The article discusses a court case between the American Farm Bureau and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) where the court held that the EPA may not disregard findings based on insufficient evidence without adequate reasoning as it failed to update NAAQS. With uncertainties on climate change, judicial oversight will be critical to the regulation of green house gases. The holding in American Farm provides guidance for courts in reviewing EPA decisions.
