is not enough to respect the commitments taken in the Paris Agreement and should be increased,” Wendel Trio, director of Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe, which is supporting the plaintiffs’ case. In addition to CAN, several other organizations are assisting.
The German group Protect the Planet has agreed to take on plaintiffs’ legal costs and the “scientific think tank” Climate Analytics is providing scientific background to the case.
