It was a particularly busy – and consequential – June for the Supreme Court.
In a 6-3 ruling, the Court decided that the Environmental Protection Agency has overstepped its authority in regulating heat trapping gasses from power plants.
This is an odd case involving an interpretation of a 1970s law that set the foundation for a climate regulation that doesn’t even exist. In this episode, we’ll look at what led to the Supreme Court to take up the case.
Now that the high court has restricted how America’s environmental cop can enforce climate pollution rules, how severe are the consequences? And where can federal agencies continue to make progress?
