Justice Roberts has lost enough face after his first pro-Obama ruling that he won't want to go down in American history as the biggest chump ever. Judgement: plaintiffs.

Please stop referring to 'climate change ' and 'global warming' as if they are facts. They are not. A fact is something beyond dispute, while these alleged phenomena are hotly disputed by scientists on both sides.

Thank Heaven that someone can save us from the Imperial Power that has been granted to the President.

There is little doubt how the liberal Justices will vote. They will take the short term view of supporting every Obama initiative. Hopefully the mature adults on the court will see the problems with excessive executive branch over reach that has occurred under both democrat and republican presidents.

The EPA should be the ones concerned. If the president can act like this who needs these government run beauracracies? Let them eat cake.

The C of C thinks the EPA's regulatory response is an economic burden. Well, yes - That is true in the historical context of energy companies being allowed to pollute, thereby kicking the can down the road for future generations to fix.

The EPA was established to limit toxic waste. Now greenhouse gas is theirs too. Don't object if they limit agriculture irrigation on the idea it releases H2O which also a greenhouse gas. Once the Supreme Court opens the door there is no stopping. I'd feel better if Congress expressly told EPA to limit CO2..... instead of global warming = bad = toxic = CO2 must come down. The same logic says water vapor can be regulated also.

Clean air and clean water are over rated. The really important things are energy companies profits.

More presidential overreach. The EPA has turned into a political arm of whomever is president and should be eliminated. It should be then replaced by an Environmental suggestion board, but any rules must be made by congress.

All political power should go to Republican presidents and Democratic presidents should avoid "overreaching".
