Landmark ruling demanding climate action upheld by Dutch Supreme Court

The Supreme Court of Netherlands has upheld a ruling which orders the government of the country to take further actions to combat climate change. The decision comes after a nearly six year long fight for climate justice. The Court ruled that the government cut emissions by at least 25% as compared with 1990 levels, by the end of 2020. In 2018, emissions were 15% below 1990 levels.

What's the population of the Netherlands? 1,000, 2,000 people? Max. I'm sure they're going to make a huge impact on climate change. /s

This is an example of why the USA should NOT be allowing judges to force policy upon the people. Instead of a king, you end up with a boatload of kings.

Suddenly everyone is banned from driving and all industry is shut down. But hey, at least the climate was nice in the stone age.
