Statement of U.S. Bishops’ Chairman for Domestic Justice and Human Development on Supreme Court’s Climate Regulation Ruling
Posted on 07/1/2022 08:30 AM (USCCB News Releases)
WASHINGTON - On June 30, the Supreme Court of the United States issued a 6-3 decision in a case that limits the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its power to regulate greenhouse gases. In response to the Court’s decision in West Virginia v. EPA, Archbishop Paul S. Coakley of Oklahoma City, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ (USCCB) Committee on Domestic Justice and Human Development issued the following statement:
“The Catholic bishops of the United States have long-supported the EPA’s ability to regulate greenhouse gases in order to address climate change. As we said in 2018, the EPA has ‘both the statutory authority and responsibility to take regulatory action… It is hard to foresee a scenario, under current economic and technological conditions, in which the EPA faithfully carries out its mandate to protect the public health from greenhouse gases without significantly affecting political and economic realities.’
“We are, therefore, disappointed today that following the Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Clean Air Act the EPA will have significantly restricted authority to regulate greenhouse gases from power plants. Both reasonable regulation and legislation are critical for addressing the threat and challenges of climate change. We call upon Congress to give the EPA the necessary authority to meaningfully regulate greenhouse gases.”
