This episode of The Green Interview features Roger Cox, a Dutch lawyer and author, who led the Dutch Climate Case, the groundbreaking suit brought against the Netherlands on behalf of the Urgenda Foundation and 900 Dutch Citizens. In 2015, the case concluded with an unprecedented verdict in which the district court in The Hague ordered the Dutch government to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions more dramatically than it had intended, arguing it had a duty of care to its citizens. Cox is also the author of the 2011 book, Revolution Justified: Why Only the Law Can Save Us Now, which calls for judicial intervention to save the planet and humanity from dangerous climate change. "Our best hope of averting dangerous climate change and breaking the status quo in the energy world is the law," he says.
