Supreme Court weighs EPA authority to regulate greenhouse gases

by
February 24, 2014

The Supreme Court on Monday will hear challenges to an Obama administration greenhouse gas regulation.

The program in question is the Environmental Protection Agency’s permitting process for industry sources, which includes coal-fired power plants, chemical facilities and oil refineries.

In 2010, the EPA said its emissions standards for passenger cars “triggered” a need to regulate greenhouse gas pollutants under permits for new facilities because the gases were deemed an endangerment to “public health or welfare.”

Under the Clean Air Act, the EPA is allowed to review permits to determine if necessary technologies that would help limit pollution are being used in the construction and powering of plants.

The question before the court on Monday is if EPA extended its authority by including greenhouse gases to the list of pollutants it may regulate under the permits.

    They do not have the authority, but I’m sure they will forcefully take it.

    While I don’t feed on coal, or gasoline, or kerosene I too am a greenhouse gas generator (responsible now for the current 17 year ‘global cooling’ climate change). Should I be worried about the EPA controlling me, my exercise habits, my use of electricity? (but only the electrons moved by fossil fuels, the electron moved through solar cells and wind turbines, will not be regulated i assume)
