What does the Supreme Court's decision in West Virginia v. EPA mean for the federal government's ability to regulate greenhouse gas emissions and act on climate change? On July 6, 2022, Georgetown Climate Center convened a webinar of Clean Air Act legal experts to explore questions arising in the wake of the decision.
The webinar was attended by more than 350 participants, and a recording can be accessed here.
Discussion topics included: What does the opinion mean for EPA’s ability to require carbon emission reductions from existing power plants? What form can EPA’s forthcoming greenhouse gas regulations take? What role does the decision leave states? What does it reveal about the Court’s approach to environmental regulations going forward?
GCC Executive Director Kate Zyla provided welcome and conclusion remarks. She also separately released a statement on the Supreme Court's decision on behalf of the Climate Center.
