the state recognized as responsible for climate inaction

The French state has just been recognized as responsible for climate inaction by the courts.

The deliberation of the Affair of the Century was pronounced this Wednesday by the administrative court of Paris.

The court “condemns the State to 1 symbolic euro in compensation for non-pecuniary damage, rejects the request for compensation for ecological damage, is given 2 more months to rule on the aggravation of ecological damage,” specifies Arnaud Gossement, a lawyer specializing in Environmental Law.
