SCOTUS rules against EPA

The rules curbing emissions of mercury and other hazardous air pollutants began to take effect in April. But the court said by a 5-4 vote Monday that the EPA failed to take their cost into account when the agency first decided to regulate the toxic emissions from coal- and oil-fired plants.

I realize it is expensive to institute these regulations but isn't our planet, our kids, worth it.

Even if the SC hadn't ruled against the EPA congress is preparing a bill to allow states to opt out of any regulation clamping down on heat trapping carbon dioxide.
