Climate Outloud

“Climate Outloud” is a Series of Discussions about Climate Change

We talk about climate change and what the youths are doing to secure their future on a livable planet.
The youth’s say the federal government has not established reasonable carbon reduction targets.

On October 29, 2018, 21 young people suing the federal government for violating their constitutional right to a safe climate will finally have their day in court.  The date was decided Thursday at a conference in Eugene, Ore., between attorneys for both sides and Magistrate Judge Thomas M. Coffin. The case will be heard by United States District Court Judge Ann Aiken.

This program is currently in partnership with King County Library System, in the “Everybody’s Talking About It” series. “When everybody’s talking about it, we can make a difference.”

We hosted Climate Outloud discussions in 2016 and 2017 in Burien and Renton, with other library venues planned in the future.

This program is Sponsored by Humanities WA, the King County Library Foundation, and the Nature Stewards Program.

To follow the Court Case, look at these articles and press releases.

Juliana v. United States was brought by 21 young plaintiffs who argue that their constitutional and public trust rights are being violated by the government’s creation of climate danger.  The case is one of many related legal actions brought by youth in several states and countries, all supported by Our Children’s Trust, seeking science-based action by governments to stabilize the climate system.
