Skip to comments.An Inconvenient Lawsuit: Teenagers Take Global Warming to the Courts
Posted on 05/12/2012 11:23:30 AM PDT by Twotone
Alec Loorz turns 18 at the end of this month. While finishing high school and playing Ultimate Frisbee on weekends, he's also suing the federal government in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C.
The Ventura, California, teen and four other juvenile plaintiffs want government officials to do more to prevent the risks of climate change -- the dangerous storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, and food-supply disruptions that scientists warn will threaten their generation absent a major turnabout in global energy policy. Specifically, the students are demanding that the U.S. government start reducing national emissions of carbon dioxide by at least six percent per year beginning in 2013.

He watched Algore's propaganda film twice in one sitting and now he's a 17 year old "expert". Geeesh. Get a life boy!
Academia. Promoter of the radical Left.
If I had to raise my kids again, they would NEVER set foot in a government “school”. They would be home schooled and have a superior education by age 18. And they would not be liberal zombies like this poor kid who was betrayed by his parents....
Agreed. These morons are worried about food disruption and demand a decrease in CO2 levels. Guess they missed the part in science class about photosynthesis? Paging Occupy Wall Street, we have a pick up ready for 2 new volunteers.
prevent dangerous storms, heat waves, rising sea levels, and food-supply disruptions
this kid lives in a bubble
‘Alec Loorz turns 18 at the end of this month.’
And knows all things.
Talk about “Heads full of Mush!”
What a bunch of loons! Critical thinking here? Nah!!
And he still hasn't passed puberty.
Wow, isn't it amazing that those four kids raised enough money to hire a law firm to represent them in a federal lawsuit?
It's so inspiring that they worked so hard to raise that money for what they believe in. Rather than, for example, being used as mere useful idiot political fronts for wealthy socialist interests that would be paying the law firm to try to undermine freedom in America. Now THAT would be disgusting.
Any kid who watches the Weather Channel (run by NBC) may well have exactly the same views.
They constantly spew the doctrine of global warming.
What is the optimum climate? When was the climate NOT changing?
You have to be able to answer these questions to be taken seriously.
Does the judge have access to some sort of an S/M store or something where he could buy a paddle?
They don’t have standing. They can’t show they’ve been harmed because what they are concerned about, even if certain (and obviously predictions aren’t), hasn’t happened and caused them measurable harm.
That’s the argument that was used to deny standing to many of the suits against BHO’s eligibility. That was specious, because the harm of an unauthorized government is obvious, if unquantifiable. So, this one should be slapped down immediately.
Of course, that presumes a defense. If they are suing the US government, and Holder is charged with defending it, he might just roll over instead of defending the suit.
Born to be a narcissist.
But this kid is just another puppet. George Soros is in the background somewhere.
He needs the $$$ from the lawsuit to go pro in Ultimate Frisbee. He couldn't get a job, so he decided to sue!!
We need to sue his parents for RAISING a MORON!!
Apologies to Joe Walsh
I’ll take these kids seriously when they give up their smart phones and computers.
