President Trump has signed a sweeping executive order aimed to undo multiple climate regulations and agency actions that potentially burden the development of domestically produced energy resources. The most noted action of the order is a review of the Clean Power Plan, a central piece of the Obama administration’s climate agenda. The order also lifts the moratorium on federal coal leasing and calls for a review of existing regulations, including those governing hydraulic fracturing and methane emissions, which could signiﬁcantly impact the oil and gas industry in the long term.
