Contributing sentiments towards policy:

48% : The court ruled 6-3 that Congress did not allow the EPA to move to regulate emissions caps and spur a shift to renewable energy transitions, thus limiting its authority to regulate coal-burning power plants.
48% : The ruling essentially means the EPA does not have the ability, without authority from Congress, to transition the country's energy production toward cleaner sources such as wind or solar power.
48% : "But it is not plausible that Congress gave EPA the authority to adopt on its own such a regulatory scheme."
43% : Biden's stalled Build Back Better Act includes more than $110 billion toward clean energy technology and supply chains, $105 billion for energy resiliency, and $20 billion going toward clean energy procurement.
40% :"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,'" Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion.
39% :Justice Elena Kagan wrote in her dissent that Congress did give the EPA power to regulate power plants, and the ruling strips the agency of its authority to take any action on emissions and clean energy transitions."And let's say the obvious: The stakes here are high," she wrote.
