  • 13-year-old takes North Carolina to court over climate change

    Hallie Turner, an eighth grader at Ligon Middle School in Raleigh, has petitioned the state Environmental Management Commission to issue an edict that would require North Carolina to reduce its carbon dioxide emissions by at least 4 percent each year. On Friday, she was in Wake County Superior Court seeking judicial review of the commission's decision not to hear her petition. Hallie, a climate change activist since the fourth grade, was inspired to take up the issue after reading Al Gore's book, "An Inconvenient Truth: The Crisis of Global Warming."
