I Prayed have prayed
Father, we thank You for yet another favorable ruling. Thank you for raising up a Supreme Court that is holding our country accountable to the law and the Constitution.

As the current administration is pushing a strong climate change narrative, the SCOTUS limited the power of the EPA.

From 6abc. The Supreme Court on Thursday limited the Environmental Protection Agency’s power to fight climate change.

Who is praying on the wall?

 

The case involved how far the federal government could go in regulating greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

The court held that Congress did not grant EPA in Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act the authority to devise emissions caps based on the generation shifting approach the Agency took in the Clean Power Plan, with Chief Justice John Roberts writing for the 6-3 conservative majority.

Roberts wrote that the only question before the court was “whether the ‘best system of emission reduction’ identified by EPA in the Clean Power Plan was within the authority granted to the Agency in Section 111(d) of the Clean Air Act. For the reasons given, the answer is no….”

The landmark Clean Air Act of 1970 charged EPA with protecting human health from dangerous airborne contaminants, which the Supreme Court has twice affirmed to include greenhouse gasses.

The law currently lets the agency craft pollution limits based on the “best system of emission reduction” available, but there is disagreement over whether the law prohibits consideration of measures “outside the fence line” of a particular plant, such as shifting to alternative sources of power generation or emission trading programs….

The U.S. power sector is the nation’s second-largest source of greenhouse gas emissions with more than 3,300 fossil fuel-fired power plants, including 284 coal-fired facilities, according to the Energy Information Agency….

The plaintiffs in the case — a coalition of Republican-led states and coal and mining companies — argued that overly-aggressive EPA regulation threatens to “reshape the power grids and seize control over electricity production nationwide,” imperiling thousands of American jobs….

The Supreme Court decided the case even though EPA does not currently have a power plant carbon dioxide regulation in force….

Are you thankful for this ruling? If so, share this article with your friends and family!

First of all there is no climate change crisis. That was made up based on nebulous conjecture in order to control this free nation. We must continue to pray that because of God’s Grace the truth will be revealed.

This is also a victory for the constitution and the restoration of checks and balances is our goverernement with the executive, legislative and judicial branches. The judicial branch is being restored to its orgininal intent of interpreting and not maiking laws. This ruling stopped and checked the executive branch the overstepping power of making laws which is suppose to be the function of the legislative body. Isaiah 33:22 writes “For the LOrd is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king.” The biblical principle of this verse was put into our constitution and is the formula for three functions of government staying in their right lanes necessary for healthy governance. I declare and decgree we will keep our constitutional republic. Marxist and communistic forces are bound across America and the govermaent of God which was put into the Constitution and Bill of rights is and will be preserverved for the posterity of future generations. The Mayflower compact is in the DNA of America. No King but Jesus.
