Supreme Court Sides Against Bush In Monumental Global Warming Case

Think Progress

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court today issued a "stunning rebuke" to the Bush administration and "ruled that the federal government does indeed have authority to regulate greenhouse gases linked to global warming."

Frank O'Donnell of Clean Air Watch writes, "The Supreme Court has confirmed that carbon dioxide can be controlled under the Clean Air Act. That means California and other states have the clear right to limit greenhouse gas emissions if the Bush administration won't."

Just for fun, write down on a piece of paper who you think the four dissenters were. You're right.
