Alaska Supreme Court hears youth climate change lawsuit
An Alaska law promoting fossil fuel development infringes on the constitutional rights of young residents to a healthy environment, a lawyer told Alaska Supreme Court justices on Wednesday.

A lawsuit filed by 16 Alaska youths claimed long-term effects of climate change will devastate the country’s northernmost state and interfere with their constitutional rights to life, liberty and public trust resources that sustain them.

The state’s legislative and executive branches have not taken steps to lower greenhouse gas emissions and adopted a policy that promotes putting more in the air, said attorney Andrew Welle of the Oregon-based Our Children’s Trust group. ...

From Article:
"... long-term effects of climate change will devastate the country’s northernmost state..."

Alternatively...

"Scientists have assumed that ice cliffs taller than 90 meters (about the height of the Statue of Liberty) would rapidly collapse under their own weight, contributing to more than 6 feet of sea-level rise by the end of the century — enough to completely flood Boston and other coastal cities. But now MIT researchers have found that this particular prediction may be overestimated.

In a paper published today in Geophysical Research Letters, the team reports that in order for a 90-meter ice cliff to collapse entirely, the ice shelves supporting the cliff would have to break apart extremely quickly, within a matter of hours — a rate of ice loss that has not been observed in the modern record.

“Ice shelves are about a kilometer thick, and some are the size of Texas,” says MIT graduate student Fiona Clerc. “To get into catastrophic failures of really tall ice cliffs, you would have to remove these ice shelves within hours, which seems unlikely no matter what the climate-change scenario.”

Ever lived in Alaska, Carl? I have. Nothing they can really do and no impact anyway due to the limited nor of people. But again, that means one buys into the mantra that any climate change is being caused by human activity or human activity alone, which is doubtful. The earth is receiving an ever increasing amount of solar radiation, for instance, Meanwhile, it is quite a stretch to believe that scientists have all the answers when they haven't even found all the questions yet.

The burning of wood in Alaska creates more pollution than fossil fuels, one would imagine. So why not complain about the burning of trees for heat? Simply silliness.

Basically this is a recipe for mass unemployment, as places like Alaska are financially dependent on fossil fuel industries, and the eco sources as prouder woukd make energy bills hit the root, leading to great poverty.

I wonder how many of those teens are for abortion? Claiming it’s their constitutional right to life as they fight against climate change.

I think the climate change activist are harming my future due to their intent destruction of energy sources...

When they stop supporting fossil fuels, they are supporting the horrible poverty around the world that could stopped by cheap plastics, fuel, and machinery...

Maybe we oughta due a counter lawsuit...

Well, Alaskan’s have received a check due to the pipeline for decades. How about Exxon just stop sending the money and shut down wells. And that way when mom and dad are driving their yard ape all over kingdom come, they can turn around to backseat and thump them on the head and explain “ this is why we can’t have nice things!”.

I totally agree with "The Quiet Christian's" comments. In my option, this particular lawyer couldn't care less about this, but has his own private agenda at heart and most likely is acting in behalf of our crooked politicians.

The judge in that case concluded that courts lack scientific, economic and technological resources that agencies can use to determine climate policy and it was best left in their hands.

I got news for that judge he isn't going to get the information from any government agencies either or some of the more important ones

Now, as the EPA prepares its report on those standards later this month, 20 of those scientists are meeting independently to release their own assessment of current air pollution levels, with a focus on the particles from fossil fuels that can make people sick.

These scientists and researchers, former members of the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee (CASAC) on particulate matter, said the EPA has stripped the panel down to its core seven members, who are ill-equipped to set air quality standards and don’t have the time to do it...

Laughable. Around a million people live in a state that is about a third the size of the continental US as a whole. (More people live on Oahu in Hawaii.) Also, Alaska is quite far north, mostly in the arctic and sub-arctic regions. The two combined make for the feeling of being on the frontier. Not a lot of relative impact and not a lot of alternatives, and that's only if one happens to think that human impact is the major driving force when other variables have been ignored.
