EPA http://wrkf.org en EPA Gets A Win From Supreme Court On Global Warming Emissions — Mostly http://wrkf.org/post/epa-gets-win-supreme-court-global-warming-emissions-mostly The U.S. Supreme Court gave the Environmental Protection Agency the green light to regulate greenhouse gases that are emitted from new and modified utility plants and factories on Monday.<p>Greenhouse gases are blamed for global warming, and the court's 7-2 decision gave the EPA most of what it wanted. But in a separate 5-4 vote, the justices rejected the agency's broad assertion of regulatory power under one section of the Clean Air Act.<p>You might call the outcome in this case the 83-percent solution.
