Supreme Court Ruling on the EPA

Today's Supreme Court ruling in the case of West Virginia vs. Environmental Protection Agency undermines our collective expectation that we all deserve clean air to breathe, and that our leaders will do everything in their power to prevent the worst impacts of climate change. The decision is out of touch with the majority of American voters who expect the government to protect clean air and take bold climate action.

The science is clear, climate change is happening, and the economic and social impacts will continue to intensify decade over decade unless significant carbon reductions are realized. Communities with less wealth and influence will continue to feel the worst effects of climate change. Without the EPA's ability to regulate carbon pollution from industries, including our electric utilities, future generations of Americans will pay the price with their health and well-being.
