Supreme Court limits EPA’s greenhouse gas regulations, but not by much
See the original posting on The Verge
The Supreme Court reined in the Environmental Protection Agency in a ruling on Monday, but the limitations it imposed were slight and largely allow the agency to continue instating regulations on greenhouse gas emitters. In a long and complex ruling, the court found that one of the ways that the EPA had been regulating large bodies like power plants was illegal namely, it had adjusted the specific language of a law addressing pollutants. However, the agency has other means to apply these regulations in most situations.
