We’re thrilled to see the Supreme Court has left standing the Environmental Protection Agency’s historic Endangerment Finding and vehicles standards. The Court’s action clears the way for EPA to move forward on carbon pollution standards for power plants, the centerpiece of the President’s climate plan. The EPA can now continue its essential efforts to protect our families from dangerous climate pollution. We have confidence that the full suite of EPA’s actions to reduce carbon pollution are legally sound. The President and the EPA have not just the authority, but the responsibility to move forward with bold measures to protect American families from the increasing threat of climate disruption.[sierraclub]

"The question in the case is whether the Environmental Protection Agency's authority to regulate automobile emissions of greenhouses gases as air pollutants, which stemmed from a 2007 Supreme Court ruling, also applies to power plants and factories."

Which is silly. The unanimous decison of the appeals court was NOT dependent on the 'power plant' being 'mobile'. It was entirely predicated on the EPA's mandate from Congress to regulate pollutants.
