The German Federal Constitutional Court demands faster responses to climate change, because delaying necessary measures unconstitutionally limits the freedom of future generations. Almost all areas of human life are linked to the emission of greenhouse gases. Virtually all freedom is potentially affected by the necessary reductions. Even so, those who are not yet born have no rights. Current policies do not violate the fundamental rights, as set out in the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Germany, of residents of Bangladesh and Nepal.
The jurisprudential decision will be analyzed and contextualized with the Paris Agreement, the European Climate Law, and the policies of the states parties.
