Our Children's Trust

The teenagers who sued the state of Oregon over climate change got their day in court.

And the court said no, in essence.  Now the teens are appealing their case to a higher court. 

Our Children's Trust steered the case to court, in the hope of producing state legislative action on climate change. 

Attorney Chris Winter argued the case for the teens; he joins us with details of the appeal strategy.
