The high court will review a lower court's upholding of the EPA's ability to regulate greenhouse gases in power plants and factories. The EPA's authority, granted under the Clean Air Act, is an effort to stave off climate catastrophe and its upheaval would put Congress in charge of figuring out how to curb dangerous emissions.

Oh Lord! Climate Change Denial Reaches New Lows After Wall Street Journal Op-Ed

Oh Lord! Climate Change Denial Reaches New Lows After Wall Street Journal Op-Ed
A recent error-filled opinion piece by Matt Ridley in the Wall Street Journal was so egregious that readers deserve a correction.
