(Washington, DC) — In a 6-3 ruling, the Supreme Court ruled the EPA doesn’t have broad authority to move U.S. energy production away from coal-burning power plants and toward cleaner, renewable energy sources. The case has serious implications for the government’s ability to manage climate change.
Justice Elena Kagan wrote the dissenting opinion. She said the high court is stripping the EPA of the “power Congress gave it to respond to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time.”
