    Exactly which of their constitutional rights are being violated? Despite protestations to the contrary, "climate change" is far from settled science, but even if it was etched in stone, I don't recall seeing anything in the U.S. Constitution referencing the weather. Or are we going to tug on the commerce clause once again? It seems to have worked once...

    They want to sue the gov't for not doing enough to deal with a problem. If this were possible, it would open the door to all kinds of law suits. By that thinking, someone could sue the gov't for the effects of the drug war or for creating an underclass by looking the other way from illegal immigration. How about the invasion of Iraq. They avoided introducing the product in Aug, but it turned out to be defective. Could we sue, or is it caveat emptor?

    I wonder if there's some way to do a class action law suit of everyone with kids and grandkids against everyone. We burn $1000 worth natural gas each winter but don't pay for the costs of the resulting climate change that will be born mostly by future generations. The courts don't seem like the way to deal with this.

    Grandstanders after their 15 minutes of fame.

    You can only sue the government if the government allows it.

    Their suit is frivolous by definition, since there are no delineated rights in the Constitution that apply to "global climate change". Additionally minors cannot directly sue for anything other than emancipation. A guardian, or someone legally able to act for them would have to file suit. Hence the non-profit in the article doing the filing.

    After all they gave up on global warming when it became know temps have not risen. The only reason their law suit will be able to advance through the courts is with the blessing of the administration.

    If they make a useful trojan horse, the suit will proceed. If not it will disappear like honesty in politics.

    Those young people, or the agitators behind them, should read this:

    All, electric power went off in Dubai, a day in June 2005.

    That is what the green/environmental movement want for the rest of us.
    No aircon, water, toilets, elevators, traffic lights,
    no working petrol and gas pumps,
    no hot food, coffee, tea, lighting, ATM, credit card payments ..
