Statement from Catholic Climate Covenant's Jose Aguto on Supreme Court's EPA Decision

We know the emission of carbon dioxide through the burning of fossil fuels is one of the largest causes of the climate crisis. Global temperatures continue to rise, causing unprecedented droughts, heatwaves and other extreme weather events which in turn threaten the well-being of present and future generations. We must bring these emissions down. Yet today, the Supreme Court chose to limit EPA’s authority to regulate these emissions, rendering less resourced our collective imperative to care for creation and address the climate crisis.
