A federal appeals court on Wednesday rejected the U.S. government's bid to halt a lawsuit by young people claiming that President Donald Trump and his administration are violating their constitutional rights by ignoring the harms caused by climate change.
By a 3-0 vote, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco said the administration had not met the "high bar" under federal law to dismiss the Oregon lawsuit, which was originally brought in 2015 against the administration of President Barack Obama.

Oh geez. You have to be kidding me. Next will be suing the gov’t for not protecting them from guns.
Someone please think up a case for conservative kids to bring.. I dont know, something like the debt that they will owe forever?
But no issues in letting in and supporting millions of illegals?
“They said this has deprived them of their due process rights to life, liberty and property, including to live in a habitable climate.”
Do they really want climate science in court? Very bad tactical move.
Completely ignore the communist left court. we will soon be changing the court to an American court.
The 9th circus - no one considers that a real court.
The court in the city with the poop zones maps?!
Now this needs to be brought to an en banc sessions; though it still might be approved that way.
9th circus and 3 of em at that. It could end up a good thing since the whole premise is based on BS, a real case could allow actual dissenting opinion a real hearing.
Yet it never seems to change...
A liberal judicial advocacy group contends federal prosecutor Ryan Bounds Court nominee is unfit and not crazy enough to fill a judge’s vacancy with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals,
They are terrified that the liberal lunatic lunacy of the 9th circus will be changed with sanity.
The “Scientists” can’t get to the truth.
How are the clowns of the 9th Circus going to do better?
Anyone else tired of these Obama Judicial Dictators?
I want to know how these obnoxious little brats have “standing” in the eyes of the court but an Army officer didn’t have any such standing when challenging obama.
Exactly. Does poop on a hot sidewalk contribute to carbon emissions? Maybe we could sue the people that do not clean it up for “Climate Change!”
At the very least, a $700,000 study is in order. Any takers?
I’m gonna sue my neighbor, his grass
is not as green as mine is. I think
his yard is suffering from yardal
warming. It’s got to be due to all
that barbeque activity.
Part of it is that Congress are too lazy and scared of taking responsible action through real legislation.
Congress is every bit as responsible for this travesty as the Judiciary.
Now the Democrats are exploiting the children. More slaves for their cause
Wow. Who knew you could sue the federal government for *not* making the policy decisions *you* want them to make!
As many others have pointed out, I guess this means people can sue the government for *not* providing equal housing for all!
For not insuring that all are born with the same skin tone!
For not insuring that lemonade springs from the mountains!
For not insuring that homicide and rape never occur!
For not insuring that no one ever gets sick!
This is an imbecilic law suit. It strikes at the very notion of reality, limited government, and the rule of law.
