[EDITORIAL] Clean Air Act and dirty coal at the Supreme Court 


The New York Times

(Editor’s note: Opinion pieces are published for discussions purposes only.)

The name of the law at issue before the Supreme Court on Wednesday is the Clean Air Act. It is not the Coal Industry Protection Act, despite what that industry’s advocates seem to want the justices to believe.

Congress passed the legislation in 1970 and substantially strengthened it in 1990 to safeguard human health from air pollution generated by power plants, vehicles, incinerators and other sources.
