A group of young people – ages 11 to 15 – filed a petition last year to the Washington Department of Ecology (DOE) requesting they do more to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. This past week the King County Superior Court ordered DOE to consider the petition which they initially rejected. The hope is that this petition, and the ruling by the court, will get the state to start regulating carbon emissions.
