The Supreme Court Hamstrung the EPA. Congress Must Act!

462 so far! Let’s get to 500 signers!

I’m furious that the Supreme Court has handed America’s energy future over to fossil fuel interests. In its ruling yesterday 6 conservative justices said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, created by a bipartisan Congress to protect Americans’ health and the environment from pollution, cannot protect Americans from pollution, namely carbon pollution that causes climate change. This decision yanks the rug out from clean energy entrepreneurs, innovators, and workers, who built businesses and technologies founded on the promise of clean energy the court just threw out the window.  This matters to all of us. None of us are exempt from the horrific impacts of climate change, let alone polluted air and water. The Supreme Court is quite literally killing us. The Court’s decision also endangers the economics of clean energy. As a result, the decision likely will raise energy costs for families and force them to continue subsidizing dirty, unreliable energy like oil and gas. Plus, now it will be harder for communities to switch to clean, secure renewable energy like wind and solar. That’s really bad, especially when inflation is already taking a bite out of paychecks.  Congress must act. Legislative investments may be the only tool America has to unleash clean energy manufacturing and jobs in the U.S. and deliver the clean, renewable energy Americans want. Do something, now. We need aggressive climate action—we also need action to rein in this out-of-control, pro-business, anti-American Supreme Court!
