RAPID CITY, S.D.(KOTA)- The Supreme Court has ruled 6-3 in favor of the state in West Virginia Vs. Environmental Protection Agency, which addressed the Clean Power Plan and the authority of the EPA to issue emission caps.
This decision has environmental activists like Jade Begay, NDN Collective climate justice director, sounding alarm bells.
Begay said meaningful climate action can be taken at the ballot box and public meetings.
Begay questioned the long-term strategy of investing in oil and gas.
Begay said the decision would likely halt the Biden Administrations 2030 carbon-reduction goals.
