Contributing sentiments towards policy:

70% : EPA can demand much greater reductions in emissions based on a very different kind of policy judgment: that it would be 'best' if coal made up a much smaller share of national electricity generation," Roberts wrote.
58% :"Today, the Court strips the Environmental Protection Agency of the power Congress gave it to respond to 'the most pressing environmental challenge of our time,'" the Obama appointee wrote.
58% :Roberts lays out a number of cases in which the court curbed government action for exceeding the scope prescribed by Congress.
54% :"Failure to protect our environment and invest in clean energy sources has direct implications for our communities, especially for people of color, poor people, and the disabled," Julio López Varona, the group's chief of campaigns, said in a statement.
48% : "But it is not plausible that Congress gave EPA the authority to adopt on its own such a regulatory scheme in Section 111(d).
47% : "Capping carbon dioxide emissions at a level that will force a nationwide transition away from the use of coal to generate electricity may be a sensible 'solution to the crisis of the day,'" the Bush appointee wrote.
45% :"The Court today issues what is really an advisory opinion on the proper scope of the new rule EPA is considering," Kagan wrote.
40% : Today, the EPA says it no longer wants to use either the Clean Power Plan or ACE rule, but several Republican-led states and coal companies still wanted the high court to intervene.
34% : Litigation erupted after former President Donald Trump withdrew the plan, with the D.C. Circuit later vacating the repeal and the EPA offering a replacement solution known as the ACE rule, short for Affordable Clean Energy.
33% : Writing for the conservative supermajority, Chief Justice John Roberts said the decision to regulate carbon dioxide emissions should be left to Congress, not the Environmental Protection Agency.
