Supreme Court to Bush Administration on Global Warming: Deal With It

Huge news: the Supreme Court, on a 5-4 vote, rejects the do-nothing stance towards global warming of the Bush Administration, fully affirms the right of the EPA to regulate greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act, and in fact demands that the EPA show why they should not do so. The rulling was much more sweeping and decisive than legal analysts expected.

For reaction, see this round-up, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal. Or check out David’s reaction, which can be summarized thusly: YAY!

I like this comment from PolWolf on the WSJ roundup:

THIS COURT DECISION IS AN AFRONT TO EVERY RED BLOODED, PATRIOTIC REPUBLICAN. GREENHOUSE GASES ARE, AND HAVE BEEN, AS EVERY KNOWS, THE FAULT OF BILL CLINTON.
