BENEFITING: Our Children's Trust

THE STORY:

Twenty-one young people, and Dr. James Hansen as guardian for future generations, filed a landmark climate lawsuit in federal court to stop the U.S. government's continued exploitation of fossil fuels that threatens their rights to life, liberty, and property, and the rights of future generations as well.  The youth want the government to bring atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide to below 350 ppm by the year 2100. 

And on Nov. 12, our prediction that there would be big, monied opposition to these young people's sensible, science-based constitutional lawsuit, came to fruition: 

Nearly every oil and gas company in the world (EXXON, KOCH INDUSTRIES AND OVER ONE THOUSAND MORE!) have gathered their resources and asked the court for permission to oppose youth, side by side with President Obama, to deny the youth's request for what the industry fears most:  a science-based, national climate recovery plan.
 
These fossil fuel powerhouses call the youth’s case “a direct threat to [their] businesses.”  
  
Simply put these massive industry groups, with nearly limitless resources behind them, assert that their commerical interests in the production of fossil fuels in the United States trump youth's and future generations' life interests in a healthy atmosphere and stable climate!

So, we have to increase our goal from $15,000 to $25,000 to help us defend against these powerhouses.  Please help these young people meet this unbelievably monied opposition head on with your generous donation.

Please consider a gift of $25, $50, $100, $350 or more. Our Children's Trust uses contributions from generous everyday people to staff the growing office that works hard to support these youth and organize these cases globally at local, state, and national levels.  Join our "350 Club" with a gift of $350 or more and receive our "Healthy Atmosphere/Stable Climate/Constitutional Right" t-shirt!  

Your children, grandchildren and all future generations will thank you.  And these brave youth thank you.   And we thank you!
