LINK Supreme Court curbs EPA's ability to fight climate change - CNNPolitics

(CNN)The Supreme Court curbed the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to broadly regulate carbon emissions from existing power plants, a major defeat for the Biden administration's attempts to slash emissions at a moment when scientists are sounding alarms about the accelerating pace of global warming.

In addition, the court cut back agency authority in general invoking the so-called "major questions" doctrine -- a ruling that will impact the federal government's authority to regulate in other areas of climate policy, as well as regulation of the internet and worker safety.

The decision issued Thursday will send shockwaves across the federal government, threatening agency action that comes without clear congressional authorization.

The ruling was 6-3. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion for the conservative majority, with the three liberal justices dissenting. Roberts said that "our precedent counsels skepticism toward EPA's claim" that the law "empowers it to devise carbon emissions caps based on a generation shifting approach."

The 6 fools that voted against let religious bs influence there descision which will doom us all.


Welcome to the Hell that is SCOTUS.


This court is the food poisoning that comes after you have ingested the rotten food. It lasts far longer and has worse consequences than the bad taste the actual food left n our mouth!


What the fuck is happening?

They are now poised to systematically dismantle or halt every bit of progress we have made in humanitarian efforts for the past several decades.

SCOTUS is brazen, and now emboldened to swiftly knock down dominoes in all aspects of our lives?

Even though removing any justices is nearly impossible, we need to at least - for the record - impeach the last three scumbags appointed by the Big Liar!


I guess these bastards are looking to bring about the end of humanity so they can be raptured! 😡


A lot of people may think the conservative justices were put in place to overturn Roe vs. Wade, but that was just a hot button issue to get pro-corporate judges in place to strike down regulations that cut into profits. Making money is the name of the game, even if it is destroying the world and may lead to human extinction as a result (which will may take about 500 years, but it just became a lot more likely).
