They’re dismayed by the Trump Administration’s efforts to roll back climate change mandates, including diluting a requirement that energy companies look for potent greenhouse gas methane leaking from oil and gas wells, weakening fuel-efficiency standards for cars and light trucks and rolling back carbon pollution limits for power plants.
