      Documents in Supreme Court case on greenhouse emissions regulation
      Posted on Thursday, November 30, 2006

      On November 29 the U.S. Supreme Court heard arguments in the case of
      Commonwealth of Massachusetts et al. v. Environmental Protection
      Agency, on the issue of EPA�s refusal to regulate greenhouse gas
      emissions from new vehicles. The case presented the questions of (1)
      whether EPA has authority to regulate air pollutants associated with
      climate change under the Clean Air Act, and (2) whether EPA may
      decline to issue emission standards for motor vehicles based on policy
      considerations. Much of the case revolves around �standing� and other
      legal issues, but as documents in the case, the hearing transcript,
      and media coverage make clear, the case raises questions about how to
      translate climate science into decisionmaking.
