CDP in the Press: Minnesota court says activists can use climate change as a defense in trial

ThinkProgress has a piece on the big climate necessity win at the Minnesota Court of Appeals. Kelsey Skaggs, co-founder and staff attorney with Climate Defense Project, is quoted:

“This is a big win for anyone who cares about climate change,” Kelsey Skaggs, a co-founder of Climate Defense Project and a member of the defendants’ legal team, said in a press statement. “The climate necessity defense is an important tool for pushing back against efforts by the federal government and industry to silence opposition to the reckless development of fossil fuels.”

Here’s some other coverage of the decision from EcoWatch, Minnesota Public Radio, a syndicated Associated Press story, Bring Me the News, and Common Dreams.
