Daily Roundup: June 20, 2011

EPA Trumps: The Supreme Court told six states trying to shut down power plants that they were in the wrong place — the court refused to usurp the EPA's authority. New York Times

Men on Wheels: Cycling is far more popular than it was 20 years ago, but in the U.S., new devotees are mostly men. Women may fear high traffic or sweaty work clothes — or maybe they just need a new kind of bike. Grist

Bearing Weight: A New York state bill would require large-scale water users to obtain permits before withdrawing 100,000 gallons a day, a law to help the state better monitor water use. New York Times

Good and Gross: Scientists in Spain found that fly larvae can be used en masse to eliminate organic waste on an industrial scale — is a combination biofactory-biodigester the future of the dump? ScienceDaily

Self-Generation: Two-thirds of NYC’s roofs are suitable for solar panels and, if all those were equipped, the Big Apple could supply itself with 50% of its energy needs during peak hours. TreeHugger
