Boulder Youths Sue Colorado For Global Warming
10-year-old Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, 11-year-old Haiden Inskeep and 18-year-old Cecelia Kluding-Rodriguez are joined by WildEarth Guardians, an environmental activist and protection organization of which Martinez is a member, to sue the state as a concerted effort to establish the “atmosphere as a public trust resource” and for damages due to health issues that have surface for the three youths due to a failure to protect the natural environment, according the lawsuit filed by their attorneys.
Roske-Martinez says that part of the reason she is so vested in environmental causes is that she had friends who lost their homes in the Fourmile Canyon Fire, the most destructive fire in Colorado history.
Apparently Colorado never had fires before people started building their suburban homes in the middle of the forest.
I hope these kids can survive the heat. It is 38F (3C) in Boulder this afternoon.
