Climate activists in France celebrated a historic victory this week after a court ruled the French state failed to take necessary action to fight the climate catastrophe.

The French state was ordered to pay a symbolic one euro to each of the four organizations while the court reviews other potential steps President Emmanuel Macron’s government might be asked to take.
