En­vir­on­ment­al law­yers ex­pect the Su­preme Court to re­view the En­vir­on­ment­al Pro­tec­tion Agency’s green­house gas-re­du­cing reg­u­la­tion, E&E re­ports (re­quires a sub­scrip­tion).

The court cur­rently has nine pending pe­ti­tions ask­ing it to thwart a 2012 rul­ing al­low­ing the agency to reg­u­late green­house gases; it took no ac­tion on them Tues­day. If the court does choose to the lower-court rul­ing, its de­cision could have ma­jor rami­fic­a­tions on Pres­id­ent Obama’s planned reg­u­la­tions to com­bat cli­mate change.
