Despite Trump’s campaign promise to “win so much, you’re going to get tired of winning,” a federal appeals court struck down his administration’s attempt to weaken limits on greenhouse gas pollution Tuesday, the latest in a litany of legal losses. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia eviscerated Trump’s Affordable Clean Energy Rule, describing it as a “fundamental misconstruction” of environmental law created through a “tortured series of misreadings” of legal statutes. EPA “may not shirk its responsibility by imagining new limitations that the plain language of the statute does not clearly require,” the judges wrote. The court declined to reinstate the Obama-era Clean Power Plan it put on hold in 2016, leaving the incoming Biden administration with a blank, if not completely clean, slate on which to craft new GHG pollution limits for power plants.
