President Obama meets Italian President Mattarella in WashingtonBy Lawrence Hurley and Valerie Volcovici WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday delivered a major blow to President Barack Obama by putting on hold federal regulations to curb carbon dioxide emissions mainly from coal-fired power plants, the centerpiece of his administration's strategy to combat climate change. The court voted 5-4 along ideological lines to grant a request by 27 states and various companies and business groups to block the administration's Clean Power Plan, which also mandates a shift to renewable energy from coal-fired electricity. The plan was designed to lower carbon emissions from U.S. power plants by 2030 to 32 percent below 2005 levels.
