European court rules that Switzerland “violated human rights” by not acting quickly enough to fight climate change
By Ethan Huff // Apr 15, 2024

The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has declared that the nation of Switzerland violated its citizens' human rights buy not doing enough to fight climate change.

In a landmark ruling with far-reaching implications, the Strasbourg court sided with a group of Swiss pensioners who accused their government of acting insufficiently to reduce so-called "carbon emissions," which in turn violated their human rights.

These members of the KlimaSeniorinnen group, supported by the environmental activism group Greenpeace, argued that older people were especially harmed by Switzerland's lack of climate hysteria. Many of these older folks supposedly died earlier than they should have because of excess heat caused by global warming.

The plaintiffs in the case also argued that climate change-related heat waves damage the mental wellbeing of older people more so than others because the elderly are much less able to go outside and withstand all the heat, which impacts their quality of life.

As insane as this all sounds, the ECHR said it agrees, citing Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights which protects the general right to life. Article 8 also guarantees the right to private and family life, something that Switzerland was deemed to have violated by not doing enough to stop carbon emissions.

Climate hysteria

According to the KlimaSeniorinnen group, domestic governments are obligated to take "reasonable and appropriate measures" to secure these rights, but Switzerland failed to do so.

The Federal Administrative Court in Switzerland had previously rejected the claim, as did the Federal Supreme Court, the country's highest ruling body. Following an appeal, the case was eventually ruled against Switzerland and in favor of the climate fanatics.

This judgment marks the third such case in which the ECHR was asked to consider the effects of climate change on human rights. All of them have now set a precedent that all national courts in the Council of Europe's membership ranks will have to follow.

The other two cases were previously dismissed, having been brought by young people in Portugal and a former French mayor, respectively. Both cases were brought to their respective national governments, arguing that the plaintiffs' human rights were violated by their respective governments' lack of hysteria over the climate.

The latest ruling in the third case is expected to create a wave of change across Europe as other nations scramble to reduce their carbon emissions and pursue a much more aggressive "green" agenda to avoid also being taken to court.

A growing number of brainwashed citizens believe that governments are not prioritizing what they consider to be a matter of utmost importance, and that their lives are suffering as a result.

Outside the Strasbourg court, climate fanatics celebrated the ruling. Also present there was none other than Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg, who was present in support of the cause.

"The ECHR verdict will send an important signal worldwide," commented Raphaël Mahaim, a lawyer involved in the case and a Green Party lawmaker in the Swiss parliament.

"It doesn't provide a specific injunction or any specific direction – it just says that you have to be more consistent with what the climate science says, but with deference to the policy prerogatives and democratic processes of the Swiss government," further commented Michael Burger, executive director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia University.

"The decision affirms that European Human Rights law ... requires governments to pursue a high level of climate ambition."
