    Jeremy Hodges, Lauren Leatherby and Kartikay Mehrotra, May 24, 2018 (Bloomberg News)

    “In the global fight against climate change, one tool is proving increasingly popular: litigation…From California to the Philippines, activists, governments and concerned citizens are suing the biggest polluters and national governments over the effects of climate change at a break-neck pace…[Our Children’s Trust, a legal challenge center in the U.S.,] is involved in climate change litigation across 13 countries, including the U.S., Pakistan and Uganda…The wave of activity is about channeling the fervor of a social movement to drive change via the legal system.
