Law’s Jonathan Adler discussed the EPA post-Supreme Court decision

Supreme Court muzzles EPA on climate

Jonathan Adler

E&E News: Jonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law and director of the Coleman P. Burke Center for Environmental Law, said that the Environmental Protection Agency should take note of the Supreme Court’s language when the agency works on other pollution rules that may have climate benefits. “If I’m a lawyer in the EPA’s general counsel’s office,” he said, “I am scrubbing every document, every speech, every talking point to make sure that any climate benefits are ancillary, secondary and, oh, yes, we get that, too, and not say anything that suggests that that’s the reason for the policy.”
