This judgment by the United States Supreme Court could jeopardize Biden’s climate strategy.

This week, the US Supreme Court heard oral arguments in a contentious dispute that might derail President Joe Biden’s climate-change strategy.

Climate activists held a rally outside the Supreme Court as the justices heard arguments in the case West Virginia vs. Environmental Protection Agency.

The action has the potential to not only block the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from regulating future greenhouse-gas emissions but also to redefine the regulatory powers of other US agencies, depending on how the court rules.

The rare case is based on a years-long court battle between the Obama and Trump administrations over two EPA programs that aimed to regulate power plant emissions in opposite ways.

Both policies were never implemented, which distinguishes this case: typically, the Supreme Court would refuse to consider regulatory matters in which there is no regulation to debate.

In a statement released following the hearings this week, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey, a Republican, stated, “This is not about blocking climate-change measures.” “Our country’s future is on the line. “Who chooses the major issues of the day will be determined by this case.”

It is seen by the Biden EPA and its supporters, particularly environmentalists and public-health advocates, as a brazen attempt to limit the government’s role over industry and pollution management.

Sean Donahue, a lawyer with Donahue, Goldberg & Littleton in Washington DC, who represents the group weighing in on behalf of the EPA, said. “The arguments being brought here really are astonishing in terms of trying to limit the government’s authority to safeguard public health and welfare,”
