On June 30, the Supreme Court limited the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants.

'Time' reports that the ruling delivered a significant blow to the fight against climate change.

The Court ruled that the Clean Air Act does not give the Environmental Protection Agency broad authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

According to 'Time,' power plants account for approximately 30% of carbon dioxide output.

President Joe Biden has pledged to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. in half by the end of the decade.

His ambitious goal includes having an emissions-free power sector by 2035.

.

The Supreme Court's decision could complicate the Biden administration's strategy for fighting climate change.

.

The fight against broader EPA authority to regulate carbon output was supported by prominent businesses, including Apple, Amazon, Google, Microsoft and Tesla.

.

'Time' reports that a recent United Nations panel warned that , the effects of climate change , are about to worsen.

According to the U.N.

Report, those changes will make the world sicker, hungrier, poorer and more dangerous in the near future

Lower Your Carbon Footprint by Being Mindful of These Foods

Lower Your Carbon Footprint by Being Mindful of These Foods. Every year, the Earth gets warmer and warmer due to the consistent rising of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. If you want to lower your carbon footprint and adopt a more climate-friendly diet, here are four food tips to be mindful of. 1. Cut back on red meat consumption. Dana Hunnes of UCLA Sustainability says it costs 20 to 80 gallons of water per gram of beef protein. 2. Consume less dairy products. The Environmental Protection Agency says dairy cattle contributes 1.3 percent of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. . 3. Choosing any type of produce over meat is better for the environment. . While some produce is more climate-friendly than others, Chloe Waterman of Friends of the Earth says all produce is “low-emission relative to animal products.”. 4. Unless the food is air-freighted, food miles aren’t a big deal. . Food miles, aka the distance food travels between being grown and being consumed, is not a big contributor to emissions.

EPA Is Underestimating 'Forever Chemicals' in US Water Supply, Report Suggests

EPA Is Underestimating 'Forever Chemicals' , in US Water Supply, , Report Suggests. 'The Guardian' conducted an analysis of nine water samples from locations across the U.S. The analysis suggests that the limited nature of water tests conducted by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)... . ... could mean that many "forever chemicals" in multiple U.S. water supplies are simply missed. The EPA is doing the bare minimum it can and that’s putting people’s health at risk, Kyla Bennett, Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility, via ‘The Guardian’. "Forever chemicals" refer to per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) that do not break down completely and can be toxic. The Biden administration recently acknowledged that PFAS contamination poses “a serious threat across rural, suburban and urban areas.”. $10 billion has been set aside to address the threat. The EPA responded to the report. [The EPA] continues to conduct research and monitor advances in analytical methodologies … that may improve our ability to measure more PFAS, EPA Statement, via ‘The Guardian’. Researchers say that part of the issue has to do with the extent of industry regulations over the past several decades. Industry has had a 70-year head start and we’re never going to catch up, Graham Peaslee, University of Notre Dame Researcher, via ‘The Guardian’. Public health advocates say the report makes it clear that increased testing and research is needed.
