This is a long email about this morning's Supreme Court decision in the case West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). We hope you'll take a few minutes to read about what it means for our movement's fight for climate justice, and then, add your name to Ed's petition in support of expanding the Supreme Court.

Here are the basics:

West Virginia v. EPA challenged the federal government's authority to force fossil-fueled power generators to cut down on greenhouse gases and climate pollution using the Clean Air Act. In doing so, the Court's decision against the EPA fundamentally shows that it is willing to usurp and undermine federal agencies' authority to enforce any regulations on emissions.

But it's not just the EPA or clean air and water under threat.

The right wing's ultimate goal is to roll back the authority that Congress and the courts have delegated to federal agencies on the idea that experts in the fields of the environment, health care, technology, finance, and more are the ones best-equipped to interpret ambiguous laws about those fields.

This could be used to threaten the function of any number of government agencies — the Department of Energy, the Department of Labor, the CDC, the FDA, the FCC, OSHA — the list goes on.

Once again, the stolen and illegitimate Supreme Court of the United States has pushed their minority-rule agenda to do the exact opposite of what the American people want.

We can't overstate how much an impact this court ruling could have on our movement's fight for climate justice, or the ripple effects it could cause for our entire progressive agenda.

The solution is simple, and it's one that Ed has been calling for time and time again — we must expand the Supreme Court.

We cannot allow the right wing to have the last word on our basic freedoms or the core issues that we care about. From abortion rights to civil rights to environmental rights, we must fight back.

That's why we're asking you to make your voice heard today: Can you add your name to Ed's petition in support of expanding the Supreme Court? [[link removed]]

As always, thank you for being a part of our movement, and for adding your support today.

In solidarity,

Team Markey
