"Green Groups Vow War Over Trump’s Climate Rollback"

"Environmentalists and their allies are pledging to go to war against President Trump’s efforts to roll back his predecessor’s climate change agenda.

While litigation is likely to be the chief tool that greens and Democrats use to keep former President Obama’s policies alive, they’re also planning to fight against Trump in the court of public opinion.

The Tuesday order itself has little effect. But it kicks off the process of undoing Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which limits greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector. It also starts to undo the emissions limits for new power plants, methane release regulations for oil and natural gas drilling, the moratorium on new coal-mining leasing on federal land and more."
