Supreme Court Lets EPA’s Historic Endangerment Finding and Vehicles Guidance Stand

WASHINGTON, D.C.—(ENEWSPF)—October 15, 2013. The United States Supreme Court today denied industry and state petitions that challenged the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA’s) historic finding that greenhouse gases endanger public health and welfare. The high court also left standing EPA’s common sense and achievable emission standards for vehicles. The Court granted review on the narrow question of “whether EPA permissibly determined that its regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from new motor vehicles triggered permitting requirements under the Clean Air Act for stationary sources that emit greenhouse gases.”

Michael Brune, Sierra Club Executive Director, issued the following statement:

“Today is a victory for all Americans who care about our children’s future. 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.”
