Today's court decision April 2, 2007 : 5:47 PM

Although solving the climate crisis clearly demands that Congress pass bold legislation, today's Supreme Court decision makes it clear that the Bush administration could act right away to cut global warming pollution. The court, in their 5-4 decision, made it very clear that the current Clean Air Act allows the Environmental Protection Agency to regulate carbon dioxide -- the principle gas that causes global warming.

It's a shame the Bush administration sought to limit its own authority to cut global warming pollution by fighting against this case.
