An interesting tactic, and I hope it holds up in court.

The younger generations do need to sue over the way that climate change and the human impact. Because at best, it has been ignored but in reality, anthropogenic climate change has been lied about by the climate denialism side (funded by special interests who continue to make money hand over fist in a world that continues to ignore its contribution to a growing problem that the younger generations will have to pay for).

I'm afraid I'm gonna have an apparently contrarian view on the hope for success of these kids' suing the government. They'll undoubtedly be dismissed by a higher court as a vexatious litigants.

To have any serious credibility, they'd also have to sue their parents—as being complicit in the government's alleged criminal activities, or as accessories after the fact. Will never happen.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

RE: The anthropogenic climate change version of Kitzmiller v. Dover Area School District?
er...uhmm...no, this is not the same thing as Kitzmiller v Dover. The suit over climate change here is more about policy than the underlying science. Although the validity of anthropogenic climate change would be finding of fact that the court needs to address, there are a number of other constitutional and legal issues that need to be decided even if the science is found to hold.

In Kitzmiller v Dover, the science was actually what was on trial--the school district defending intelligent design could only win if they proved both that evolution was not overwhelmingly and indisputably sound science and that their competing intelligence design theory was sound science. They lost on both accounts.
