Supreme Court examines cross-state air pollution

Supreme Court examines cross-state air pollution thumbnail

As the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday (Feb. 21) held oral arguments on the legality of the Environmental Protection Agency’s “good neighbor” policy to limit upwind states from polluting downwind states, two legal constructs dominated the discussion: “severability” and the court’s “emergency docket.” The case is “Ohio et al v. EPA” brought by several states and joined by Kinder Morgan natural gas firm, the American Forest & Paper Association, and U.S. Steel.

Severability refers to provisions that allow the remainder of legislation to remain in effect if parts of its other provisions are dropped or found illegal. Emergency applications are cases that petitioners bring to the high court, bypassing lower court action.

The case before the court involves an environmental issue dating back nearly 20 years. What action can EPA take when pollution from an upwind state – Ohio, for example – which has an EPA approved “state implementation plan” to reduce ozone-causing oxides of nitrogen from power plants or steel mills nevertheless puts a downwind state – such as Connecticut – out of compliance?

The George W. Bush, Obama, and Biden administrations have all wrestled with the difficult question, as has the Supreme Court. According to a Harvard Law history, the cross-state ozone issue has been litigated some 90 times in the federal courts since first EPA first attempted regulations in 2005.

    I hope they have a back up plan to deal with natural resources depletion. Because I don’t have a plan to deal with natural resources depletion.

Eventually some people somewhere will start to panic and will make firearm available to man like me so we go out and start killing people. Most likely man like me will refuse to do the dirty work for you. I told you it was a big mistake to make these restrictives handguns laws. This might be the biggest mistake ever made on earth.

    The is why the Jews had to take control of the US from the inside. Jews are communists that are just extracting of wealth and labor. They contribute nothing and have nothing to offer.

    I remember now, I was not able to find underwear. The biggest size I could find was XL and they were too small. Some thing happen and people got smaller, thinner and weaker. I have been making my own clothes for the last 10 year. I started to make my own clothes way before COVID. In the last 10 year I also got bigger, but now my size is stable.

    I can tell by looking at some videos that you are not able to find where these immigrants are coming from. They don’t have a flesh body, they are on earth for judgment and execution. they are a electromagnetic signature.

    It is guarantee that I will collect your cadavers.
