New Supreme Court Decision Slams The Brakes On Biden’s Climate Change Agenda

The United States Supreme Court has just handed down another decision that is already driving the left positively bonkers.

In a nutshell, the court ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency doesn’t have the authority to regulate greenhouse gasses.

This throws a major wrench into the left’s grand plans.

Once again, the SCOTUS is returning power to the people.

Naturally, Democrats hate the decision.
