Know why this 11-year old kid is suing the United States Government?

March 15,2019:

A 11-year-old kid who lives on a barrier island separating the Coast of Florida, USA from the Atlantic Ocean has filed a lawsuit against US government over climate change.

Levi Draheim, the 11- year old kid stated that,“I don’t even know if the Earth is going to be around when I’m older at the rate that we’re going”.

He further added that,“I really hope when I’m older, if I have kids, that they’ll be able to see where I lived, where I played, But I don’t know if I’m even going to be alive or if we’re going to be maybe living on Mars?”

Levi is youngest of the 21 plaintiffs in legal action launched in 2015 by two associations, Our Children’s Trust and Earth Guardians, against the US government, a case which is now stalled in the courts for years.

They accuse federal authorities not only of a failure to act in the face of global warming, but also of “affirmative actions that cause climate change,” including policies that promote fossil fuels.

The plaintiff’s state that such actions will deprive future generations of their constitutional right to life, liberty and property.

Their action is separate from but complementary to that kicked off last year by Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg, who sparked weekly school strikes on climate and a global day of action on Friday.

Levi, who is home schooled, is part of a group of children who have adopted a section of oceanfront beach, cleaning it every week.

They joined the lawsuit against the US government when their local minister was contacted by Our Children’s Trust.
