A Berlin court threw out a lawsuit filed by three families with organic farms who blamed the German government for changing weather patterns, floods and drought, and sued the German state for its alleged failure to meet climate change targets. The Berlin Administrative Court ruled that the 2020 targets to reduce emissions by 40% were not legally binding. Greenpeace, supporters of the farmers, claimed that Germany has a special responsibility as a rich, industrialized nation and should be held accountable for historic emissions that it has already put into the atmosphere.
