WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration and environmental interests generally agree that global warming is a threat that must be dealt with.

But they're on opposite sides of a Supreme Court case over the ability of states and groups such as the Audubon Society that want to sue large electric utilities and force power plants in 20 states to cut their emissions.

The administration is siding with American Electric Power Co. and three other companies in urging the high court to throw out the lawsuit. They say the Environmental Protection Agency, not a federal court, is the proper authority to make rules about climate change.

The justices will hear arguments in the case on Tuesday.
