Supremes Halt Obama's Global Warming Plan

Say carbon emission plans must be put on hold

The Supreme Court hasn't ruled that the Obama administration can push its global warming agenda -- yet. 

According to the Associated Press, the highest court in the land ruled Tuesday that the president's plan to deal with greenhouse gases cannot be enforced until opposing arguments are heard:

The surprising move on Tuesday is a blow to the administration and a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations "an unprecedented power grab."

By temporarily freezing the rule the high court's order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.

Now that the lower court escalated the matter to the Supreme Court, arguments will be heard beginning June 2. With ample time to prepare, opposing arguments should cause real trouble for the administration.
