  • Excluding scientific studies from environmental policy-making. 
  • Removing penalties on fossil fuel companies that kill birds while engaged in industrial activities like drilling. 
  • A rule that limits future EPA regulations by requiring the agency to ignore the greenhouse gas reductions that result. 
  • Delaying tighter restrictions on soot for at least five years—even though tightening the current standard would prevent tens of thousands of early deaths every year. 
  • Not increasing current air pollution standards for ozone. 
  • Stripping down environmental reviews for LNG exports. 
  • A series of rules that decrease energy efficiency standards for manufacturers and loosen efficiency testing requirements.
