Supreme Court Gone Wild!

As usual, Slate's Supreme Court reporter nails the story down. My favorite bit is this one, about the EPA's argument that it shouldn't regulate CO2 emissions:

"Now, maybe it's because I have a toddler at home, but the EPA's argument, presented by Deputy Solicitor General Gregory Garre, quickly sounds very familiar. 1) I can't clean it up; 2) Even if I could, I don't want to clean it up; 3) You can't make me clean it up; and 4) China is making an even bigger mess. How come China never has to clean it up? When and if all that fails, the EPA, like my son, just puts its hands over its eyes and says there is no mess in the first place."

Sigh. The author, Dalia Lithwick, concludes by summing up the government's position as "we're all going to die, anyway." Which leads me to my position on the government's position:

We're all going to die. Thanks, guys.
