Will the Supreme Court Restrict EPA’s Authority to Address Climate Change?

In this room — this bureaucratic tedious room — the fate of the whole planet is decided. (From an article in The Atlantic describing an appellate court hearing on a challenge to EPA climate change regulations — an issue now before the Supreme Court.)

An update: On June 30, 2022, the Supreme Court decided the case, West Virginia v. EPA, in a 6–3 decision reflecting conservative and liberal ideologies. The decision is consistent with the analysis anticipated in my analysis and limits the regulatory instruments EPA has available to address climate change.
