Climate action lawyers respond to High Court case dismissal

From Midday Report, 12:43 pm on 23 November 2022

The High Court has dismissed a case against the Climate Change Commission which argued their plan would prevent the country keeping warming to 1.5 degrees celsius or less.

The case, taken by hundreds of lawyers for climate action, believed the Commission had used the wrong maths to make recommendations to the government.

This was found not to be true. 

The lead for Lawyers for Climate Action Jenny Cooper KC spoke to Charlotte Cook.
