A challenge by several states to the federal government’s refusal to regulate greenhouse-gas emissions was rebuffed last week by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. On Friday, the en banc court, in declining to rehear the case, reaffirmed a July ruling that concluded the Environmental Protection Agency does not have to regulate emissions of the greenhouse gases that can cause global warming. A dozen states and a handful of cities and environmental groups had asked the full court to rehear the case. The EPA said it did not have authority to regulate the gases because they were not defined as “pollutants.” Judges David Tatel, Judith Rogers, and Thomas Griffith voted in favor of another hearing. In a spirited dissent, which Rogers joined, Tatel said global warming is an issue of “exceptional importance.”
