The impact of the recent Supreme Court ruling to limit the EPA’s ability to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants will have far-reaching and long-lasting consequences. The dissenting justices stated, “Today, the Court strips the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the power Congress gave it to respond to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time. The Court appoints itself — instead of Congress or the expert agency—the decision maker on climate policy. I cannot think of many things more frightening.”
