President Bush's Environmental Protection Agency claimed that, despite the Clean Air Act, it didn't have the authority to combat the greenhouse gases that cause global warming. And even it did, it didn't feel like it.

Bush's Supreme Court justices John Roberts and Sam Alito agreed, along with veteran conservative activist judges Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas.

But the conservative movement has not yet fully taken over the Supreme Court.
