Sweden: Greta Thunberg has filed a case against her own country, know what is the matter


The Supreme Court gave an important decision in the year 2019

In the lawsuit filed on Friday in Stockholm, the group urged the court to require governments to take global measures to keep greenhouse gas emissions in line with the targets of the Paris Agreement. The Swedish climate case follows a high-profile case in the Netherlands, in which the Supreme Court ruled in 2019 that governments have a legal obligation to take reasonable steps to reduce global warming.

The group that filed the lawsuit claims that Sweden’s climate policies violate not only the country’s constitution, but also the European Convention on Human Rights. “Sweden has failed to do what is needed to provide a healthy environment for present and future generations and to promote sustainable development,” the group said in a statement.

Please tell that in the year 2017, Sweden had adopted a ‘Climate Law’. According to this law, Sweden has to work to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases in order to achieve the net-zero carbon emission target set for 2045. Cutting greenhouse gas emissions is critical to meeting the 2015 Paris Agreement target of keeping global warming below 2°C by the end of the 21st century.

However, things have changed since Russia’s invasion of Ukraine in February. European countries have begun a scramble for energy supplies, leaving behind all climate efforts. Currently, for the first time in Sweden, a right-wing government has been formed under the leadership of Ulf Christerson. The policies of the new government also show that it is not serious about the dangers associated with climate change.

Climate talks organized by the United Nations in Egypt this year also failed to make any significant progress. According to media reports, Greta Thunberg said that climate laws need to be made more stringent. Greta said that we do not have such laws at all, which can provide long-term protection from the consequences of climate and environmental hazards. However, we must continue to do what we can.
