13-YEAR-OLD FILES LAWSUIT OVER ‘CLIMATE CHANGE’ – SAYS GORE ‘INSANELY INSPIRED ME’

-

In August, President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to cut carbon dioxide emissions by 32 percent in the next 15 years.

However, Governor Pat McCrory has called the plan an overreach and has said it would threaten job creation while raising customers’ power bills.

Duke Energy, the nation’s largest utility, has said it has already cut its power plant emissions by 22 percent since 2005.

Turner has gotten major support about filing a lawsuit after her petition for new climate change rules was rejected by the N.C. Environmental Management Commission.

A nonprofit helped Turner file the suit and attorneys at Duke University are among those representing her.
