The Supreme Court has blocked a key Obama administration environmental rule to limit carbon emissions from power plants.
ObamaCare and subsidizing solar panels (which necessitates penalizing cheaper energy sources) have been cornerstones of the President's tenure. His plan was to force carbon emissions from power plants lower by 32% (from 2005 levels) before 2030 and he wanted it implemented now, but the Supreme Court ruled that it should be stayed while a lower court hears arguments about its legality. 30 lawsuits have been filed and the court agreed to the stay because they were convinced by arguments that power plants would need to shut down now or be in violation of federal law, which would have meant a lot of poor people without energy.
