Clearing the Air

The US Supreme Court ruled in favor of the EPA on regulating coal pollution.  Somewhat surprising was that it was a 6-2 vote w/ Alito recusing himself.  Unsurprisingly the 2 dissenting were Scalia and Thomas.  Roberts is turning out to be an interesting justice.  Definitely conservative, but not the anti-liberal type Scalia and Thomas are.  Lots of other important cases are going to be coming out.  I hope he continues to be more reasonable than I expect.  Especially since I think Kennedy might be more likely to go that route as well if he has another conservative to follow.
