Global Warming In The Supreme Court

Environmental law expert extraordinaire Jonathan Adler weighs in with a meaty explanation of the legal issues in the Mass. v. EPA case currently before the Supreme Court.

For those of you who may not know, this is a lawsuit brought against the EPA to force the EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions under the Clean Air Act. Contrary to what may be portrayed in the media, the Court is not deciding scientific or environmental issues- rather, they are deciding legal questions of statutory interpretation, standing, and delegated powers.
