In response to a Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Mercury and Air Toxics Standards regulation, 350.org Policy Director Jason Kowalski issued the following statement:

“Today’s ruling throws public health and our climate under the bus for the sake of corporate profits. But the bottom line is: our society is transitioning off fossil fuels and onto renewables, and no number of expensive legal battles will change that. The fossil fuel industry can try as hard as it wants to swim against the tide, but especially facing the power of a growing divestment campaign and a booming renewables sector, it simply won’t win in its attempt to prevent progress.”
