The Supreme Court has rejected a request to prevent Biden from using the climate model

The Supreme Court rejected a request to halt President Biden's administration from using a climate change model on May 26. As soon as Biden took office, he reestablished the Interagency Working Group on the Social Cost of Greenhouse Gases, the latter part of which refers to the model that would need to be adopted. However, Ustiches denied the application for a stay without an explanation.

The order said that it was “essential” that federal agencies “capture the full costs of greenhouse gas emissions as accurately as possible, including by taking global damages into account.” Such costs, once modeled, should be included when conducting cost-benefit analyses that agencies regularly conduct, the president said at the time.
