The US Supreme Court will be hearing oral arguments this week in the Massachusetts v. EPA global warming case. The case revolves around whether the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the authority to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act. The Bush administration has said that the EPA doesn't have any authority over carbon dioxide emissions.
A coalition of thirty states, cities and other environmental organizations are challenging this ruling. The court's decision will determine if the EPA has authority over green-house gas emissions and also impacts the states that have adopted the California emissions rules. More information including the arguments and additional documentation are available at www.cleancarscampaign.org and clicking on "Court Action."
