Term limits on SCOTUS is the only thing that will save us DOWN THE ROAD.

We're screwed six ways to Sunday until then.

Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for the majority, said that Congress had not explicitly given the EPA the authority to regulate emissions as it designed the Clean Power Plan to do.

To a regressive, nothing exists for any circumstance unless it is spelled out in bold, large type.

Intent?
Inference?
Context?

Those are for losers, apparently.

As I said last week...

Dismantling anything that gets in the way of increasing their [the plutocrats] wealth: environmental regulations, product safety, minimum wages, consumer protection, banking regulations, etc.

Even weirder still, the Biden administration actually hasn’t introduced its replacement policy yet—there’s currently no EPA regulation of the power sector actively on the books. Usually, Supreme Court cases are based around an actual policy or piece of regulation that is in play, but this case is based on the idea of what the agency is able to do under the Clean Air Act. The fact that the conservative Court took up this case against a theoretical policy and ruled in favor of the plaintiffs signals that it is more willing to take an active hand in dismantling federal agencies’ ability to regulate than the role the judicial branch would normally play.

ArtIII.S2.C1.2.6.1 Ripeness Doctrine: Overview

Article III, Section 2, Clause 1:

The Judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;—to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;—to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction; to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;—to Controversies between two or more States; between a State and Citizens of another State; between Citizens of different States,—between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects.


Like the other justiciability doctrines,1 the ripeness doctrine defines the limits of a federal court's jurisdiction to adjudicate certain disputes.2 Ripeness concerns “the timing of judicial intervention,” and prevents federal courts “from entangling themselves in abstract disagreements” by adjudicating disputes too early.3 ( “[N]o one is entitled to judicial relief for a supposed or threatened injury until the prescribed administrative remedy has been exhausted.” ) (quoting McKart v. United States, 395 U.S. 185, 193 (1969)); Dalton v. Specter, 511 U.S. 462, 469 (1994) (holding that, as a general matter, only “final agency action[s]” are subject to judicial review under the Administrative Procedure Act) (quoting 5 U.S.C. § 704).

Why even wait for a case? Just rule ex cathedra on all your favorite issues, like a king.

Really.

"...this case is based on the idea of what the agency is able to do..."

They might as well just schedule a hearing for each Cabinet agency and basically tell them what the Court is going to allow them to do.

I'm more glad than ever I decided not to procreate.

So long, and thanks for all the (dead) fish.

Root cause.. Congress passing the buck for 50 years.

Kill the filibuster NOW. Get actual LAWS passed and into US Code to keep us alive, protect freedoms, protect personal autonomy, and get the damn religious fascists OUT of our government.

It may not be as bad as it sounds, but probably not a good thing:

IMO, the bit thats most concerning about this is that - at least to me - it sounds like it should have been thrown out due to lack of standing.
