The U.S. Supreme Court agreed Monday to hear a case on whether the Bush administration should be forced to regulate carbon dioxide to fight global warming.

The decision comes after a federal appeals court ruled against the plaintiffs, which consist of states, cities and environmental groups.

At issue is the responsibilities of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The group argues that under the U.S. Clean Air Act, the EPA must enforce tighter standards on motor vehicles to limit carbon dioxide emissions. Many scientists say there is growing evidence that carbon dioxide is trapping the earth's heat and contributing to global warming.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency says that under the U.S. Clean Air Act, tighter standards on automobiles to limit co2 emissions must be enforced. But the administration argues that co2 is not a pollutant under the federal clean air law.
This should be interesting and we should keep a close eye on this case.
