Automakers get to sue to stop state CO2 regulation

Regarding the lawsuit by car makers to try and stop states from individually regulating carbon dioxide emissions, U.S. District Court Judge William Sessions has ruled that a trial can start next Tuesday to stop the CO2 regulations that have been enacted in California from being enforced. Ten other states have opted to follow the California rules since the EPA has so far declined to regulate greenhouse gases. After the Supreme Court ruled that the EPA has the authority to regulate CO2 emissions, the agency said the states can impose regulations.
