Judge Finds Government Guilty of Climate Crimes


A court in the Hague has ordered the Dutch government to cut its carbon emissions following a climate change liability suit brought by the green lobby group Urgenda, under human rights and tort law. They accused the Dutch government of  “knowingly contributing” to global warming…

The loons at at Urgenda can’t believe their luck:

“We had thought the legal system would not want to interfere in the political debate. But the scientific case is so strong, and the dangers so high that the court has ruled that the state is failing to adequately protect its citizens from the effects of climate change.”

Sounds democratic…
