Well, you knew this was coming.

After the Supreme Court’s decision that limited the executive branch’s power in making large-scale environmental regulations, liberal lawmakers and media personalities went into full-on melt down mode.

Democratic Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) called it “catastrophic.”

“Catastrophic. A filibuster carveout is not enough. We need to reform or do away with the whole thing, for the sake of the planet,” the congresswoman tweeted.

“Our planet is on fire, and this extremist Supreme Court has destroyed the federal government’s ability to fight back. This radical Supreme Court is increasingly facing a legitimacy crisis, and we can’t let them have the last word,” said Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA).

“Run out of words to describe this court, but, among other things, it’s now a threat to the planet,” wrote MSNBC’s Chris Hayes.

Former President Barack Obama tweeted about the urgency of the Court’s decision. “No challenge poses a greater threat to our future than a changing climate. Every day, we’re feeling the impact of climate change, and today’s Supreme Court decision is a major step backward.”

“The Supreme Court has gone rogue. We are in a full-blown Constitutional crisis. Congress must act. And we must pressure Congress to act, while it still can. #TheMajority,” tweeted author Heather Cox Richardson.

“Minority rule in the United States is a threat to life on earth,” wrote author Kate Aronoff.

ABC White House correspondent Mary Alice Parks tweeted fearfully, “Who is going to save the planet?”

From Fox News…

The Court dealt the progressives and the climate change agenda a blow with its highly anticipated decision in the West Virginia v. EPA case. The 6-3 decision ruled “that the Environmental Protection Agency cannot pass sweeping regulations that could overhaul entire industries without additional congressional approval,” Fox Business reported.

In the Court’s opinion, Chief Justice John Roberts claimed, “it is not plausible that Congress gave EPA the authority to adopt on its own such a regulatory scheme.” He added that such regulatory power “rests with Congress itself, or an agency acting pursuant to a clear delegation from that representative body.”
