Dutch Class Action Suit Forces Netherlands to Cut Global Warming Emissions Faster

[…] the news today is the success of a class-action suit aimed at making the Dutch government cut global warming emissions faster than previously planned.

“This historic ruling will have far reaching consequences in the Netherlands, Europe and the rest of the world,” said Gerben-Jan Gerbrandy, a Dutch member of the European Parliament in the Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe.

“This could be the first judicial warning shot to governments around the world,” said Bill Hare of Climate Analytics.
