What you need to know, currently.

In just a few days, a decision in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency will be made. This decision is crucial in the fight against climate change, as it challenges EPA’s authority to regulate carbon dioxide emissions.

More than a dozen Republican attorneys general are working with two coal companies to limit EPA’s rule-making in regulating power plant emissions and instead, have this power lie in the hands of Congress. If this happens, it will be much harder to hold powerful producers accountable for their pollution and shift the power sector towards clean energy.

To put it plainly, this case has the potential to fundamentally change the Biden Administration’s ability to mitigate the effects of climate change and prevent it all together.
