Supreme Court to Bush: "Oh Yes You Can!"

The Supreme Court has ordered the federal government to take a fresh look at regulating carbon dioxide emissions from cars, a rebuke to Bush administration policy on global warming.

As a result of today’s landmark ruling, EPA can no longer hide behind the fiction that it lacks any regulatory authority to address the problem of global warming.”

The case was led by the State of Masschusetts along with 11 other States.
