Contributing sentiments towards policy:

64% : It is almost as silly as saying the Second Amendment can only deal with muskets.
60% : She started with a bang: "Today, the Court strips the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the power Congress gave it to respond to the most pressing environmental challenge of our time."
47% : But it is not plausible that Congress gave EPA the authority to adopt on its own such a regulatory scheme.
47% : Noting the dangers of climate change and its origin from carbon dioxide emissions, she continued:"Congress charged EPA with addressing those potentially catastrophic harms, including through regulation of fossil-fuel-fired power plants.
42% : To nobody's surprise, the U.S. Supreme Court voted 6 to 3 to make it impossible for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to protect the environment from climate change, to regulate carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, to meet American commitments under the Paris Agreement, and likely to keep the planet from heating more than 2 degrees Celsius, let alone 1.5 degrees.
41% : Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the decision:"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.'
38% : Section 111 of the Clean Air Act directs EPA to regulate stationary sources of any substance that 'causes, or contributes significantly to, air pollution' and that 'may reasonably be anticipated to endanger public health or welfare.'
