In a 2-1 decision, the appeals court made several key findings regarding the youthful plaintiffs' standing. It found the kids showed they have indeed been injured by the federal government's policies. And they also held that the plaintiffs' argument that the government's policies are a "substantial factor" in causing the injuries could have been decided at trial. But the majority drew the line at whether a court could give the kids the relief they are seeking.

Thunberg addressed the issue on Saturday.“Some people have been asking who manages this page. First of all, since last spring I only use Facebook to repost what I write on my Twitter and Instagram accounts,” wrote the teen. “Since I have chosen not to be on Facebook personally ( I tried early on but decided it wasn’t for me) I use my father Svantes account to repost content, because you need an account to moderate a Facebook page,” explained Thunberg.
In an op-ed published by the Guardian on January 10, teenage climate kid Greta Thunberg, allegedly speaking along with 20 others, demanded the world abandon all investments in fossil fuel exploration and extraction, “right now.”
“We demand that at this year’s forum, participants from all companies, banks, institutions, and governments immediately halt all investments in fossil fuel exploration and extraction, immediately end all fossil fuel subsidies and immediately and completely divest from fossil fuels,” she wrote, referring to an economic forum to be held in Davos.“We don’t want these things done by 2050, 2030 or even 2021, we want this done now – as in right now,” she added.
