Good things are happening! Montana youth have brought a first-of-its-kind climate justice case to trial, and a similar effort in Oregon is soon to follow. Plus, the Senate is taking steps to address the insurance industry’s profit-hungry approach to climate disaster, and SCOTUS sides with Native American families. Not only that, but a new cleaner residential heating technology is  gaining popularity, voters are standing up for struggling renters, and more.

All this and much more in this week’s edition of You Love To See It below, a weekly feature reviewing good news, progress, and action steps that’s one of the many features available only to Lever supporting subscribers.

Landmark Youth-Led Climate Justice Trial Begins

The first constitutional climate trial in U.S. history began this week in Montana, where 16 young people are suing state officials for failing to uphold the constitutional right to a healthy environment. A similar lawsuit in Oregon –– which was challenged by both the Trump and Obama administrations and which The Lever previously reported that the Biden Administration tried to quash –– will also now go to trial. These groundbreaking cases could set a legal precedent for Americans to demand climate action from state governments.
