Hawaii agrees to climate case settlementHawaii on Thursday agreed to settle a lawsuit by 13 young people alleging the U.S. state was violating their rights under its constitution by operating a transportation system that contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and climate change.

Democratic Governor Josh Green announced the "groundbreaking" settlement at a press conference attended by some of the youth activists and lawyers involved in the lawsuit, which they called the first-ever youth-led climate case seeking zero emissions in transportation.
The case had been set for trial on Monday. It would have been the second-ever trial in the U.S. of a lawsuit by young people who claim their futures and health are jeopardized by climate change and that a state's actions violated their rights.
As part of the settlement, Hawaii will develop a detailed roadmap to achieve the state's previously set goal of net zero carbon emissions in ground, sea, and interisland air transportation by 2045.
