Supreme Court rules greenhouse gas is a pollutant

By a 5-4 vote, the Court said that EPA “has offered no reasoned explanation” for its refusal to regulate carbon dioxide and other emissions from new cars and trucks that contribute to climate change.

This is a huge defeat for the Bush administration, which had argued that it lacked the power to regulate such emissions, and it is expected to have far-reaching implications for regulating greenhouse gases in the United States.

Finally, a bit of sanity. The Flat Earth Society in the White House suffers a major defeat, as the light of science and logic begins to shine in.
