SCOTUS Says Yes to Coal Emissions

This week, the United States' Supreme Court issued a stay on President Obama's regulations for emissions from coal-fired power plants. The repercussions of this injunction effect policy both nationally and internationally. Representatives of the coal-industry say that Obama's executive orders are destroying the economy of 29 states. Environmental activists say the Supreme Court's stay casts doubt on the promises made by the U.S. during the Paris climate talks.
