US | The End of Environmental Law as We Know It

Your substances


The Senate will almost certainly vote next week to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court. Because of the way she sees the role of government, her confirmation could mark the end of modern environmental law as we know it.

Several justices already on the Supreme Court have shown they are eager to constrict the power of the Environmental Protection Agency and other regulatory agencies. Confirming Coney Barrett will solidify the anti-regulatory stance of the court, making it much more likely to vote to uphold the Trump administration’s environmental rollbacks, weaken existing environmental protections and strike down future public health regulations.
