Advocates Demand Congressional Action on Climate Change After the U.S. Supreme Court Limits the Environmental Protection Agency’s Power

Environmental advocates gathered outside the Supreme Court to protest its decision in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency—and to urge Congress to take action on climate change.

Environmental advocates gathered outside the U.S. Supreme Court on June 30, 2022, to protest its decision in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency. The MAGA-majority court sharply curtailed the EPA’s ability to limit climate pollution from power plants. Advocates explain how this ruling is a gift to fossil fuel companies and further endangers lives and communities as people experience the devastation of the climate crisis. They also urge Congress to not waste time in making bold investments in clean energy and environmental justice.
