3. This is disinformation

That is not at all what the Court held.

Their holding was bad enough, but this summation is wrong and thus not helpful.

5. The case should never been brought up.

The regulation was not in effect so there was no damage to the company.
This is a pre-emptive strike on the government's ability to regulate.

6. Not under current law, in any case.

However, as I understand it, Congress can give EPA that power. SCOTUS ruled that it hasn't yet done so.
