Supreme Court deals blow to Obama by putting his climate change rules on hold

1 post in this topic

upreme Court dealt a surprising setback to President Obama on Tuesday by putting his climate change policy on hold while a coalition of coal producers and Republican-led states challenges its legality.

The justices, by a 5-4 vote, issued an unusual emergency order that blocks the Environmental Protection Agency from moving forward with its effort to reduce carbon pollution from power plants by 32% by 2030.

The order said the EPA's “carbon pollution emission guidelines” for power plants are “stayed pending” a decision from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, which will hear the case this summer.

It is rare for the high court to intervene in a case pending in the lower courts. The brief order suggests that most of the justices have doubts about the legality of the EPA's policy.

 

The order could also be a sign that conservative justices are increasingly skeptical of Obama’s use of executive authority.

f*** yeah! Take that, you self proclaimed KING! This is so much bs anyway. Corporations and military are the ones polluting the crap out of the entire world from underground to the ionosphere!  Make sure you turn down your thermostats! And turn off those lights! They'd have you stumbling around in the damn dark if they thought they could get away with that.
