On Wednesday, the Supreme Court will hear a case in which Massachusetts, ten other states, and a handful of environmental groups challenge the Bush administration’s refusal to implement policies that curb carbon dioxide emissions.

The Clean Cars Campaign has posted a summary (including links to the briefs of petitioners and respondents) that provides a straightforward explanation of the legal case. It also lays out specific questions the court will answer, the actions that may be required by the administration, and what is at risk for the climate, the government, and the automobile industry.

The briefing and the Clean Cars Campaign’s primer are extremely useful tools in understanding the court case and its implications. How sad that saving the climate has come to this: Suing the Administration to adopt genuine climate solutions, rather than the administration pursuing genuine climate solutions on its own.
