Statement from Catholic Climate Covenant's Jose Aguto on Supreme Court's EPA Decision
We are deeply disappointed that the Supreme Court has decided not to uphold the authority of the EPA to regulate carbon dioxide emissions from power plants under the Clean Air Act. As Catholics, we are called to uphold life and the dignity of every human person. Our care for creation is an integral aspect of that call and part of a wholistic vision for human thriving. This vision includes nutritious food, safe shelter, as well as clean air, clean water and a livable climate: in short, a care for all of creation and every human person including future generations.
