In 2019, Greta Thunberg filed a complaint with the UN against the inaction of the states in relation to climate change because it violates the rights of children. An 18-person UN panel of experts discussed this for a long time and came to the conclusion that the UN was not responsible for this at all. The lawyers representing the children said they would try to go to the national courts, but it would likely be time consuming and unsuccessful.
“I have no doubt that this ruling will haunt the committee in the future,” US petitioner Alexandria Villasenor said of the ruling, according to Reuters. “If the climate disasters are worse than now, the committee will sincerely regret not doing the right thing when he got the chance. “
