U.S. Chamber asks D.C. Circuit to review EPA’s Endangerment Rule reconsideration denial

August 13, 2010

NCLC asked the D.C. Circuit to review the legality of the EPA's refusal to reconsider its Endangerment Rule for greenhouse gases. NCLC's lawsuit challenges the wisdom of regulating greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act, which simply was never intended to regulate something as complex as global climate change. The EPA itself has admitted that regulating climate change under the Clean Air Act would create an 'absurd' result.

This case has been consolidated with the lawsuits brought by the Chamber and other organizations challenging the Endangerment Rule.

Petition for review filed 8/13/10. Consolidation motion filed 8/26/10. Motion for leave to file stay filed 10/29/10.
