Under the order of the Supreme Court of the State of Oregon.
At least, if the eco-socialists and their brainwashed minions have their way
In a nationally significant decision in the case Chernaik v. Kitzhaber, the Oregon Court of Appeals ruled a trial court must decide whether the atmosphere is a public trust resource that the state of Oregon, as a trustee, has a duty to protect. Two youth plaintiffs were initially told they could not bring the case by the Lane County Circuit Court. The trial court had ruled that climate change should be left only to the legislative and executive branches. Today, the Oregon Court of Appeals overturned that decision.
Two teenagers from Eugene, Kelsey Juliana and Olivia Chernaik, filed the climate change lawsuit against Governor Kitzhaber and the State of Oregon for failing to protect essential natural resources, including the atmosphere, state waters, and coast lines, as required under the public trust doctrine. Their lawsuit asked the State to take action in restoring the atmosphere to 350 ppm of CO2 by the end of the century. The Oregon Court of Appeals rejected the defenses raised by the State, finding that the youth could obtain meaningful judicial relief in this case.
And because the world population is over 7,000,000,000, with the state of Oregon only containing 3,900,000 of those people, the state’s actions will merit exactly zero net effect.
Hence, they will have to order all industrial, commercial and residential activity to cease. Residents of the state will be allowed to exist, provided they move into a cave that is not currently occupied by wildlife. The only other option will be to emulate Professor Dumpster.
Enjoy that, Oregonians. You can move north or south. You could also move East, but since so few of you do so currently, I think that most will choose the up or down path.
