The U S Supreme Court Monday placed some limits on the Environmental Protection Agency's global warming rules. A majority of the justices said the EPA lacks authority in some cases to force businesses to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. The decision doesn't affect the EPA proposals for first time national standards for new and existing power plants. Under the latest ruling, the high court says the EPA can still require permits for greenhouse gas emissions for those facilities which already have to obtain permits because they emit other pollutants which the EPA already regulates.
