CLEAN POWER PLAN:

Invoking Scalia, judges question whether EPA bent the law

The late Justice Antonin Scalia loomed large today as the courtroom battle over the Obama administration's Clean Power Plan kicked off. Several conservative judges suggested that Congress — not U.S. EPA — should be tasked with making major environmental policy decisions. They cited one of Scalia's last major environmental opinions as a possible frame for viewing this case, which may not bode well for the administration.

STATES:

Mass. poised to join Calif. among clean energy elite

Make room, California. Massachusetts is making a run for the top echelon of U.S. clean-energy states. In an unprecedented string of policy developments this summer, Massachusetts has embraced core elements of what experts describe as a transformational blueprint for how carbon-free electricity flows from power producers and utilities to consumers. At the same time, the state has backed technology that could sock away vast amounts of electricity to hedge against high prices and weather-related emergencies.

DEFENSE:

House chairman seeks proof climate threatens national security

One of the chief skeptics of climate change in Congress wants the White House to offer proof of its assertion that climate change is a national security threat. Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas), the chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee, wrote yesterday to national security adviser Susan Rice requesting more information about a presidential memorandum on climate and national security.

FRACKING:

Green groups urge EPA to revise study

More than 200 environmental groups have signed on to a letter urging U.S. EPA to revise its assessment that hydraulic fracturing has not led to "widespread, systemic" problems with drinking water. Food and Water Watch led the effort, implying that the key line in the draft study was born of political considerations.
