(Scroll down for video) U.S. President Barack Obama was slapped with a lawsuit after being accused of failing to act on climate change, according to court documents.

15-year-old Xiuhtezcatl Tonatiuh of Colorado, said that he is very disappointed by the lack of action by the Obama administration in regards to climate change.

Ironically, Tonatiuh received the U.S. Community Service Award in 2013, which was presented to him by President Obama for his environmental activism.

Now, the teenager is joining forces with climatologist James Hansen, to sue the Obama administration for inaction regarding the use of fossil fuels.

Tonatiuh is one of 21 plaintiffs suing the president for his failure to stop fossil fuels in the U.S.

Tonatiuh expects the lawsuit to send a clear message to Obama that he is not doing his job as president, and that a bunch of kids are very disappointed.
