A 23-year-old Australian law student, Katta O'Donnell, is suing her country's federal government for failing to take action on climate change. As part of a class-action lawsuit, she is accusing her country of failing to disclose the financial risks of climate change, an unusual legal tactic. O'Donnell speaks to The World's host, Marco Werman about her lawsuit and what she hopes to see.
