Three peasant families are suing the federal government because climate change is jeopardizing their existence and politics is doing too little. This is now followed by 213 invitees.
Dried corn crops, not enough hay, stunted winter seeds, chickens that suffer from the heat - climate change has begun, and this threatens livelihoods. Not only on the South Sea islands affected by the sea rise or in the expanding dry zones of the world, but today, now and here in Germany. Above all farmers, but also foresters, landscapers or animal farms - those who live from and with nature, their operations are acutely endangered by climate change.
Three farming families and Greenpeace filed a lawsuit in October 2018 because the federal government will clearly fail to meet its 2020 climate target. Actually, carbon dioxide emissions should decrease by 2020 percent by 40 compared to 1990. The reluctance of politicians to finally reduce greenhouse gases effectively jeopardizes the applicants' fundamental rights such as the right to life and health, the protection of property or the right to bequeath their property or to exercise their profession freely.
Today, Greenpeace submitted a request to the Berlin Administrative Court to allow 213 additional people to take part in the Greenpeace climate action against the German government. Invited are people who are involved in the outcome of a procedure. They were selected from 4500 people who had contacted Greenpeace to support the lawsuit.
Lawyers had examined the cases and selected people whose fundamental rights are already threatened by climate change. They would like to take part in the climate complaint as a companion to show that they too could complain; that the three families who are actually complaining are not alone in their cause. And that they too find it negligent not to stop climate change with all their might. Now the court has to decide whether the additional loads are permitted.
