    Default AOC calls Supreme Court EPA ruling on power plant emissions 'catastrophic'

    Progressive New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said that the Supreme Court's decision on the Clean Air Act is "catastrophic."
    In a Thursday morning tweet, the Democratic firebrand and climate justice advocate swiped at the Supreme Court.

    "Catastrophic. A filibuster carveout is not enough," Ocasio-Cortez wrote. "We need to reform or do away with the whole thing, for the sake of the planet."

    In a 6-3 decision authored by Chief Justice John Roberts, the Supreme Court ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) lacked broad statutory authority to curb greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

    At issue in West Virginia v. EPA was whether, under the Clean Air Act, Congress constitutionally authorized the EPA to implement regulations on states to reduce carbon dioxide pollution by moving away from coal-fired power plants to other forms of energy.

    "Capping carbon dioxide emissions at a level that will force a nationwide transition away from the use of coal to generate electricity may be a sensible 'solution to the crisis of the day.' But it is not plausible that Congress gave EPA the authority to adopt on its own such a regulatory scheme in Section 111(d). A decision of such magnitude and consequence rests with Congress itself, or an agency acting pursuant to a clear delegation from that representative body."

    And?

    It is. The libs weren't the only ones who lost. Homo sapiens in general didn't win this one.

    Corporate polluters getting free reign from the courts seems like a weird thing to gloat about.

    Conservatives will end up on the wrong side of history when it comes to our environment.

    But liberals really aren't that much better. I totally wish it was a non-partisan issue. I'd think it would be something that we could all find common ground on.

    But it's totally political now. And it's kind of too late. What's gonna happen is gonna happen at this point. And it won't be that pretty.

    Constitutional checks on her power cannot be tolerated.
    Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but rather we have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
    - -- Aristotle

    Believe nothing on the faith of traditions, even though they have been held in honor for many generations and in diverse places. Do not believe a thing because many people speak of it. Do not believe on the faith of the sages of the past. Do not believe what you yourself have imagined, persuading yourself that a God inspires you. Believe nothing on the sole authority of your masters and priests. After examination, believe what you yourself have tested and found to be reasonable, and conform your conduct thereto.
    - -- The Buddha

    So far, the Left has been. I don't think that'll change any time soon either.

    Hey, you guys won. I'll concede. The environment will suck, women's rights will be back in the dark ages, LGBTQ will have to keep hiding, no one will believe election results anymore or concede elections.

    Yay you. America is going to be such an awesome place now.

    Hyperbole much? How "awesome" is an America with runaway inflation, gas nobody can afford, homes nobody can afford, rents nobody can afford, a shitty public school system that puts indoctrination ahead of education, a political class bent on taking away every right you have? That's what the fucking Leftists are doing right now to America.
