Make way for Generation Z.
Thirteen-year-old Hallie Turner of Raleigh, North Carolina, is filing a lawsuit against her home state, Al Jazeerareported Friday. The suit demands the state adhere to 4% annual deductions in carbon dioxide emissions.
“I was [in] about third or fourth grade when the issue of climate change just came up at a dinner table conversation, and I had never really heard about it and I wanted to find out more about it,” Turner told a local news reporter in a video posted Friday to Twitter. “I read Al Gore’s book, An Inconvenient Truth, and that just insanely inspired me and opened my eyes to how big of an issue it was, and immediately after reading that I was amazed at how apathetic people were towards the issue.”
