Thank God . The last thing we need is a bunch of lawyers and jurors attempting to regulate emissions by filling a multatude of law suits. In which the citizens would eventually pay for. With higher utility bills.

This issue notwithstanding, please read the 10th amendment to the Constitution--better yet, read the whole document.

"The states of California, Connecticut, Iowa, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont said their citizens have been harmed by global warming...."

We've all been harmed by this hoax, in one way or another, mostly by indirect hits to our wallets.
Well done, Supreme Court, it's good to see that some common sense still remains in the USA.

Modesty and respect for the limits of the Constitution; the Supreme Court of the United States does not have the right to mitigate climate change. Kudos for respecting the law, if anything, the individual has the right to emit CO2 unrestricted, freedom of speech.

"Well done, Supreme Court, it's good to see that some common sense still remains in the USA."

Yep. The Supreme Court reaffirmed that the EPA should regulate GHG. That will be much faster than the lawsuits.

I agree, but not everyone does:

I know the whole document, fool. What YOU need to do is to quit ignoring history. States rights went down on April 9, 1865. Yet some people persist in believing the Earth is flat.

Love seeing a post like this. The Supreme Court hands down a decision that didn't go the way the poster wanted it to, and all of a sudden the whole thing in their eyes is nothing but some grand, ambiguous conspiracy backed up by no facts or data.

Yes, we live in a democracy with authority delegated to federal agencies. What maybe bogus to you is serious as a heart attack to those Arizonians and Floridians whose homes are in the path of the largest forest fires in history.

The state EPA may already require reporting of CO2 emissions in tons emitted per year. The tons of CO2 emitted by one coal fired power plant in one hour may be in the realm of science fiction.

Al Gore won the 2000 election against George Bush, but the conservatives told the American people to shove it. We suffered through 9/11, two of the costliest and longest wars in American history, the collapse of Wall Street banks and the largest deficits in American history.

And now President Obama's deliberate destruction of the economy, new health care taxes, oil moratoriums, weak dollar policy and vast new spending bringing us to record debt.

Taxpayers in those states already paid for this frivolous lawsuit in addition to our utility companies and consumers. Attorneys were the only folks getting rich off this lawsuit at our expense.

One more Obumba court appointment like the two ultra-liberal ladies he appointed and the result will be different.

The enviro-nut's will control the courts with a liberal 5-4 majority..

Elections have consequences and Obumba must be defeated for sanity sake.
