Environmentalists, conservatives, the commerce clause, and 'results'

This diary on dKos about Alito isn’t all that great. It does, however, confirm what Amanda’s article described: The basic bone environmentalists have to pick with Alito, and with conservative jurists in general, has to do with the Commerce Clause, which empowers Congress “to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes.” (I’m not a lawyer or a law scholar, so take all that follows with a large grain of salt.)
