View of La Baells reservoir in Berga, about 112 km (69 miles) north of Barcelona. Spain, Sunday, March 26, 2023. Farmers and parishioners gathered Sunday at the small hermitage of l'Espunyola, a rural village in Catalonia, to attend a mass asking the local virgin Our Lady of the Torrents for rain. All three reservoirs near the village are below a third of their capacity, with la Baells reservoir only a 25% full. They are no exception to reservoirs in the Barcelona region, after a strike of 30 months of very little rain. (AP Photo/Emilio Morenatti)

Una risoluzione (non vincolante) delle Nazioni Unite, approvata all’unanimità (Italia compresa), chiede alla Corte Internazionale di Giustizia di pronunciarsi sugli obblighi che gli Stati hanno nel contrastare il cambiamento climatico.

Chiede anche di proporre conseguenze legali per le nazioni che non si attivano in questo senso.

Il pronunciamento, partito da una richiesta dell’isoletta Vanuatu, nel Pacifico, che rischia di essere sommersa dalle acque, potrebbe portare anche a sentenze dei tribunali contro le compagnie petrolifere che hanno contribuito al riscaldamento globale con i loro combustibili fossili. (Foto AP)
