The article reports that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled last week that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) can regulate carbon dioxide emissions from new vehicles. The EPA under President George W. Bush had maintained that it doesn't have the authority to regulate carbon dioxide emissions, and even if it did, it lacked the scientific evidence to do so. That position prompted 12 states and 13 environmental groups to sue the EPA to force it to regulate greenhouse gas emissions that scientists say cause global warming. Justice John Paul Stevens wrote that the harms associated with climate change are serious and well recognized.
