The New York Times has compiled a list of the 84 environmental rules on their way out during your nightmare presidency.
Here are the ones that have been completed so far:
"1. Canceled a requirement for oil and gas companies to report methane emissions. (EPA)"
"2. Revised and partially repealed an Obama-era rule limiting methane emissions on public lands, including intentional venting and flaring from drilling operations.
(Interior Department)"

"3. Loosened a Clinton-era rule designed to limit toxic emissions from major industrial polluters. (EPA)"
#PartyOverCountry #GreedOverEverything
"4. Stopped enforcing a 2015 rule that prohibited the use of hydrofluorocarbons, powerful greenhouse gases, in air-conditioners and refrigerators. (EPA)"
#ClimateChangeDeniers #GOPTaxScam
"5. Repealed a requirement that state and regional authorities track tailpipe emissions from vehicles traveling on federal highways.
(Transportation Department)"

"6. Reverted to a weaker 2009 pollution permitting program for new power plants and expansions. (EPA)"

"7. Amended rules that govern how refineries monitor pollution in surrounding communities. (EPA)"

"8. Directed agencies to stop using an Obama-era calculation of the “social cost of carbon” that rulemakers used to estimate the long-term economic benefits of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. (Executive Order)"

"9. Withdrew guidance that federal agencies include greenhouse gas emissions in environmental reviews. But several district courts have ruled that emissions must be included in such reviews. (Executive Order; Council on Environmental Quality)"
#RightSideOfHistory #BlueWave2020
"10. Lifted a summertime ban on the use of E15, a gasoline blend made of 15 percent ethanol. *Burning gasoline with a higher concentration of ethanol in hot conditions increases smog. (EPA)"
