    US Supreme Court blocks Obama carbon emissions plan


    The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday delivered a major blow to President Barack Obama by blocking federal regulations to curb carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, the centerpiece of his administration's strategy to combat climate change.

    On a 5-4 vote, the court granted a request made by 27 states and various companies and business groups to block the administration's Clean Power Plan. The move means the regulations will not be in effect while litigation continues over whether their legality.

    What is it with you guys?

    You wet yourself over essentially nothing. The move means the regulations will not be in effect while litigation continues over their legality.
    The issues were not decided, you morons.

    Can't you get anything right?

    Our studies show that globally, volcanoes on land and under the sea release a total of about 200 million tonnes of CO2 annually.

    He better figure out how to stop this with his pen and phone.

    Maxey, it doesn't matter. Even if the statement agrees with JugheadJimbo, he's going to argue and call people names. It's just how he is.
    I can only imagine what it was like giving him his annual review at work. But my guess is he was union and just got raises because they were mandated.
    I doubt he ever received anything on merit other than being laid off.

    And there is more hope on the horizon...

    The court action also means that, with Obama leaving office in January 2017, the next president will have a say on whether to continue defending the regulation.

    As was stated in your very first post the EPA regulation will not be in effect during litigation.What is interesting is that the normal situation is that the regulation would be in effect.
    Legal experts feel that this is a harbinger for the EPA and the great constitutional lawyers defeat if this case should make it to the SCOTUS.

    Essentially the Supreme Court issued an injunction on the regulation. While there are cases pending, it's not unusual for higher courts to do that. Otherwise each of the following cases could or would be open for review by the supreme Court.
    They are withholding their decision for an outcome on the lower courts decisions.

    While the higher courts decision is notable, it's nothing to get excited about for either side.

    Actually it is unusual for SCOTUS to issue and injunction on something like this. That's done mostly at the lower level. The admin decided to take it to the next level.

    Your right it is unusual even the Obama administration noted that.This case will likely not be heard before Obama leaves office.Depending on who is the next president the case could be dropped all together.
