Environment Montana is thrilled to partner with the Sierra Club and Mom's Clean Air Force to host Nathan Baring, one of 21 youth plaintiffs suing the U.S. government over climate change, in Missoula this week!
Baring will be speaking at Missoula's Roxy Theater on Feb. 1, 2018 at 3:30 pm. The historic case in which he is a plaintiff, Juliana v. U.S., has been moving through the federal court system and is expected to go to trial later this year.
Originally filed against the Obama Administration, the Trump Administration is the current defendant. The plaintiffs allege that the actions of the U.S. government in contributing to the dire climate crisis are violating their rights to life, liberty and property under the U.S. Constitution. Current climate science, particularly that of Dr. James Hansen, formerly of NASA, is central to the case.
Don't miss this rare opportunity to hear scientifically and morally grounded climate truths through the voice of a young American engaged in what has been described as "the trial of the millennium." A march and rally across the Higgins Street bridge will immediately follow the youth panel. We hope to see you there!
