Chief Justice John Roberts ordered a stay recently of a “landmark” trial in the federal lawsuit against the United States and various executive agencies, filed on behalf of 21 children “and future generations.” Juliana v. United States alleges violations of the children’s fundamental right to “a climate system capable of sustaining human life.” Acting as the guardian for the minor plaintiffs is James Hansen, the climate change equivalent of Patient Zero in the pandemic of terror over global warming.
The organization that initiated this particular example of lawfare is Our Children’s Trust. OCT claims to provide a voice for youth in its mission to “protect earth’s atmosphere,” preferably through “legally binding, science-based” climate recovery policies. Juliana illustrates OCT’s idea of legally binding controls over American energy policy: the plaintiffs are requesting a court order directing the U.S. government to “cease [its] permitting, authorizing, and subsidizing of fossil fuels and, instead, move to swiftly phase out CO2 emissions.”
