TGIF! I had a crazy week and couldn’t manage a post on Monday, but this news should make up for it.

Here’s a whale of a story complete with cute photos.

File this under “From the mouths of babes”: A group of 21 young plaintiffs aged 11-23 years old, have filed suit against the Trump administration for actions that cause climate change, and for failing to protect essential public trust resources. Bravo!
The case (officially Juliana v. United States) argues that their generation will be denied their constitutional right to life, liberty and property if nothing is done. Adding fuel to the fire: a United Nations report issued in October predicts climate catastrophe if global emissions continue at their present rate.

Youth v. Gov, as the suit has been nicknamed, aims to put the administration in the spotlight, with the goal of holding corporations and governments accountable for their role in the crisis.
Call it the tip of the quickly-melting iceberg.
This is one of the most inspiring stories I’ve read.
Girl Scout Troop 6000 in New York City was created by an employee of the Girl Scouts of Greater New York who’d had to move to a shelter after her rental home was sold.
