Alec Loorz, the key plaintiff in the case against the U.S. government.

I wrote a post yesterday about a group of American teenagers who are suing the US government for not doing more to prevent the impacts of climate change.

I personally am following this case with great interest, because it has the potential to change the way that we fight to address greenhouse gas emissions on a large scale.

The key plaintiff in the case, Alec Loorz, wrote a guest post on another climate blog site, outlining his reasons for taking on the government in such an extreme way.

Check out what he has to say.
