The Supreme Court recently ruled 5-4 that the EPA has the authority to regulate carbon dioxide to address concerns surrounding global warming. But some, like Myron Ebell of the Competitive Enterprise Institute disagree with the High Court’s ruling, and he had this to say: “This Supreme Court decision implies that Congress ratified the Kyoto Protocol in 1977 when it enacted the Clean Air Act’s regulations regarding auto emissions, but global warming wasn’t even an issue until over a decade later. Tragically, the Court’s decision all but empowers EPA to take control of America’s global warming policy, and for an agency as unaccountable as EPA to be deputized in this way without the consent of Congress is bad news for the future of our country.”
