Raging wildfires, record-setting hurricanes – climate change has reached a new level of urgency. And that’s why one group of young activists is trying to hold Washington responsible. Environmental journalist Lee Van Der Voo joins host Krys Boyd to talk about the 21 young people who sued the federal government in a landmark case that sought to hold elected officials responsible for protecting the planet. Her new book is “As the World Burns: The New Generation of Activists and the Landmark Legal Fight Against Climate Change.”
