Atmospheric Trust Litigation: Securing a Constitutional Right to a Stable Climate System In face of irreversible climate tipping points and the failure of statutory law to control carbon dioxide pollution, youth around the world are suing their governments to act before it is too late. The campaign, called Atmospheric Trust Litigation, recently won a landmark ruling from a federal district court declaring a constitutional right to a stable climate system. Professor Wood discusses this litigation in the context of climate urgency and the federal government’s policy to spur production of fossil fuels. The event is free and open to the public, but you must be registered to attend. Register at: https://cuboulder.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_9YquUdi8q5FVxCR A reception will follow in Boettcher Hall
