    Youth from Kids vs Global Warming (the non-profit organization behind iMatter), working with the non-profit group, Our Childrens Trust and pro-bono attorneys around the country, have sued the federal and state governments of the United States to secure climate recovery plans that will restore the balance of the climate systems.  The plaintiffs are asking the judges to rule that the atmosphere is a common resource, a public trust, shared by all. 
     The lawsuits require the government to put Climate Recovery Plans into place that reduce carbon emissions by at least 6% per year, the rate needed to restore balance in the atmosphere, according to top climate scientists led by Dr James Hansen, climatologist with NASA.
