June 20, 2011
The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday upheld a petition by industry which sought to reverse a lower court ruling allowing states to litigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emission policies on the grounds cross-border GHGs create a public nuisance. The 8-0 decision by the justices was a victory for industry groups and was widely expected after justices expressed skepticism about the states’ position during oral arguments last April. Industry representatives welcomed the high court’s decision as “logical and just” saying it should “send a signal to those attempting to used arcane legal rules to advance their political agendas.” Environmental groups say the decision underscores EPA’s responsibility to regulate GHG emissions under the Clean Air Act....

May 9, 2011
The European Commission has adopted a draft decision on how free-of-charge emission allowances should be allocated from 2013 to industrial installations covered by the European Union's (EU) Emissions Trading System (ETS). Most ETS emission allowances will be bought at auction starting in 2013, but a proportion of free allowances will continue to be given to industry until 2020 to reduce costs for installations in sectors deemed to be exposed to significant competition from outside the EU. These include a number of chemical industry sectors. The commission's decision sets out the rules, including the benchmarks of greenhouse gas emissions performance, to be used by EU member states when calculating the number of allowances to be allocated for free annually in the exposed sectors....

March 14, 2011
A House Energy and Commerce Committee panel has passed a bill that would prevent EPA from regulating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions using its existing Clean Air Act authority. The bill, introduced by Representative Fred Upton (R., MI), would change a legal precedent set in 2007 by the U.S. Supreme Court. Senator James Inhofe (R., OK) has introduced a similar bill in the Senate. The bills are an attempt by House and Senate Republicans to provide a remedy for one of industry’s biggest regulatory concerns this year—that permit and other requirements stemming from EPA’s GHG regulations will create legal uncertainties, stymie growth, and discourage investment in the U.S....
