PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A federal appeals court has given the green light to a lawsuit filed by young activists who say the U.S. government is failing to protect them from climate change.
The lawsuit asserts the government has known for decades that carbon pollution causes climate change but has failed to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
A three-judge panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Wednesday rejected the government's request for an order directing a lower court to dismiss the case.
