Trump gave the green light to the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines.

He signed an executive action expediting environmental review for infrastructure projects.

Trump nominated a climate change doubter to head the Environmental Protection Agency.

The House voted to repeal a rule limiting methane emissions from drilling on public lands.

The Senate and House repealed the Stream Protection Rule, which blocked coal mining companies from polluting streams and rivers.

The Senate and House repealed a transparency rule that forced oil companies to disclose payments to foreign governments.
