Law’s Jonathan Adler notes potential challenges of new rules to curb pollution

Republican states step up legal threats to Joe Biden’s climate agenda

Financial Times (subscription required): Jonathan Adler, the Johan Verheij Memorial Professor of Law and director of the Coleman P. Burke Center for Environmental Law, noted that new rules to curb pollution are expected to face a barrage of challenges in the courts, adding that the legal onslaught is partly a result of the Biden administration issuing more climate rules than previous administrations. The administration’s use of rules to advance its agenda had opened up a “legal vulnerability,” he said, because the rules lacked specific Congressional statutes authorizing “meaningful climate regulation.”
