Politico seems worried that SCOTUS’ decision on climate change could weaken the president’s power to oversee American life

Politico was ridiculed for concerns that upcoming Supreme Court rulings could limit executive power in a Sunday article.
Politico’s article “How SCOTUS’ Next Climate Decision Could Defend Washington” was concerned with the West Virginia v. EPA case that focuses on whether the Environmental Protection Agency can issue rules on the nation’s power grids without the authority of Congress. If the Supreme Court rules in favor of West Virginia, Politico notes, it could have a significant impact on the Biden administration’s climate change efforts.
“The Supreme Court is expected to issue a ruling this month hampering the Biden administration’s efforts to curb climate change — but its impact could weaken the executive branch’s power to oversee large swathes of American life,” wrote Politico on Twitter.
In the article, Politico clarified that the EPA case could also “unravel” the regulatory state established by the New Deal.

“The Supreme Court and several Republican-appointed justices have invoked the same principle repeatedly over the past year to overturn a series of Biden administration responses to the coronavirus pandemic. EPA case only gives an aggressive version of this thinking – unraveling much of the state of regulation as it has existed since the New Deal,” the article stated.
Politico also quoted Georgetown University law professor Lawrence Gostin as saying, “A narrow reading of what federal agencies can do will literally prevent the federal government from taking action to protect the health, safety and the environment of Americans.
The decision on the case is expected to be announced this month

The Tories ridiculed Politico’s concern that the executive could lose more power following the Supreme Court ruling.
The Federalist’s editor, David Harsanyi, tweeted: ‘It’s always amazing how little political stories wrestle with the constitutionality of these issues – which is the court’s job, even though you know it barely. They just don’t care.”
“And now we return to our regular fear campaign about Our Democracy,” Townhall columnist Kurt Schlichter wrote.
“Don’t threaten me with a good time,” Republican broadcaster Matt Whitlock tweeted.
