Supreme Court curbs EPA's ability to fight climate change

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Spazito (a host of the Latest Breaking News forum).

Source: CNN

The Supreme Court curbed the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to broadly regulate carbon emissions from existing power plants, a major defeat for the Biden administration's attempts to slash emissions at a moment when scientists are sounding alarms about the accelerating pace of global warming.

In addition, the court cut back agency authority in general invoking the so-called "major questions" doctrine -- a ruling that will impact the federal government's authority to regulate in other areas of climate policy, as well as regulation of the internet and worker safety.
The ruling was 6-3. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the opinion for the conservative majority, with the three liberal justices dissenting.
This story is breaking and will be updated.

2. those six monsters are among the most selfish, ignorant, short sighted humans in all of history

It is breathtaking, the destruction being carried out on their watch.

I expect some serious dollars are finding their way secretly into their pockets.

5. Is it really just dollars?

That can’t be the only reason for them to destroy this country. We could start a go fund me to get them some cash.

I am seriously more shocked by this decision, than I am by the decision to overturn Roe.

They’re trying to start a civil war.

7. I doubt it's anything so mundane as dollars.

Cash, bonds, and any form of remittance is too easy to track. They're probably getting their friends and family members jobs, gov't contracts, scholarships, and other kinds of 'payment'.
