Did you know it’s possible to take legal action to fight global warming? In Oregon for instance, some young people won the right to sue their State Government over failed climate action.  European Citizens against their Governments over Climate Change, have been doing just that as well like this Climate lawsuit in Belgium where some Belgian activists and a group of artists got inspired from that action of the American youths to do the same, and sue their Belgian government to increase its climate change program of deeper greenhouse gas emission cuts.  It must be mentioned that it would mean cutting carbon emissions by 40% by 2020, and around 90% by 2050.

In the meantime in Marrakesh, Morocco, the on-going COP22 for all this week will be closing today.
