Huge greenhouse gas ruling, little reaction

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

imageThe Supreme Court’s ruling Monday that states can’t take utilities to court over greenhouse gas emissions on their own is being called the court’s most important environmental ruling in years. But you wouldn’t know it from the deafening silence of both environmentalists and industry.

Add: Craig Miller at KQED’s Climate Watch blog gets a quote from California Air Resources Board chair Mary Nichols that appears to put the best spin possible on an outcome that California—which was one of six plaintiff states—surely didn’t want. For now, she and others appear to be taking comfort in the court’s affirming EPA’s role to regulate greenhouse gas emissions—that is, until the next time Congress tries to rein in the agency.
