“The Court acknowledges only that, under our Constitution, the people’s elected representatives in Congress are the decisionmakers here—and they have not clearly granted the agency the authority it claims for itself.” -JUSTICE GORSUCH

Contrary to the assumption that the EPA is protecting the environment from air pollution is the fact that programs such as the Federal Weather Enterprise has disabled the agency from functioning for many years:

States have the power and the responsibility to enact strong laws to tackle pollution.
