United States: the Supreme Court limits the means of the federal state to fight against global warming – Le Figaro

-

After strengthening the right to bear arms and after challenging the right to abort, the Supreme Court on Thursday severely limited the means available to the federal state to fight against greenhouse gases. The very conservative Supreme Court of the United States on Thursday June 30 limited the means of the federal state to fight against greenhouse gases, a decision which could have a heavy impact on global warming.

But it is not plausible that Congress gave the EPA the authority to adopt such a measure, ”wrote the judge John Roberts in this judgment. “Today, the Court stripped the Environmental Protection Agency of the power Congress gave it to address ‘the most pressing issue of our time,'” Judge Elena Kagan said in a separate argument. on behalf of progressives, recalling that the six hottest years have been recorded in the last decade. The judgment was immediately welcomed by several Republican governors behind the legal proceedings, but deemed “catastrophic” by the elected Democrat of the House of Representatives Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

US President Joe Biden “will not hesitate to use his powers under the law to protect public health and address the climate change crisis,” according to a short statement released to the press. The UN condemns this judgment The Secretary General of the UN, Antonio Guterres, ruled Thursday through the voice of a spokesperson, that the judgment of the American Supreme Court marked a “setback” in the fight against the crisis. environmental. “We can say that this is a setback in our fight against climate change, when we are already very behind in achieving the objectives of the Paris agreement” adopted in 2015, notes the door- speech in a press release. “But we must also remember that an emergency of such a global nature as climate change requires a global response, and that the actions of any one nation should not and cannot make or break whether or not our goals are achieved. for the climate. Donald Trump, a hostile climatosceptic After the about-face on abortion last week, this decision represents a new change of foot at the Supreme Court. In 2007, it had decided by a narrow majority that the EPA was competent to regulate the emissions of gases responsible for global warming, in the same way that it is charged by a law of the 1960s with limiting air pollution. But since then, former Republican President Donald Trump, a climatosceptic hostile to any binding measure for the industry, has brought three magistrates into the temple of American law, cementing his conservative majority (six judges out of nine). The file finds its source in an ambitious plan adopted in 2015 by Barack Obama to reduce CO2 emissions. This “Clean Power Plan”, whose implementation fell to the EPA, had been blocked before coming into force. In 2019, Donald Trump published his own “Affordable Clean Energy Rule”, limiting the scope of the EPA’s action within each electricity production site, without authorizing it to remodel the entire network. A federal court having invalidated this draft, several conservative states and the coal industry asked the Supreme Court to intervene and clarify the powers of the EPA. The government of Democrat Joe Biden had made it known that it did not intend to resurrect Barack Obama’s plan and had asked the High Court to declare the file null and void.
