Julia Olson, Lead Lawyer in Juliana v. U.S.: "This is a Constitutional Case"

Description 

Juliana v. United States, the lawsuit that 21 youth plaintiffs are serving the U.S., "is a constitutional case," says Julia Olson, lead lawyer. The U.S. government's promotion of a fossil fuel energy system, despite knowing that it would lead to the climate crisis we're in today, is in infringement to the young plaintiff's rights to life and security, argues Olson.
