What can be done when governments fail to act on climate change threats?

Steven Hartman, environmental humanities scholar

Environmental humanities researcher Steven Hartman discusses the Our Children’s Trust case, Juliana vs. the United States of America, as the kind of innovative thinking and novel approach necessary to counteract government failures to act on climate change. Author Naomi Klein has called the lawsuit, now set to go to trial on 5 February 2018, “the most important case in the world.”
