The Supreme Court just issued a deeply damaging ruling that narrows the EPA’s ability to limit climate-busting carbon emissions from power plants—constraining the agency’s ability to set effective standards where they’re needed most.
Even worse, this aggressive decision also announced a broad and dangerous major questions' doctrine that could hamper our government’s ability to protect us from dangers like unsafe working conditions, tainted food and drugs, and other threats.
But all is not lost: EPA still has authority to rein in pollution from the power sector.
The power sector is our second-largest source of carbon pollution. We can’t stop climate change without pushing the power sector to reach net-zero emissions by 2035.
This is a leadership moment like no other for the White House and Congress.
