Greta Thunberg Sues Her Home Country Sweden

Legal action has been taken against the Swedish government by a group of children and young adults led by conspiracy theorist Greta Thunberg for failing to take appropriate steps to combat “climate change.”

On Friday, hundreds of activists, led by Greta Thunberg, marched through the Swedish capital to a Stockholm district court to sue the government for allegedly not doing enough to address climate change, NBC reported.

The 87-page document filed with the Stockholm District Court was signed by over 600 people under the age of 26 who are the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.

The group argued that Sweden’s climate policies violate its constitution as well as the European Convention on Human Rights.

“The Swedish state has never treated the climate crisis as the crisis it is, and the new government has clearly signaled that it won’t do that either,” said Anton Foley, a member of Aurora who prepared and filed the lawsuit. “Sweden is failing in its responsibility and breaking the law.”

“The Swedish state fails to meet the constitutional requirement to promote sustainable development leading to a good environment for present and future generations,” the group said in a statement.

Bloomberg reported:

In 2017, Sweden adopted a climate law that requires the government to work to reduce emissions of planet-warming gases toward a net-zero target set for 2045.

Cutting greenhouse gas emissions is key to meeting the 2015 Paris Agreement target of keeping global warming below 2C by the end of the century.

However, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February triggered a scramble for energy that’s set back efforts and this year’s UN-sponsored climate talks in Egypt failed to step up ambitions.

In an interview with Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter, Thunberg said she believes climate laws should be tightened.

“We don’t have laws that provide long-term protection from the consequences of climate and environmental crises, but we need to use the methods at our disposal and do everything we can,” she said.

The lawsuit, which has been in the works for two years, comes as the new Swedish government’s policies on climate change face intense scrutiny.

    Brainwashed idiots. Sounds like they want starve or freeze to death to save the planet. I think the planet needs to be saved from these lunatics.

    Take away their citizenship, over this nonsense.

  • Larry Wahnsiedler says:

    The problem is, some people listen to this uneducated child. Just what are her credentials? She has none. I want to know who is funding this festering boil on the ass of humanity. She does not have the money or the knowledge to file a lawsuit.

  • Garrett says:

    The courts must require her to present evidence backed by observable science (not leftist talking points) in order to make her case. Real scientists claim that the models used by climate scientists are flawed and they keep changing them. Climate change is inevitable and has always occurred throughout history. There is nothing Greta can do that will alter the truth.

  • RM says:

    Poor poor Greta hasn’t a clue about earth science’s our plant has moved off its axis 1 or 2 degrees as it always does and has done for millions of years. Climate change is a made-up word it is something greedy men and women have created to enrich themselves at our expense the Al Gores of this world are manipulators and Greta Thunberg is a nitwit send her to her Mommie and daddy or better yet they need to be in hospital for mentally ill people with years of treatment.
