Abstract

Leading climate scientists warn that Earth is in “imminent peril,” on the verge of runaway climate heating that will impose catastrophic conditions on generations to come. In the face of government recalcitrance this article proposes atmospheric trust litigation which would force carbon reduction through judicial relief.

Keywords: atmospheric trust litigation, climate change, Australia
