U.S. top court mostly upholds Obama bid to curb carbon emissions

By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday trimmed the Obama administration’s power to curb greenhouse gases under a long-running air pollution program in a decision that means major facilities, including power plants and refineries, will go on being regulated as they have been. On a 7-2 vote, the court rejected an industry-backed argument that most emitting facilities should not be regulated for greenhouse gases under one particular air pollution program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Some landfills, pulp and paper facilities, electronics manufacturing plants, chemical production plants and beverage producers would be among the small industrial sources that would likely be exempted, according to an EPA spokesman.
