Eugene Teen Featured On National TV Talk Show


Hundreds of people gathered in downtown Eugene Sunday to rally for more action on climate change. This is in solidarity with a Global Climate march focused on the United Nations Climate Summit taking place this week in New York.

South Eugene High School graduate Kelsey Juliana took part in the march in New York Sunday. She was also featured this week on the public broadcasting show Moyers and Company.  She told Bill Moyers about her lawsuitagainst the state of Oregon which the State Court of Appeals recently returned to Lane County Circuit court. The suit asks government to do more to prevent climate change as stewards of public trust resources.

Bill Moyers: "What happens now?"
Juliana: "We go back to the trial court again probably with different courts, in a way start over. But now with the recognition that the courts do have power and they do have a responsibility to follow through with this case."

Kelsey Juliana is taking part in a March for Climate Action that's crossing the country. They plan to arrive in Washington DC on November 1st.
