According to a press release by the Center For American Progress, “While the decision by the Supreme Court today was not based on the merits of the Clean Power Plan itself, this action by five conservative justices is yet another example of the ability of this court to make damaging decisions on politically motivated lawsuits. The Clean Power Plan is on solid legal footing and enjoys broad public support as the strongest action ever taken by the United States to address climate change and protect public health.”
